Evidence of Acupuncture Reducing Symptoms of TMJ

A study published by the British Acupuncture Society found that “acupuncture is a simple, relatively safe and potentially efficacious and useful technique in the management of temporomandibular dysfunction (TMJ).” By returning the body’s natural flow back to order, acupuncture can relieve pain and inflammation in the jaw.

The study found that acupuncture produced a beneficial effect in 85 percent of participants suffering from TMJ and a pain reduction intensity on average of 75 percent. Another study done at the Ribeirão Preto Dental School at São Paulo University in Brazil concluded that patients with TMJ had significantly less pain, less clenching and increased strength of bite after three months of acupuncture treatment. If you or someone you know is suffering from TMJ, let them know that acupuncture can help!
