TMJ DYSFUNCTION

Temporomandibular dysfunction typically stems from the muscles problems surrounding or the disc within the temporomandibular joint. Often correction comes from improving correcting disc alignment or the function of the muscles of mastication (chewing muscles).

 

This can be done with physical therapy centered around manual therapy maneuvers, corrective exercises, and postural awareness. Because everyone's experience with TMJ dysfunction is unique, it's best to undergo a comprehensive physical therapy evaluation with subsequent treatment in order to talk, chew, sing, and sleep without pain or dysfunction.
