Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
Our temporomandibular joint (TMJ) program focuses on musculoskeletal problems relating to the TMJ or jaw region. Symptoms can include pain when eating/chewing certain foods, neck pain and headache. Treatment generally consists of manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue and joint mobilization, therapeutic exercise to improve mobility and/or stability of the jaw as well as patient education in posture, food selection and home exercise. In some cases ultrasound / phonophoresis or electrical stimulation may be used.
