Unraveling the Root Causes of TMJ Dysfunction: A Holistic Approach to Treatment and Recovery!

TMJ dysfunction can be a complex and multifaceted condition. Still, with a thorough understanding of its root causes and a holistic approach to treatment, our massage therapists can effectively guide you on your journey to recovery.

The common causes of TMJ Dysfunction:

  • Trauma or Injury: One of the primary causes of TMJ dysfunction is trauma or injury to the jaw, face, or neck. This can result from direct impacts, such as a car accident, sports injury, or indirect strain caused by prolonged clenching or grinding of the teeth (bruxism).
  • Arthritis: Arthritis, particularly osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, can lead to degeneration and inflammation within the TMJ. This can cause discomfort, stiffness, and limited range of motion.
  • Misalignment: An imbalance or misalignment within the jaw or surrounding structures can contribute to TMJ dysfunction. This may result from congenital factors, orthodontic issues, or poor posture.

What to expect from your sessions

At Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness, our expert massage therapists dedicate themselves to help you achieve optimal health and wellness. At your initial session in Airdrie, AB, you can expect a comprehensive evaluation and personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Our skilled massage therapists will conduct a thorough evaluation during your first visit. This process begins with a detailed review of your medical history to understand any pre-existing conditions or concerns. Following this, a hands-on assessment will be performed to examine your posture, joint mobility, muscle strength, and overall function. Specialized testing may also be utilized to identify specific issues, such as range of motion limitations or muscle imbalances.

Some of the most common treatments used by our massage therapists for TMJ disorders include:

  • Manual Therapy: This hands-on technique involves gentle manipulation and mobilization of the jaw and surrounding soft tissues, helping to alleviate pain and increase mobility.
  • Therapeutic Exercise: Targeted exercises are prescribed for strengthening and stretching the muscles surrounding the TMJ, promoting stability and improved function.
  • Relaxation Techniques: Mindfulness and breathing exercises can help decrease muscle tension and stress, often exacerbating TMJ symptoms.
