In a previous blog post we discussed how dry needling can help treat TMJ. Here you will read about the effects massage can have on the joint dysfunction. Remember, we offer FREE consultations with our physical therapists AND if you’ve never received a massage from us, your first 30 minutes are FREE!
Massage is one of many techniques that can help address the cause of TMJD. Most massage therapists have likely had clients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction as 65% to 85% of Americans experience symptoms during their lives. Symptoms include pain and muscle spasms in the head, mandible, neck and shoulder muscles; headaches; earaches; clicking noises or deviations when the mandible moves; limited ability to open the mouth; and dizziness.
Vida Jiu Jitsu is a local business here in Mandeville. Greg Lapin, owner, sat down with us and enlightened us on the sport. Dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been teaching people self defense, getting people in shape and (in general) keeping people active. Check out our interview with him!
