Temporomandibular Disorders

Temporomandibular disorders, commonly known as TMD, is a collective term referring to a group of conditions that affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and the surrounding muscles. This complex joint is responsible for the movement of your jaw, allowing you to speak, eat, and perform various facial expressions. When something goes wrong with the TMJ, it can lead to a range of painful and debilitating symptoms. 

Kirstin, our Senior Physiotherapist, has completed additional training in treating TMD, and has shared this knowledge with the rest of the team during their ongoing Professional Development sessions. Each of our physiotherapists will use their additional training and expertise to identify the contributing factors of your jaw pain to treat it accordingly.

Some of the treatment options commonly employed by Queensland Physiotherapy in treating TMD include:

  • Exercises around the jaw and neck
  • Core and postural correction exercises
  • Joint mobilisations
  • Muscular retraining
  • Massage
  • Dry Needling
  • Education
