Can a Physio Help with TMJ?
Our Physiotherapy team are highly experienced in treating Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD) which brings pain and dysfunction to the muscles and joints of the jaw.
Common symptoms include jaw pain, clicking or locking along with headaches, toothaches and other problems with your face and eating.
The diagnosis of TMJ disorders is often difficult due to the variety of different causes including:
Injuries to the jaw
Grinding and clenching of the teeth
Emotional or physical stress
Anatomical deformities of the teeth and jaw
Side effects of recent dental work
Jaw Physiotherapy is a specialised area of practice and Peter Vitale leads the jaw physio team coming from a place of care and experience.
