TMJ disorder (temporo mandibular joint/ jaw disorder) is a condition that is commonly overlooked and generally not comprehensively managed. This is due to a lack of awareness that effective specialised physiotherapy exists and is extremely effective.
Common Symptoms May Include:
Physiotherapists are experienced treating musculoskeletal problems. Jaw pain however is a condition that is not commonly treated by most physiotherapists as many of the jaw muscles need to be accessed via the mouth.
At Proactive Physiotherapy our physiotherapists are experienced in treating jaw pain with techniques both inside and outside the mouth. In addition they understand the complex link between the jaw and the head / neck and include this in the management of jaw pain conditions.
As physiotherapists with special interest in TMJ related conditions, neck pain and headaches, we understand that an effective approach to managing TMJ disorder and face pain must include a multi-faceted approach including:
Jaw pain responds very well to specialised physiotherapy treatment, with most people experiencing significant improvement within the first few treatments. Fix your jaw condition now. Contact the Proactive Physiotherapy Clinic today
At Proactive Physiotherapy we recognise that people still injure themselves, and are in pain, so we are still open for face-to-face consultations for the time being, In the interests of everybody's health we are trying to minimise these face to face treatments, so if your condition can be helped without face to face treatment we will offer you telehealth or phone consults.
For your safety, we have reduced physiotherapists hours to allow us to have only two physiotherapists and one receptionist in the clinic at any one time. We use screening questionnaires for everyone attending the clinic and have strict sanitising procedures in place.
For anyone that doesn't want to come into the clinic, our telehealth service, “Physio By Video” is up and running. Anybody who is interested in this service should contact us by email: email@example.com, or by phone on 40536222 and a physiotherapist can discuss how this works.
Reception will be attended between 830am and 5pm and Monday to Thursday and 830am to midday on Friday, or you can leave us a voice message at other times.
Thank you for your understanding. We wish you all safety and good health in the coming days and weeks.
Julie Faulks and the entire Proactive Physio team.
