Physical Therapy is an effective, non-invasive treatment option for Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction. The TMJ is essential in talking, eating, and normal daily activities. TMJ disorders may be diagnosed by your dentist or doctor. When the TMJ causes dysfunction, it is often diagnosed as Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD).
Common Symptoms of Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)
Pain or tenderness of the jaw, mouth, ear, or temple region
Clicking, popping, or clunking of the TMJ
Catching or locking when opening or closing the mouth
Difficulty and/or pain with chewing or talking
Swelling on the side of the face
A sudden change in dental occlusion (the way the upper and lower teeth fit together)
Our physical therapists at Select Therapy have extensive training and experience in treating people with TMJ dysfunction and TMD. Whether this is a new issue or you have had jaw issues for 20+ years, we can help!
