Temporomandibular Joins (TMJ) are the joints on both sides of your head that connect your jaw to your skull. Since some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions, early detection and treatment are important.

  • Does your jaw ever click?
  • Do you have pain or soreness in your jaw, face, or neck?
  • Do you feel pain or fullness sensation in your ears?
  • Do you experience ear noise?
  • Do you clench your teeth at night?
  • Do you wake up with a headache in the morning?
  • Have you ever had a whiplash injury, blow to the chin, face, or head?
  • Are you missing any back teeth (this may cause a jaw misalignment)?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you may suffer from a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.

TMJ physical therapy may be the answer to your problem. Our highly qualified Physical Therapists have vast experience in treating and successfully resolving an array of different TMJ conditions.

Headaches

Physical therapy can be very helpful in treating headaches of musculoskeletal origin. Poor posture, diet, various food sensitivities, and lifestyle factors may play a role in the development of headaches. We have been very successful in treating severe, long-standing headaches, which are often misdiagnosed as migraines, but actually originate in fascia, muscles, and joints. It is best to utilize physical therapy intervention as a preventative measure before a full blown headache develops. However, certain physical therapy techniques can be used during a headache attack to help reduce the pain.

Our physical therapists have an extensive experience in treating the following headache types:

  • Tension Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Vestibular Migraines
  • Rebound Headaches
  • And many other types of headaches

Tinnitus

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ear(s), can originate from many sources: arthritis in the bony structures of the ear, trauma, ear wax build up, hearing loss and other conditions. Tinnitus can also be caused by muscle tension, or tightness in the shoulder, neck, and/or jaw muscles. In this case it can be effectively treated with physical therapy. Unfortunately, few people, including health care professionals, are aware of this musculoskeletal connection to tinnitus. By treating the underlying causes (such as poor posture, tight muscles and joints of the neck, shoulders and upper back), it is possible to stop the ringing in the ear.*
