Jaw Pain / Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) Pain and Physiotherapy in Coomera
Is jaw pain something you or someone you know experiences? Things like painful clicking, aching or even locking up of the jaw? How about teeth grinding, headaches, or jaw pain when eating?
Did you know our physiotherapists are trained to treat some jaw pain presentations?
Physiotherapy assessments generally investigate not only the jaw, but also the neck and surrounding areas to determine what may be driving the issue at hand. Physiotherapy interventions for jaw pain can include education regarding stressors, postures and positions for self management, mobilisation of joints, soft tissue work, dry needling and take home exercises to relieve and help reduce risk of your jaw pain returning. We may at times also refer you to consult with a dentist or orthodontist in necessary cases.
