Reduce jaw pain and restore your smile with TMJ treatment

We understand the complexity of TMD, which can have a variety of causes including trauma, stress, overuse, and systemic disease, and our goal is to help you achieve long-term relief. Through detailed assessments, personalized treatment plans, and education around the biomechanics of your jaw, we can help you reduce pain, restore function, and get back to living life with a healthy smile.

TMJ Physiotherapy in Vancouver

Our Physiotherapists have specialized training in the treatment of Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD). This includes complex disorders that affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connecting the jawbone to the skull.

A variety of factors can cause TMD such as trauma, stress, overuse, and systemic disease. Dysfunction in the TMJ can affect vital functions such as your ability to eat, talk, smile, yawn, and breathe. A detailed assessment will identify any non-functional habits you may have with the jaw, as well as mobility and strength in the jaw and neck. When appropriate, an intra-oral assessment will be performed to determine how the TMJ moves and assess muscular tone and function.

Treatment will be tailored to the individual, though all clients can expect to receive education around their symptoms and the biomechanics of the jaw. Other treatments might include soft tissue release, joint mobilization, and therapeutic exercise.

Common conditions treated include:
  • TMJ disc displacements 
  • Arthralgia (joint pain) 
  • Muscle and myofascial pain 
  • Headaches attributed to TMD
