    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

    a year and relieves the tension.

    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

    Can tmj disorders cause globus or crycopharyngeal spasm?

    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

    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?´╗┐

    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

    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´╗┐
