In these drawings, red signifies the location of the ache. The crosses are the the tense muscle areas (triggerpoints). These are painful at touch. By releasing these tense muscle areas (Triggerpoint Treatment) , the ache stops.
This is only an example of a few muscles. You have many more muscles like that.
We help you by releasing the muscles that cause your pain (see above for examples).
However, to prevent re-occurrence of the symptoms we will need to find the cause of your tight painful muscles.
Possible causes are;
- Posture, teeth grinding, breathing patterns, stress, condition of jaw joint, neck injury, neck pain and direct trauma to the jaw.
- Active involvement in your home exercise programme limits the number of treatments required.
