AQUA Physical Therapy
Are you suffering from pain or tenderness in the face or jaw area when you chew, speak, or open your mouth wide? Do you hear clicking, grating, or popping sounds when opening or closing your mouth? Does your jaw ever get stuck in an opened or closed position? These are just a few symptoms that can be associated with temporomandibular disorder (TMD), which is a condition that affects the jaw joints located directly in front of your ear canal. Other symptoms may include: dizziness, ringing in the ears, earaches, and headaches. Injury to the jaw, or the muscles of the head and neck (whiplash) can cause TMD. Stress, teeth clenching, and arthritis in the joint itself could be other causative factors. There are many other symptoms that can mimic the symptoms of TMD and a thorough history and physical examination by your dentist can assist in determining the origin of your symptoms.

The physical therapists at Aquahab Physical Therapy are highly skilled in the treatment for TMD and will work closely with your dentist to achieve the best possible outcome for managing your symptoms. The therapists at Aquahab will identify any musculoskeletal component contributing to your pain by incorporating manual techniques, postural education, and other modalities to treat your symptoms. Physical Therapy treatment can help resolve or significantly lessen the pain.
