The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects your mandible (lower jaw) to your skull. Clinical studies show that a lot of serious health conditions stem from TMJ issues. Craniosacral therapy is the perfect therapy to help relieve TMJ headache and TMJ pain. Oftentimes, it relieves the symptoms altogether. Here are the other important facts about how the treatment can unlock TMJ disorder.
How Does Craniosacral Healing Work?
Craniosacral therapy is a healing technique that focuses on cranial sutures, cranial bones, spine, and sacrum. Cranial sutures are comb-like structures where the various bones of the skull meet. These sutures move microscopically to adjust to the pressure caused by the spinal fluid movement.
In some situations, sutures are stuck and could not adjust to the pressure. This is where craniosacral therapy comes in. Craniosacral therapists apply a gentle light touch method to follow the rhythm of the craniosacral fluid and guide the sutures to achieve better mobility and alignment.
How Can Craniosacral Treat TMJ Headache and Other Symptoms?
Injuries, infections, inflammation, birth and other underlying pathologies can cause sutures misalignment, especially in the TMJ area. Emotional stress also plays a significant role in TMJ disorder.
There are times that the body fails to express and address negative emotions like anger, frustrations and grief. When this happens, the suppressed emotions are stored in our system. Through time, they will be manifested through teeth grinding during sleep, brain fog, headache, migraine, and jaw pain.
Balance Health is an expert in this field and offers craniosacral therapy sessions to improve the craniosacral system by seeking out and identifying areas of restriction, compression or tension around the TMJ area. Once the craniosacral system is in a stable equilibrium, it will enhance the proper function of TMJ and the overall well-being.
