What Are The Causes Of TMJ Pain And How To Get TMJ Pain Relief?

The most basic reason for Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) and pain to coexist is when the operation of the jaw joint is restricted in its normal utility and the restriction causes pressure on the adjoining nerves. On several instances, the TMJ pain is intense enough to directly affect the masticatory muscles. When the masticatory muscles and joints are affected, a person will typically experience a range of myofascial pain as well as pain in the other surrounding regions of the upper spinal column.

  • Mal alignment of teeth and other dental disorders can directly cause TMJ and symptoms of pain
  • Ear disorder or an ear infection can indirectly lead to TMJ and pain subsequently
  • Jaw joint disorder can arise from upper spinal dysfunction and create pain
  • Arthritis is a common cause for TMJ pain symptoms
  • Whiplash injuries are also known to contribute to some of the TMJ pain symptoms

Ways to attain TMJ pain relief

The most popular manner of dealing with TMJ appears to be focused on managing its symptoms. This type of TMJ pain relief is mostly sought through quick fixes such as drugs. Although in severe cases some form of drugs may have to be administered, this course of pain relief should ideally be avoided as far as possible. And the best way to avoid this would be to ensure that TMJ cases are attended to promptly before the condition aggravates.

Sometimes very serious cases of Bruxism are recommended surgery as treatment. This kind of Bruxism treatment should only be considered as a last recourse solution.

Stress reduction therapy (or self help relaxation methods) is a well established treatment for TMJ

There are specific types of exercises that are also recommended as TMJ treatment.

Of all TMJ treatments, the most substantial by far is a holistic and multi disciplinary treatment.
