Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Pain and Dysfunction is a common condition affecting the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles. It may result in symptoms including pain or tenderness in the jaw, discomfort when eating or speaking, and trouble opening and closing the mouth.

The causes of TMJ might include arthritis or damage to the jaw joint, as well as dental issues, stress, teeth-clenching or -grinding, and dental difficulties.O Our therapists can accurately identify the underlying reason for your symptoms and provide a personalized therapy strategy to reduce your pain and enhance function.

A combination of manual treatment, exercise therapy, and lifestyle changes may be used to treat TMJ pain and dysfunction. Exercise therapy can assist to strengthen the muscles that support the jaw joint and enhance overall function while manual therapy can help to increase range of motion and reduce pain.

TMJ can also be managed with lifestyle changes like stress reduction techniques, reducing jaw clenching or grinding, and dietary changes. Make an appointment with one of our knowledgeable practitioners by getting in touch with Apollo Physical Therapy Clinic right away to start your journey to treatment from TMJ Pain and Dysfunction.
