I am currently having physiotherapy for my TMJ disorder (jaw). As well as my migraines and jaw pain, I also have very tight muscles in my neck and my upper back, which I'm convinced is all related. After all, the muscles and nerves do all inter-connect.

I can't say that I've seen fantastic results so far, but am advised that issues that have arisen over many years take a long time to resolve themselves, if they will at all. I have daily exercises to do, both jaw ones and neck ones.

I was sent to physio for neck and shoulder tension and I was given acupuncture (still free on NHS). You could feel how hard it was to initially get the needles in to my muscles at first and how much it relaxed them over a few sessions.
She then moved on to work on my migraine tension and it again helped to relax all the facial muscles that I was not even aware that had tightened up so much. So ask for the physio and acupuncture, in fact demand it, it helps you loads and relaxes all the muscles that tighten up when the constant migraines are griping us. It also relaxes you and I slept really well the nights after each session.

Yes I had a specialist physio who only dealt with headache disorders. He was great but sadly only took private patients so my time with him was limited to when my health care plan money dried up.
I does help alleviate the symptoms.

Oh wow, that sounds like a useful person to know! I bet he was really expensive though. Sad I'd love to find a specialist near me who really knows about TMJ issues and migraine.
