Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction is a common condition that affects many people worldwide. The TMJ connects the jawbone to the skull, and when it becomes damaged or inflamed, it can cause various painful symptoms, including difficulty speaking, chewing, ear pain, headaches, and jaw pain. Fortunately, Core Physio provides effective treatment options to manage the symptoms of TMJ dysfunction and improve patients’ quality of life.
At Core Physio, our team of experienced Physiotherapists conducts a comprehensive assessment to accurately diagnose TMJ dysfunction. The assessment includes physical examination, X-rays, and other diagnostic tests to understand the condition’s root cause. We develop a personalized treatment plan that caters to each patient’s unique needs.
Our Physiotherapy treatment options for TMJ dysfunction include manual therapy, jaw exercises, heat and cold therapy, and lifestyle modifications. Manual therapy entails hands-on manipulation and massage to relieve muscle tension and improve joint mobility, which can reduce stiffness and pain in the TMJ. Jaw exercises help to strengthen jaw muscles and improve jaw mobility. Heat and cold therapy can reduce inflammation and relieve pain when applied to the affected area. Lifestyle modifications such as avoiding clenching or grinding teeth can reduce the strain on the TMJ.
Core Physio is committed to helping patients achieve optimal health and wellness. If you are experiencing symptoms of TMJ dysfunction, we can provide effective treatment to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Schedule a consultation with our experienced Physiotherapists today and take the first step towards a pain-free life.
