TMJ / TMD – Silence Your Clicking Jaw:
If you are having trouble with closing or opening your mouth, you may have a disc in your TMJ that is displaced. Jana can help place the disc back into the proper position and provide exercises to keep it in place.
Unique in Richmond, Jana also provides extra and intra-oral soft tissue massage, joint mobilization of the neck and TMJ to improve joint mobility, postural re-training to relieve muscle tension, and well as stress management techniques.
How Jana Helps Alleviate TMJ / TMD Symptoms:
Education – to help you understand your diagnosis and learn how to manage your symptoms. Postural training – to help you improve your joint alignment and muscular balance in order to optimize function. Behavior modification – prevent recurrences by increasing awareness, controlling your habits, and modifying your diet, if necessary. Manual therapy – advanced techniques are used to address muscular imbalances, and target painful craniofacial, jaw, and cervical muscles. TMJ mobilizations are also utilized to optimize joint mobility and mechanics. Therapeutic exercises – to strengthen weak muscles and provide stability for your joints.
Myofascial Release Therapy:
Fascia is connective tissue that runs through the entire body. It is like the glue that holds all the tissues together under the skin. Fascia and muscle tissue, when they are healthy and working properly, slide across each other freely and allow us to move through space smoothly and with ease. Problems can arise in connective tissues, either through injuries, scar tissue, post-surgery adhesion’s, dehydration, and more that cause the fascia to become bound and immobile. The result is often pain, tightness, limited range of motion, adhesion’s, and general discomfort. A medical massage therapist can find the restrictions and release them using several techniques. Skin rolling, deep cross friction and dry warm friction are a few of the methods involved.
Trigger Point Therapy:
Trigger points are small hyper-irritable nodules, or small knots found in muscles and tendons. The presents of trigger points may cause muscle pain and dysfunction.
Sometimes the pain refers to a distant part from the point. Points are released by compressing them for up to 60 seconds. We also use the “spray and stretch” method pioneered by Janet Travell. Trigger points are often missed in medical diagnosis as it takes a “trained touch” to reach into the tissue and locate them. Trigger points are also often missed by an MRI. If you are suffering from musculoskeletal pain and no one has been able to diagnose the problem, you may be suffering from myo-fascial trigger points.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage:
A Lymphatic Drainage Massage can help your body heal faster after cosmetic surgery because it removes metabolic waste, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules and foreign substances from the tissues.
Compression garments are critical to the healing process and assist Lymphatic Drainage Massage. Compression garments help your body recover faster because they help minimize swelling, promote faster healing, and support your new contours for optimal results. Be sure to discuss your options with your surgeon!
