Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)

Commonly referred to as TMJ, disorders of the temporomandibular joint can cause pain, clicking, catching and ultimately difficulty with important tasks such as talking and eating.   The muscles that control jaw movement may be involved and, just like any other joint and muscle in the body, respond well to physical therapy to help alleviate symptoms and restore normal mobility.  Our therapists have attended specialty training for treatment of conditions impacting the TMJ.

Sessions typically last from 45-60 minutes depending on patient tolerance with periodic rest breaks as needed early in the program.  The typical program involves 2-3 visits per week to gain a positive training effect.  Our program begins with a thorough physical therapy evaluation and communication with your physician regarding your initial status and continues with regular assessments of progress provided to your physician as well.

We are committed to help those struggling to regain their functional mobility, independence, and joy in taking positive “Strides” in life.
