Treat TMD/TMJ With Whole Body Vibration Therapy

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, otherwise known as TMD — and sometimes improperly called TMJ after the temporomandibular joint in the jaw that lets you move your jaw up and down and side to side — is a disorder that inflicts many people in the world today. We don’t know exactly what causes TMD, but some experts believe it’s caused by problems you have with your joint or jaw.

According to WebMD, injury to your jaw, the joint, or the muscles of your head and neck can lead to TMD. Grinding or clenching your teeth, movement of the soft cushion or disc between the ball and socket of the joint, arthritis and stress can also lead to TMD.

Reducing or Curing Symptoms of TMD/TMJ with Vibration

Whole Body Vibration can reduce or even cure problems of headaches, clicking jaws, and joint pain around the jaw. Stand on the vibration machine with your feet in a comfortable position. Place the palms of your hands just under the hinged point of your jaw. You’ll be able to feel the vibration go through your arms and hands and into the soft tissue and ligaments.
