Back to Health Muscular Therapy now offering TMJ Relief

back

Phone: 978-957-9560

Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ) Dysfunction

Back to Health is able to alleviate and possibly correct TMJ and associated problems through a variety of technigues.  These include releasing the muscles inside the mouth (intraoral releases), myofacial treatment of the external muscles used for chewing and swallowing, and working with the joint and bite.  The treatment may also include some cranial work to open and or correct a misaligned TMJ using muscle energy. Neck and shoulder massage is included along with exercises to increase mobility.  Patricia is well trained both professionally and personally in this disorder and has consulted with dentists, oral surgeons and osteopaths along the way.  Read testimonials attached from some happy clients.  This therapy is also productive for HEADACHE sufferers too. This type of therapy will create physical changes, if you are patient. 

Testimonials from TMJ clients

I have been under Patti's expert care for several years now to treat chronic TMJ related pain in my left temporal and jaw area and related headaches. I am very happy with her ongoing professional treatment. She has used a variety of muscular release styles to free up tense and strained muscles in the effected area.  She is always researching and exploring different muscle releasing techniques for maximum effectiveness. The intraoral tissue releases she uses consistently has been most effective in reducing the tightness of the over strained muscles and tendons in my left jaw area.  Patti  has also shared with me mouth, tongue and jaw exercises that can be done at home to maintain flexibilty in the affected area and to alliviate discomfort during TMJ flare ups over the course of a day.  Over the course of her treatment, she has contributed to a reduction in my headache severity and related muscle/joint TMJ pain.  Thank you Patti for all your help and I would recommend her highly for anyone with TMJ related issues.

Before I started seeing Patti at Back To Health, I was miserable. I'm not over exaggerating either. I had been struggling with TMJ for probably about a year and I had been to the oral surgeons. They all told me the same thing, "stay on a soft food diet." I tried that, but my TMJ wasn't getting any better, and to be honest, I was missing being able to eat steak. My TMJ was awful, it was to the point where I couldn't open my mouth wider than a quarter. Needless to say, trips to the dentist were miserable. My jaw was constantly clicking, and it was extremely painful for me to try to open my mouth. I began seeing a chiropractor, which helped a little bit at first, but he could only go as far as my neck, and the big problem area was obviously, my jaw. So he recommended that I make an appointment at Back To Health with Patti, because she could actually work on my jaw. So that's what I did, and I am so so very happy I did, because Patti changed everything for me. Not only is she kind and a great person to talk to, but she really knows what she's doing. It took some time for my jaw to start getting better, and there were some days when I felt like it never would. But Patti didn't give up, and she always told me not to either. And she was right. Gradually, my jaw started to respond to the muscular therapy Patti was giving me. It was great! I could eat some what solid foods again! Although I wasn't up for steak just yet, I could open my jaw wider, with much less pain. I always looked forward to my appointments with Patti because every time I left, I felt so much better. That and I enjoyed talking with her for the half hour we had! Thanks to Patti, my jaw freed up and has been great ever since. I am very happy to say I can once again eat whatever I want, including steak. So, if you're struggling with TMJ like I was, there is hope! Please make an appointment with Patti, she will fix you, I promise. I honestly don't know what I would have done if I never went to see her. She fixed my TMJ and I'm completely positive that she'll be able to fix yours too!

After getting massages for TMJ with Patti at Back to Health for the past 4 months, I would confidently recommend her to others who suffer from TMJ. Her intraoral release massages provide relief that has been much needed. She also works on the muscles throughout the neck, shoulders, back and upper chest explaining how they are connected  to TMJ. I have found her whole body approach to be very effective. In addition to the massages, Patti has shown me numerous exercises I can do at home to help with TMJ. Her in-depth knowledge in this area has been key in my treatment plan.
