Trigger Points

TMJ Trigger Points
Trigger points refer to specific areas of muscle tension or knots that can contribute to pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. These trigger points are typically found in the muscles of the jaw, face, and neck.

Common trigger points associated with TMJ may include those in the masseter muscles (which are responsible for chewing), the temporalis muscles (located on the sides of the head), and the muscles of the neck and shoulders. When these trigger points are activated or irritated, they can lead to symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, ear pain, and difficulty with jaw movement.

Do you suffer from jaw pain or frequent headaches? The TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the South Shore may have the solution for you.
