Specialist TMJ Physiotherapy
At Sutherland Shire Physiotherapy Centre in Sydney we specialise in assessment and treatment of the Temporomandibular joint or as it's commonly referred to; the TMJ. We have specialist TMJ Physiotherapists who are specifically trained in treating and managing conditions of the head and neck.
Jaw pain is a very common problem. The condition is sometimes known as TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder) or TMJ Disorder (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). Around 70% of the population may experience some jaw symptoms from time to time. These symptoms can range from mild discomfort to severe pain with jaw restriction and locking. Pain may be felt in the jaw joint, jaw bone, teeth, jaw muscles, temple region, ears and neck. This condition can also cause headaches, dizziness and intermittent deafness. TMD can have a devastating effect on your life, interfering with eating, laughing, yawning and even talking.
A TMJ specialist physio is a physiotherapist with experience in treating any conditions related to the jaw including jaw pain, clicking, locking or difficulty eating. At Sutherland Shire Physiotherapy Centre in Sydney our TMJ specialist physio's will assess and diagnose your problem along with providing a tailored treatment approach.
Jaw Physiotherapy can help to reduce pain, improve function and empower individuals with the tools to manage their condition.
