Question TENS for TMJ (neck/shoulders)

Has anyone had any experience with TENS for neck/shoulder issues related to TMJ? I have used TENS in the past in physical therapy, and had great results, but never specifically in regards to neck/shoulder and TMJ.

Re: TENS for TMJ (neck/shoulders)

Neuromuscular dentists often use it to both relax the facial, jaw and neck muscles and to help determine and/or correct bite issues. So if you like the Tens Unit and have gotten relief or improvement in other areas when using it then try it. I found it tend to tighten my muscles even more so - which were overworked to begin with - so I would feel like I had been a car wreck afterwards - but maybe it was b/c the dentist felt it needed to be turned up high to get better benefits - I am not sure.
