If you experience discomfort, clicking, altered chewing or changes in your ability to open and close your mouth, you may have a Temporomandibular disorder (TMD). These disorders typically affect the Temporomandibular joint (TMJ), the connection point of the temporal fossa (a section of skull) and jawbone. TMD pain can affect the head, neck, teeth, jawline, temples and eyes. The good news is that physical therapy can help. At your first visit, your physical therapist will discuss your dental history, habits (gum chewing, cheek biting, jaw clenching), sleep patterns, general well-being and any difficulties you may have with chewing, speaking or breathing. With the correct treatment plan and the help of your physical therapist we can get you back to health.
