Jaw pain, difficulty chewing, jaw locking, headaches, and facial pain are all conditions that can be reduced or eliminated with physical therapy.
We perform a comprehensive assessment of posture, upper quadrant muscle strength and flexibility, TMJ mobility and musculature, and daily habits to establish a personalized program to restore normal sleep, eating, and other daily activities.
Treatment may include:
- Ultrasound or electrical stimulation to reduce pain and improve joint mobility and muscle function
- Manual therapy and stretching to restore normal joint mobility and comfort
- Trunk, upper extremity and facial/oral strengthening and stretching exercises to regain full motion and TMJ function
- Home exercises and postural training to improve spinal and TMJ alignment limiting abnormal motion and wear and tear
No referral is required, but we do accept referrals from many dentists, surgeons and neurologists
