Jaw Pain

TMJ or TMD (Temporal Mandibular Disorder) is jaw pain at the joint.  Jaw Pain effects many people.  It can have a profound impact 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

Is TMJ the same thing as TMD?  TMJ is the abbreviation for temporomandibular joint, the hinge joint of the lower jaw and skull.  The medical community used to refer to pain at this joint as TMJ syndrome, which was often shortened to just TMJ.  To separate the problem from the joint itself, pain in the joint of the jaw is now referred to as temporomandibular disorder or TMD for short.

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.
