I’m two-thirds of the way through writing daily posts about living with, treating, and resolving TMJ disorder issues.
I’ve posted on who tends to get it, linked to videos of self-care techniques, written about reducing night grinding and daytime clenching, explored the connection between the jaw and the pelvis (and the jaw and the endocrine system), shared recommendations about essential oils for relief, discussed the throat chakra, shared an upper body yoga sequence, listed nutrients that can make a difference, described acupressure points, posted on what massage therapists can do to help (includes what I do), what acupuncturists do, and what chiropractors do. And more.
If you’ve tried any techniques that are new to you after reading these posts, what’s helped?
What would you like to learn that I haven’t covered yet? Here are some possibilities. If you have others in mind, please comment.
- releasing trigger points in your jaw muscles
- the role of the sphenoid bone in structural health (your jaw muscles attach to it)
- meditations and music for the throat chakra
- calming your nervous system
- mouthguards, night guards, and splints
- relaxing the facial muscles
- jade rolling and facial massage
- what any other professions do to help with TMJ issues
- the contributions of Weston Price, dental researcher
- more on any topic I’ve posted on so far
If you have any other TMJ-related topics you’d like to see addressed, please comment.
