I just discovered a new tool to eliminate the main source of muscle pain in the jaw muscles which are Trigger Points. Wow, the trigger points have been a hidden cause of TMJ pain for so long. Massage therapists and Chiropractors have known about this for while, but it really hasn't caught on in the Dental or Medical field.

TMJ treatment options can be directed several different ways, depending on what your (or loved one's) situation is.
Update: I have found two good sources for TMJ Exercises. I purchased them myself and reviewed them and wrote up some reviews on them. You can click on the link below to read my reviews on them.
Click here for the link to www.TMJReview.com to read more. The exercises in the two programs that I reviewed are similar to the Exercises that my TMJ Physical Therapist uses to treat my TMJ patients when I refer to him.
The links to the above TMJ Exercise programs are a bit salesy, but the exercises are good. They are the only place that I have found TMJ exercises put into one/two locations on the internet.
The 7 Treatments listed below, in my opinion, are the best treatments available. Now, these are treatments that ELIMINATE Pain, they are not necessarily treatments that CURE your pain. The number of cures, is as many as the causes.
Proper Treatment for a TMJ Cure requires a thorough examination which includes a clinical exam of the head, neck, and jaw muscles, watching the patient as she responds to my questions, to diagnose possibly less tangible problems causing the symptoms.
The exercises on these two websites are similar to the Exercises that my TMJ Physical Therapist uses to treat my TMJ patients when I refer to him. The link webpage is a bit salesy, but the exercises are good. It's the only place that I have found TMJ exercises put into one/two locations on the internet.
Now, we TMJ Dentists can fix bites and get you out of pain with typical Splint therapy and other recommended therapies, but...
beyond the Physical information from the clinical exam, it is my obligation and focus to read the patient beyond the physical Chief Complaints of symptoms, to identify primary factors causing the problems.
Since the most common cause (over 50%) of TMJ disorders including a TMJ Headache is...Stress, it's difficult at times to diagnose the True cause (what's the cause of Stress).
Some patients may not answer the REAL stress issue in my Dental office (such as Marital problems), because the real answer may be too personal for her to reveal. So, I take this very seriously, and recommend what I truly see, believe and diagnose.
