Cream for tmj pain

What cream can I rub on tmj joints and cheek bones to relieve pain when they play up especially when I have a cold.

Hello Frangipani,
Frankly I think it makes little difference; deep soft tissue work may well relieve the pain in the muscles such as the temporalis or internal pterygoid, but the contents of the cream are of little consequence. It's the massage that helps.

But it's usually a joint problem, so massage will at best bring temporary relief. Try rather the TMJ exercises at our site; use the search function key.

If it's brought on by a cold, then it may be a sinus condition rather than related to your jaw joints.
