TMJ Pain

TMJ Pain is sometimes caused by arthritis but more commonly it is associated with "Oral" conditions such as the clenching and un-clenching of teeth can tire muscles and cause them to spasm. Moist heat is very helpful for the sore muscles of TMJ. Moist heat promotes blood flow into the muscle which aids in healing and relaxation of the muscle as well. This increased blood flow also helps analgesic and/or anti- inflammatory medications into the muscles.

Cold therapy may also help, depending on your personal preference. In much the same way that heat helps your body to heal itself, cold therapy can reduce inflammation, relax muscle spasm and relieve pain.

In either case, Battle Creek® has your answer! Thermophore® Deep-Heat therapy provides the intense moist heat that doctors recommend for pain relief, and Ice It!® ColdCOMFORT therapy systems make it convenient to apply cold therapy, because you don't have to hold anything in place.
