Pain at the Jaw (TMJ) Treatment

Pain at the jaw (TMJ) disorders can cause pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) - the joint where the lower jawbone meets the skull. This joint is what allows you to talk and chew. A variety of problems can cause pain at the jaw: an injury to the area, arthritis or grinding or clenching your teeth.

Symptoms of a TMJ Disorder      

  • Pain when opening or closing your mouth
  • Pain when chewing food
  • Trouble fully opening your mouth
  • Painful clicking and/or popping of the jaw

Our therapists provide:

  • A thorough evaluation to determine the cause of your TMJ problems
  • Education about TMJ anatomy and function
  • Exercises and manual techniques to improve function and decrease pain
  • Modalities such as an ultrasound or iontophoresis may also be used to decrease inflammation.
