Symptoms of TMJ Dysfunction

TMJ pain can be eased if you get it diagnosed early. Here are a few common signs of TMJ dysfunction:

  • Pain in jaw muscles

  • Grinding or popping sound during eating

  • Jaw locking

  • Muffling in the ear

  • Frequent headaches

  • Neck and shoulder pain

  • Dizziness

  • Tinnitus


One of the most common causes of TMJ pain is muscle stiffness around the jaw area. Like many ailments related to muscle stiffness, massage therapy can help relieve the pain by relaxing the muscles. Our massage treatment will help decompress the soft tissues around your neck and mouth. This will help your jaw function properly again. We also recommend adopting habits such as avoiding chewing gum and hard-to-chew foods and wearing a mouthguard if prescribed.
