Temperomandipular Dysfunction Services

Temperomandibular Dysfunction is a disorder involving the chewing muscles and joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull. Symptoms associated with TMJ disorders may include difficulty or discomfort biting and chewing; clicking, popping, or grating sounds when opening or closing the your mouth; facial pain; earache; headache; jaw pain; and difficulty opening or closing your mouth. Physical therapy is often implemented as a conservative treatment to educate you on how to stretch, relax, or massage the muscles around your jaw; teach you things to avoid such as yawning, chewing gum, and opening your mouth excessively; learn stress-reducing techniques; as well as instruct you on exercises and postural awareness which may help reduce your symptoms.
