TMJ (JAW) PHYSIOTHERAPY
Temporomandibular joints (TMJ) act like sliding hinges, connecting each side of the jawbone to the skull. Pain in these joints as well as the surrounding muscles that control jaw movement can be quite debilitating, often causing headaches, ear aches, severe pain while eating or talking, and more.
During a physiotherapy assessment, our therapists will evaluate the jaw and the neck, which can both be contributing factors to pain associated with TMJ. As many muscles and structures involved in TMJ conditions/dysfunctions are found below the surface, our therapists are likely to perform an internal exam as well - in this case, they will put on a glove and feel how the jaw is moving in order to provide treatment.
Results can often be expected in a few treatments, so please do not wait for months and months before consulting us about your jaw pain!
