TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Disorder

TMJ disorder is a major source of discomfort, pain and impairment for many people. A TMJ disorder occurs when the joints of the jaw and the chewing muscles do not work together correctly.

TMJ problems can occur as a result from:

  • Trauma
  • Teeth-grinding
  • Jaw-clenching
  • Stress
  • Misalignment of Teeth

Signs and symptoms may vary from:

  • Clicking and Popping of the Jaw
  • Jaw Pain
  • Abnormal Jaw Opening
  • Jaw Locking
  • Headache, Earache or Neck Ache

Each patient's treatment plan will be different based on the factors that have contributed to the onset of TMJ. After a comprehensive evaluation our registered physiotherapist at MapleCare Physiotherapy will not only educate you on your condition and underlying dysfunctions but also perform various appropriate treatments such as:

  • Exercise Programs
  • Self-management Information

  • Mobilization Techniques
