The Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. You have one joint on each side of your jaw.

- pain in the muscles that control jaw movement
- locking of the jaw and pain with opening and closing jaw

How Osteopathy can help TMJ pain
Osteopathic treatment can be very effective in relieving TMJ pain. To relieve your TMJ pain your Osteopath will:
- use soft tissue techniques to loosen and release tight muscles connecting to the jaw that may be causing tension and pain
- treat any movement restrictions of the jaw and assist to restore the correct movement and biomechanics to the TMJ
- correct poor posture of the neck and upper back that may be leading to tightness and joint restriction in the muscles and joints surrounding and indirectly affecting the jaw
- provide advice on stretches and exercises that may assist in alleviating pain and prevent a reoccurrence of symptoms
