What to Expect
What to Expect with a Headache Relief Treatment (TMJ Release)
We are currently seeing a lot of clients with headaches, neck pain, jaw ache - either newly experienced or increasing frequency. Headache pain can come from a number of sources, so we make it all about finding the root of the pain to provide sustainable results.
If you are experiencing toothache, headache, neck pain, shoulder tension the pain could be the result of a tight jaw, teeth-grinding or clenching or even incorrect breathing.
Your therapist will run a complete assessment, objective (question & answer), and subjective (visual and touch). They will then provide you with an overview of the best way to provide you relief.
There are a number of modalities that may be engaged to assist you; myofascial release, needling, cupping and TMJ release.
It is important that you discuss the modalities used with your therapist as they may include some oral manual work and temporal needles. Any allergies to latex or heavy metals must be discussed with your therapist prior to treatment.
Your therapist may provide exercises, postural cues and breathing techniques to assist you in elongating the results of your treatment. It is important to keep these top of mind to help you achieve a pain-free life.
