The jaw or temporomandibular joint (otherwise known as the TMJ) is a frequent and often debilitating source of pain. TMJ and facial pain can be caused by head and neck muscle tension, poor posture, dental problems, nerve damage or irritation, or the joint itself. Physiotherapists with an expertise in TMJ pain complete a detailed assessment of the head (jaw) and neck in order to determine the origin of the patient’s pain or dysfunction and work closely with dentists (orthodontists, surgeons, etc) in order to develop the best plan of care for the patient.

Conditions treated may include: myofascial pain, “locked jaw”, arthritis, etc.
