TMJ Pain Relief
Definition: Temporal Mandibular Joint Pain, Temporal Mandibular Joint Syndrome, or Temporal Mandibular Joint headache is pain or discomfort which originates as a result of an abnormality of the temporal mandibular joints and may result in pain in the jaw, face, head and neck regions.
TMJ Pain Information
Temporal Mandibular Joint Pain (TMJ):
The temporal mandibular joints are small but very complex joints on each side of the face, in front of the ear and are the reason that we can chew food and communicate through speech. The temporal mandibular joints are subjected to incredible forces when food is chewed. As with any other joint, the temporal mandibular joints can be injured by direct trauma to the face or jaw or may deteriorate gradually with a condition known as degenerative joint disease or degenerative arthritis. Pain from temporal mandibular joints may be on both sides or limited to one side. Temporal mandibular joint pain is usually a constant ache aggravated by movement of the jaw with chewing or talking and frequently associated with clicking and popping of the joint. Temporal mandibular joint pain frequently travels or radiates into the face, temple area, and even the forehead and is often difficult to differentiate from other headaches such as tension headaches, headaches due to dental abnormalities such as abscess, or diseases of the ears such as middle or inner ear infections or sinusitis.
TMJ Pain Treatments
Of course, for headaches that are suspected to be a result of any of the life-threatening causes noted above, emergency services (911) should be contacted immediately. However, treatments of headaches due to benign causes vary and depend on the type of headache. Tension headache pain may be improved with a change in lifestyle, a reduction of work hours, relaxation techniques, or improved rest and regular moderate exercise. Headaches involving infections such as dental abscess, middle ear infections, or sinus infections require treatment of the underlying infection and possibly surgery. Temporal mandibular joint pain is frequently treated with anti inflammatory medications, joint injections with steroids, oral appliances and often requires a specialist such as an oral surgeon who may use splinting or even surgery.
The standard treatments for moderate to severe or acute or chronic headache pain are over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription narcotic and non-narcotic medication. As most patients who suffer with this type of headache pain soon realize, these treatments are usually not sufficient and many, especially the oral medications, are associated with serious side effects such as sedation, nausea, constipation, and even addiction. Extended use of some over-the counter (OTC) medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen, and acetaminophen may even result in stomach ulcers, kidney failure, heart failure, and liver failure. Many headache sufferers often search for alternative solutions to the usual over-the-counter and prescription medications.
