Physical Therapy for Jaw Pain & TMJ
Jaw Pain & TMJ Disorders
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders are a group of debilitating conditions that cause pain and “clicking” in the jaw. TMJ symptoms and jaw pain can make it difficult to eat, yawn, or even speak in severe cases. Working with a Physical Therapist that has been trained to treat jaw pain and TMJ pain, like those at Health Loft in Chicago, makes it possible to improve temporomandibular joint dysfunction and provide TMJ pain relief.
Jaw Pain & TMJ Pain Relief with Health Loft Physical Therapy
Health Loft Physical Therapists take the time to get to know you and create a personalized plan to provide jaw pain relief. Before beginning treatment, your PT will seek to understand how your symptoms began – common sources include poor posture, stress, biting or chewing on hard objects, or an injury to the jaw.
Your doctor will then examine factors that are commonly involved in causing jaw pain such as the mobility and strength of your jaw, neck, and shoulders, as well as your posture in various positions. Simply treating your jaw would not provide you with lasting pain relief, so your therapist will take all of these areas into account when creating a customized treatment plan to achieve pain relief from your jaw condition.
