Physiotherapy Treatment for TMJ
In this video, Registered Physiotherapist Suzie Foreman discusses how physiotherapy can be used to manage temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunctions. She summarizes the various management approaches that physiotherapists use when treating the TMJ including education, manual therapies, postural re-education, prescriptive exercise, acupuncture and Gunn IMS to name a few.
TMJ conditions that can be treated effectively using physiotherapy include:
- Jaw pain
- Jaw stiffness
- Clicking, popping or locking of the jaw
- Headaches stemming from the jaw
- Fascial pain caused by the TMJ
