I’ve had TMJ massage done before, specifically the trigger points, and it’s
literally the worst pain I’ve ever experienced 🙁

MedicalMassage-edu Channel August 28, 2012 22:22:47

Dear emoemu4, At the time of massage procedure, including trigger point
therapy, one shouldn’t experience significant pain as you have described.
Obviously you came to the therapist because you suffer from pain and
discomfort. The infliction of pain that you’ve described is wrong and is
not therapeutic. Maybe your therapist believed in applying vigorous
pressure. In such a case I recommend to change a therapist. To be
continued…

MedicalMassage-edu Channel August 28, 2012 22:23:08

You saw me performing massage on TMJ. Obviously no vigorous pressure was
applied. At descriptions please find a link to self TMJ dysfunction
management. I hope it will be helpful. Best wishes. Boris

I had T.M.J and one of the best chiropractor cracks my neck and spine twice
a year and relieves the tension.

GazZy BwOi September 15, 2012 23:48:32

hey! Oh thats good that you do that,BUT i found if i kept my mouth as
relaxed as possible throughout the day and ESPECIALLY during the night, it
ould help stop any tension building up at all… try not to clench your
jaws as much and ALSO try eating at the other side of your mouth (chewing)
maybe that is causing the TMJ f the clicking is at only one of your
sides…

Can tmj disorders cause globus or crycopharyngeal spasm?

MedicalMassage-edu Channel December 2, 2012 20:08:37

Dear Sirgerry, As far as I know, it is possible that TMJ dysfunction and
Cricopharyngeal spasm to occure concurently. Usually Cricopharyngeal spasm
is the result for new formation within pharynx. The best is to consult with
the dr and if the doctor will exclude the new formation then this spasm are
most likely stress related. Best Wishes, Boris

Gerry Blue December 3, 2012 13:39:02

Thanks, doctor has said it is stress, I’ve been massagin my TMJ and it
really helps. Peace

my left ear is starting to hurt to i think i might have this

ura soul September 22, 2013 19:39:13

is there a part 2 to this video? thanks

Kevin Heit May 17, 2014 17:54:13

Hi, I still have a little doubt: I have a sort of popping or clicking
annoying feeling behind the ear and on its side, right after the tragus
(mostly in the left ear). This happens when somehow my skin is pulled in
one way, causing this annoying clicking sound occur when it is released
(like when someone hugs you and holds your face or something alike…)
Can this be part of TMJ disorder?
I would also add that right behind my left ear (where I get this annoying
pain when skin stretches) I have a little ball, which is bigger than the
one right behind the right ear.
I will appreciate your answer. It’s just that its got me worried.
Should I do self massages or something else? I’m also going to use a rigid
dental plate for sleeping.

Hello, why do you do it in a prone position at first? Doesn’t that cause
pain and pressure on TMJ?

MedicalMassage-edu Channel March 14, 2015 16:15:53

Hi tiffanyliana

I don’t think the prone position causes any additional pressure on TMJ. As
a matter of fact the main contact area in such position is forehead. Upper
back and neck muscles must be addressed first. Tension/insufficiency within
these muscles causes slight flexion of the neck forward. Even slight 5°
constant flexion forward tremendously increases work on already very tense
muscles that stabilizing and moving TMJ.

Best wishes
Boris

This man knows exactly what he is talking about. I
f you are not able to visit him, do the self massage techniques he teaches
and even send this video to your massage therapist.
It seems as if there is no cure for TMJ but there is effective management:
massage therapy, reduce stress and reduce the over working of the jaws:
tension, opening wide, closing hard, etc…
Good luck to everybody.
Thank you Boris
