TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) affects approximately 50 million Americans currently. The temporomandibular joint is what opens and closes the mouth and is located near the ear. TMJ is believed to be related to displaced cartilage at the lower jaw, causing increased pain, headaches, and difficulty with opening and closing of the mouth.

Physical therapy works to decrease muscular pain in the facial and cervical regions, and to provide the patient with techniques and exercises to assist with posture and promote relaxation of the jaw. At PSPT, we strive to help our patients suffering from painful TMJ, so that they can return to a pain-free lifestyle.
