TMJ / TMD Therapy
Temporamandibular joint disorder is a condition which includes the following symptoms
- pain in jaw, face, neck or shoulder
- popping or clicking of the jaw
- locking of the jaw
- twitching muscles in the face
- difficulty opening the mouth
The most common causes include
- clenching or grinding (bruxism)
- poor bite alignment
- trauma or injury to the head/neck/jaw
- excessive chewing
The usual options for people who suffer the pain and discomfort of TMJ are to live with it or undergo dental surgery. I have been trained in the Blend TMJ Therapy® protocol, created by Tracey Kiernan of Blend Therapy Training.
How does this differ from other TMJ methods?
Blend TMJ Therapy® can be delivered online or in clinic. See https://www.tmjtherapyuk.co.uk/ for online course.
It is a highly effective and gentle method that gives you relief from your pain symptoms.
How many sessions do I need in clinic?
This depends on the severity of your symptoms and your progress. Typically I advise approximately 6 x 1.5hr sessions.
