One common reason for TMJ pain and treatment in Ada, MI

Our team knows that you may have no idea how your TMJ pain started. We also know that you may be in the dark as to how physical therapy can treat this form of pain.

Your temporomandibular joint is what most of us refer to as the hinge of our jaw. The movement of this joint is complex, and it’s constantly in use every day since it allows you to do things like chew food and talk. Our team can tell you that there are a variety of muscles involved in the movement of your temporomandibular joint, and one of these muscle groups is your neck muscles. Your neck muscles can be abnormally shortened or lengthened from poor neck posture, and this may, in turn, pull your temporomandibular joint out of alignment. This misalignment of your joint is one of the reasons you may be experiencing pain.

Our team may be able to help you fight back against the poor neck posture that’s causing your TMJ pain. We’ll do this by designing a therapy plan that may include therapies like:

  • Muscle strengthening exercises
  • Muscle stretches
  • Manual therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Thermotherapy

Using these and other therapies, our team may be able to improve your neck posture. We may also be able to help realign your temporomandibular joint and reduce your pain. However, the most important recovery step you can take is to begin your treatment as soon as possible.
