TMJ is usually just stress held in the jaw muscles that over time can also effect the temporomandibular joint. Because acupuncture is good at cutting stress, reducing pain, and promoting healthy joints, it is really one of the best solutions out there for this condition. We will sometimes add a Chinese herbal formulation help in between treatments. The root of the problem is the stress, so this must be addressed in order to fix the problem.
