Our physical therapists are highly skilled to provide TMD therapy to people seeking relief from Temporomandibular Joint pain. This therapy will focus on correcting postural deficits and faulty biomechanics that place undue stress on the jaw and its’ surrounding musculature. Relaxation techniques and the elimination of unhealthy habits will allow for pain levels to begin decreasing with the start of care. Our exercises and tissue work combined with joint mobilization techniques will strive to restore pain free range of motion and symmetrical opening/closing of the jaw. After jaw biomechanics are restored, emphasis will be placed on developing strength and stability when eating more difficult foods.
As always, adherence to a detailed home program and coordination with outside dental professionals will allow for keeping your jaw feeling better for long term.
