"Physical Therapy for TMD
Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) is a broad term that encompasses disorders of the temporomandibular joint and its associated anatomical structures. If you have pain in your jaw on one or both sides, you may have TMD (sometimes referred to as TMJ). Symptoms including jaw pain, the sensation that your face muscles are in spasm, and clicking or catching of your jaw can make daily activities such as talking and eating difficult. Symptoms typically come on gradually and are not associated with a specific event or injury.
Our skilled physical therapists are educated and experienced in treating this disorder. We focus on assessment, direct intervention and patient education with the goal of decreasing pain, improving posture and restoring movement and more normal jaw mechanics. Utilizing evidence-based physical therapy services specifically designed to address your unique situation, your PT will work with you to determine the cause of your pain and develop goals for your course of therapy."
