How Denver Physical Therapists Can Treat TMJ Disorders


Many different issues surround TMJ disorders including pain in the jaw, misaligned bite, persistent jaw clenching, or even teeth grinding.

Your physical therapist in Denver can recommend a treatment plan to help ease some of the tension in the muscles and pain associated with your disorder. If untreated, they cause major headaches, pain in the jaw or ear, aching on the sides of your face, jaw locking or clicking, or grinding of the teeth.

Physical therapy in Denver treats this disorder through the use of manual therapy, trigger point dry needling, exercises specific to your ailment, and posture exercises designed to improve your condition by retraining your muscles over time.
 
Contact your Denver PT professionals to address the pain associated with TMJ disorders and develop a treatment plan specific to your needs.
