TMJ/Jaw Release

The Temporomandibular joint also known as the TMJ. It is a paired joint that connects the lower jaw to the upper jaw. The joints work together with the facial bones, muscles ligaments and fascia to allow the opening, closing and side to side movements of the mouth.

Any disruption in the TMJ joint is known as TMJ dysfunction. This can result in the joint not working together correctly which can cause pain, muscle spasm, muscle tenderness, tissue damage and over time joint and teeth damage.

Celeste has recently finished her TMJ course, which focuses on myofascial release, which is the most common cause of jaw pain. This can happen when we hold tension in our jaw, have any TMJ dysfunction or possibly clench or grind our teeth.

TMJ dysfunction can present as:

  • Clicking or popping in the jaw joint
  • Muscle spasms
  • Pain in and around the jaw joint
  • Locking or limited opening of the mouth
