We constantly use our jaws, breathing, talking, eating and facial expressions are not possible without it. Problems with the Temporomandibular Joints (TMJ) or jaw joints can lead to clicking, popping, grinding even headaches, ear ringing and upper neck pain.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or your dental practitioner has diagnosed you with it, a physiotherapist specially trained in TMJ or jaw dysfunction can help.
During the initial evaluation your physiotherapist will do a thorough physical examination including posture, cervical spine, jaw range of motion and other contributing factors. After this a treatment plan will be developed which will include a variety of techniques and exercises tailor made to you
