Jaw Pain

TMD (Temporal Mandibular Disorder) or jaw pain at the joint, effects many people.  It can have a profound effect on our eating habits, sleeping and the amount of social talking we do.  Not to mention having to suffer through the pain itself.

Jaw Pain Solutions

Many people see their dentist for TMD which is a good place to start.  Here at Health Motion we work closely with your dentist or physician to correct the root of the problem which is usually found in the muscles of the face and neck that control the jaw itself.  If these muscles are out of balance or not working in concert with each other, the jaw motion will not track smoothly or properly.  This misalignment results in torque, swelling and pain at the joint.  The repetitive motion of the jaw for chewing and speaking will quickly lead to TMD pain and issues.

TMD is very treatable and is usually handled quickly by our skilled therapists.  We can return you to a pain free life of eating, talking and sleeping without TMD.

To find out what we can do for you, have your dentist or physician refer you to Health Motion Physical Therapy, or come in for a free evaluation with one of our licensed physical therapists who will answer your questions and help you find a solution to your TMD.

When I came in I was having a hard time turning my neck which made it difficult when driving.  A huge thank you to Sally and her team for fixing me up!  My mobility has improved and I’m free of pain and able to do everything I could before this injury!
