"Why Not Consider Massage Therapy As Adjunct Therapy For Your TMJ Patients?"
Therapeutic massage sessions can help to get rid TMJ pain. We don't pretend to be experts on all the intricacies associated with TMJ, however what we do know and what we do well at Holistic Medical Massage Clinic is understand biomechanics, muscles and myfascial pain syndromes.
The TMJ is made up of the temporalis, interal pterygoid, lateral pterygoid and the masseter muscles. And when ever the TMJ muscles used in chewing fail to work in combination with each other, there are effective balancing techniques that our licensed therapists are skilled performing.
Medical Massage will balance musculoskeletal distortion in face, neck, shoulders and upper back in order to eliminate TMJ pain. Once the body is balanced, the patient is able to restore an efficient way for energy to move. Free energy is used by the body to work more efficiently and improves all physiological activities.
On the first visit the therapist evaluates the patient by screening gait patterns and measuring the positioning of the body to determine musculoskeletal distortion, biomechanical dysfunction and soft tissue pathology that causes these patterns. An exacting analysis of proper posture and biomechanics explains the cause and effect relationship to pain. Once we know how your body works, we can determine the reason why the patient has pain and the other symptoms.
Then the therapist develops a treatment plan that is based on the knowledge of the body. Therapeutic massage treatment is custom designed because we apply pressure and specific techniques that are unique only for that body. That’s why our treatment for TMJ Pain at Holistic Medical Massage Clinic in Tacoma is effective and different from others.
Our staff at Holistic Medical Massage Clinic is fully trained to perform the necessary assessments, documentation, and progress reporting required by the insurance companies and medical community.
