Jaw and Facial Pain
Temporomandibular joint “TMJ” disorders and facial pain are a result of an imbalance of the jaw and skull with the muscles that move the jaw and other nervous system components. TMJ disorders may have a gradual onset with no apparent cause or may be a result of a physical insult. A thorough medical history and physical evaluation by our physical therapy staff will be performed in order to determine the source of your pain.

We offer essential one on one treatment sessions where we consider the whole person, not just the symptom. Our objective is to identify and resolve the cause of each particular problem which guarantees a quick and effective recovery for the patient.
