Temporomandibular Joint Disorder is the displacement or inflammation of the temporomandibular joint. The symptoms include lock jaw, clicking and uneven jaw movement, immense pain and swelling. The tension in the masseter muscles across the temporomandibular joint puts immense force on the joint and the pressure can eventually force out the cartilage from its natural position.
This condition is a self devaluation conflict which is hanging. The main culprit is the masseter muscle which is used to control the jaw movement when we eat and speak.
TMJd starts with a shocking moment in a situation where the person is unable to express themselves vocally for whatever reason. Depending on which side of the jaw is affected, location can help decipher if it is a mother or child related conflict or a person someone acknowledges as a partner like a father, husband, best friend. There will be a degree of stress and worry involved around the subject matter.
TMJd is referred to as a hanging conflict which means a situation may be partly resolved but still causing issues in our daily lives. The brain interprets a problem with being unable to open the jaw properly to speak and in response it strengthens the masseter muscle to re-enable control of the jaw.
Simply by recalling the precise moment the conflict shock occurred, along with the recollection of the nature of the shock may be all it takes to be relieved from the tension and the TMJd related pain instantly. In my opinion, it so far appears that splints, dental work or operations will have very little benefit to the overall nature of the condition.
