TMJ Physio Brisbane
What is TMJ?
TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint, which is in your jaw. Often, if this joint has been injured or affected in some way, this results in temporomandibular dysfunction or jaw pain. Jaw pain is caused by a variety of factors including dental treatments, accidents and injury.
Commonly, jaw pain symptoms include the feeling of popping, crunching, grating or clicking in your jaw, the jaw becoming locked, or difficulty opening and closing your mouth. You may also experience a toothache (where you have no underlying tooth problems), an earache (where you have no underlying ear problems), tinnitus, ear-popping, or face and eye pain.
This type of pain can make it hard to function in day to day life, so it’s important to have it looked at before the problem worsens. Additionally, it’s common to experience headaches with jaw pain, which can make what you’re feeling worse. The TMJ physiotherapists at All Care Physio are able to treat both jaw pain and headaches in conjunction for long-term relief.
How does TMJ physio treat jaw pain?
At All Care Physiotherapy, our specialised physiotherapists use a variety of treatment methods to treat jaw pain.
This also includes a thorough assessment of the neck and back to see if any issues here are contributing to your pain.
In those cases, comprehensive treatment of all the affected areas of your body eliminates the pain for good.
As part of your treatment plan, we will help you to retrain your jaw muscles to be able to eat, drink, speak, and generally open and close the mouth with ease.
