Temporomandibular (TMJ) Pain Relief

Have you suffered with painful chewing, clicking while opening your jaw, or excessive jaw pain?

Many Americans suffer from jaw pain or TMJ disorders with no answers for treatment.

It is estimated that 75% of the U.S. population have experienced signs or symptoms associated with disorders involving the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), also called Temporal Mandibular Disorder (TMD). TMJ disorders can be the main contributor to jaw pain, painful jaw clicking, headaches and much more.

TMJ Symptoms

  • Clicking, popping or grating sounds
  • Limited opening or closing of jaw
  • Pain when chewing
  • Tooth pain
  • Earaches
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Facial pain or numbness
  • Neck or throat pain

There are many different treatment options for TMJ disorders, such as orthotic splinting, medications, and surgery. These treatments can provide relief; however, many times they only provide a short term fix for the root cause of the problem. Physical Therapy is well recognized as an effective and conservative treatment for Temporomandibular joint disorders and jaw pain.

How can Physical Therapy help:

  • PT can improve the TMJ mobility to improve the quality and ease of jaw motion.
  • PT can improve jaw strength, stability and control to reduce TMJ clicking and popping.
  • PT can improve the muscle flexibility surrounding the TMJ to reduce pain and tension while eating.
  • PT can teach you exercises to maintain TMJ mobility and stability in order to reduce pain and improve your jaw function at home.

Goodlife Physical Therapy and FTR are proud to feature trained physical therapists who are ready to help restore your jaw function and reduce your pain.
