TMJ is a common term used to describe pain in your chewing muscles and inflammation in your jaw joint. This disorder and resultant dysfunction will result in significant pain. In addition, you will generally experience clicking, popping or grating.
Common Causes of TMJ:
Physical therapy can help the symptoms of TMJ pain by using techniques to stimulate muscle relaxation and by increasing the range of motion in the joint. While working closely with your dentist or physician, Advanced Physical Therapy will customize a plan that will get your jaw and neck moving safely and provide TMJ pain relief. Even if you have not had success with other TMJ pain relief solutions, this program is for you.
Our TMJ pain relief solution is typically covered by your health insurance. We participate with most insurance plans and accept personal injury protection auto insurance and attorney letters of protection. The cost of each session varies depending on your insurance plan. If you are uninsured or have a high deductible insurance plan, we have affordable payment plans for as low as $25 per week.
Significant decrease in TMJ pain may be noticeable in as little as 1-3 treatment sessions, especially if your pain started in the last few weeks. More chronic and severe conditions may take 6-12 visits for total TMJ pain relief and normal jaw movement.
