PT for TMD – Physical Therapy for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
Are you suffering from jaw pain, difficulty chewing or swallowing, frequent headaches, pain behind the eyes or neck pain? You may have Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). TMD is a common condition that limits the natural function of the jaw, such as opening the mouth and chewing, and can cause pain and other problems. TMD can be caused by a number of factors – an injury to the jaw muscle or joint, mal-alignment of the jaw, teeth grinding, arthritis and/or stress. Fortunately, it can be treated…by physical therapy, of course!
