TMJ Therapy

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Therapy:

Temporomandibular joint therapy, commonly known as TMJ therapy, aims to address issues with the joints connecting the jaw to the skull. Dysfunctions in these joints can result in severe jaw and facial pain, affecting everyday activities. TMJ therapy offers relief from pain and addresses the root cause by correcting joint dysfunctions.

How Temporomandibular Joint Therapy Can Help:

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) can make simple tasks like eating or talking painful, and even opening or closing the mouth can become challenging. TMJ therapy is designed to alleviate these issues and provide relief. It can address various symptoms associated with TMD, including:

  • Chronic pain in the jaw and face
  • Ear pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Difficulty in jaw movement
  • Clicking sounds during jaw movement
  • Frequent headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Face swelling and bruising
  • Toothaches

How Temporomandibular Joint Therapy Works:

Our team of physiotherapists, chiropractors, and specialists will create a personalized treatment plan based on a thorough examination, which may include diagnostic imaging tools like x-rays, ultrasound, and MRI. The treatment plan may involve:

  • Jaw and neck exercises
  • Massage
  • Manual stretches
  • Posture adjustments
  • Acupuncture
  • Heat/ice therapy
  • Relaxation and breathing techniques

Expected Results:

The timeline for resolving TMJ disorders varies based on the severity of the condition. However, physiotherapy and chiropractic interventions often provide rapid pain relief. Immediate initiation of TMJ therapy, without prolonged wait times for procedures, contributes to the prompt alleviation of symptoms.
