TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint Message Board


TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint Board Index


The temporal bone can potentially be a huge player in tmj. It's not a hinged joint but it definitely moves in relationship to the other cranial bones, in six directions. However, the position of the temporal bone is usually effect and not cause. The temporal bones move in response to postural issues. You can get the temporal bones "adjusted" by some chiropractors, cranial osteopaths, craniosacral therapists and perhaps other practitioners but if you don't address the underlying postural issues the temporal bones will just go back.

I got my temporal bones "adjusted" six or seven years ago and it cured my joint jumping and popping issues. In one treatment. I still had to follow up with soft tissue therapy for the pterygoid muscles and address the forward head posture issue.
