Temporomandibular Joint Disorders Natural Remedy

Human Jaw

Human Jaw

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD or TMJD) is very difficult to pronounce as well as hard to live with as told to me by one of my friends who suffered with these conditions and had to be hospitalized on more than one occasions.


It can also be referred to as temporomandibular joint dysfunction syndrome. The temporomandibular joints are joints that connect the mandible to the skull.

TMD is pain in the jaw joint or muscles that move the jaw. This pain can spread to the temples, cheeks, throat, jaw teeth as well as areas behind the eyes. It can also cause headaches and earaches.

TMJD also causes stiffness in the neck, popping sound whenever the jaw moves, ringing in the ears and sometimes stuffy nose.

Some symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders are difficulties of opening the mouth more than two inches, difficulty when talking, yawning or chewing, jaw pain and when there is pain in ears, neck and shoulders. In some cases you may experience locked jaw.

However, there are natural remedies to relieve TMJD. One such remedy is massage. Massaging the jaw muscles will ease painful muscle tension according to Elliot Greene, past president of the American Massage Therapy Association. To find these muscles, which are located at the back away from the chin, clench the teeth. Use the fingers to search for these muscles. When the muscles are found, unclenched the teeth, and massage the muscles in circular, gentle movements until the tension is released.

This can be done for approximately ten minutes once per day. If pain is more severe, three times per day is sufficient.

Repeat the same process for the second muscles which are located towards the front of the scalp above the ears until tension is also released.

Relaxation and meditation may also help persons suffering from TMD. The practice of stretch-based relaxation two times per day may aid in decreasing the symptoms of TMD. These natural remedies can regulate tensions in the muscles and also regulate the heart and breathing rates which can counter stress. This will aid in a person's sensitivity to pain which is caused by Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

Be reminded however, that if you think you are suffering from TMD, before using any natural remedy, go see your doctor.
