Management of TMJ disorders mainly involves treating the underlying problem. When TMJ pain arises because of an improper posture caused by the misalignment of the neck and the back region, a massage can offer good relief. If the underlying cause of the TMJ pain is due to a poor bite, we may recommend braces or a surgical solution if the problem is complex. Generally, we recommend a night guard to prevent excessive pressure on your jaw joints caused by nighttime teeth grinding.
