Massage therapy will be done externally. One manipulation is called myofascial release, where the muscles in the neck and the pectoralis major are manipulated. This serves to release tension and pressure on the jaw, since the muscles in the jaw are connected to the neck and down to the pectoral area. This myofascial release technique can also help correct shoulder posture. As previously stated, bad posturing can lead to TMJ pain.
These techniques of muscle stripping, kneading, and trigger point releasing can help relieve the pain associated with TMJ disorders. They can also increase blood flow to the muscles and relieve stress by releasing endorphins
