Our physical therapists treat a wide variety of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders and headaches, sometimes combining treatments with suggest courses of dentistry, stress management and dietary recommendations. TMJ disorders affect the hinge joint of the jaw, including the surrounding muscles. This area of the face contributes to chewing, talking, yawning and bite or occlusion. Successful treatment begins with assessment of posture alignment of head and neck. Spinal mobilization may be required to help joints move with greater ease. Other treatment options include heat, cold, ultrasound and electrical stimulation.
