Is A Jaw Muscle Causing Your Toothache, TMJ or Ringing of the Ears?

By Pressure Positive September 19, 2014 No comments
When it comes to pain we'd rather live without. Toothache and TMJ (Jaw Joint) pain certainly rank among the least tolerable. Fortunately, a common culprit is often responsible for these symptoms: A powerful jaw muscle within the rear of the cheek, named the Masseter. Fortunately, trigger points in the Masseter can be treated by a trigger point therapist or by you at home! If anyone you know suffers from these symptoms, have them perform the following quick tests and self-care tips below to identify possible trigger points and myofascial dysfunction in the Masseter.

Recognizing the Underlying Causes of TMJ Pain

Join us for a free 1 hour Webinar sponsored by Custom Craftworks, a brand of Pivotal Health Solutions.The TMJ Association states that TMJ Disorders are a complex and poorly understood set of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw joint and surrounding tissues and limitation in jaw movements. The trigeminal nerve (located directly behind the TMJ) is the most complex nerve in your body. The trigeminal and facial nerves work together to support the over 300 muscles, and all other structures of the head and face. Abnormal muscle function and a bad jaw position causes breakdown of the joint cartilage, abnormal nerve function, and changes blood flow to the brain. Along with jaw and face pain, this muscle imbalance is responsible for headaches and most migraines.

Do you experience migraines, headaches or face pain? Perhaps you've received a diagnosis called "trigeminal neuralgia" or "tic doulourex." There is a direct "cause and effect" link between jaw problems, face pain, and headaches. Jaw problems exacerbate and can even cause headache and/or face pain through the trigeminal vascular complex, which consists of the trigeminal nerve system and related blood vessels.
