This type of therapy is used to treat dysfunction of the TMJ, which connects the lower jaw with the skull. Problems with the TMJ can cause head and neck pain, resulting in chronic headaches, or pain in the face, ears, or jaw. The jaw can become locked in a position that makes it difficult to open and patients can experience difficulty biting or chewing. TMJ specialists utilize TMJ therapy to focus on the evaluation and treatment of disorders of this joint.

Physical therapy can provide relief for patients when other methods of treating their headaches, like over the counter or prescription medication, do not improve their symptoms. While there is no complete cure for chronic headaches, TMJ specialists can use physical therapy to provide significant relief from symptoms.

My experience with Twin Boro after my total knee replacement has been exceptional. They made all my appointments to fit into my schedule, explained all my exercises to me and made me feel very confident that I would be taken care of.”

"I went to the Westwood Office for therapy on my foot...I found everyone from office to therapists to be pleasant, attentive, knowledgeable, and the facility is run like a well-oiled machine! I especially want to thank Mark for my foot feeling better than it has in 7 years! I will definitely recommend Twin Boro Westwood to any one of my friends! Thanks again to all the staff!"

“My sincere thanks to you and your staff for a very interesting and informative presentation you conducted for the seniors of Clark. Our members were very pleased with the information, and especially the exercises which many said they would use. We would certainly be glad to have you return again and look forward to another exciting presentation.”

"The therapists and staff at the Twin Boro in North Brunswick truly place their patients first. My six month experience at this office was outstanding. Coming to Twinboro, I was unsure of my diagnosis, but with the help and dedication of my therapist Ivana, answers were found and exercises were set in place to treat my symptoms. Ivana made coming to therapy an enjoyable experience with her attention to detail, compassion, and sociability. It was evident through the environment Ivana created for that she listens to her patients and makes decisions with the best interest of the patient in mind. If you need to attend physical therapy and are in the area, Twin Boro in North Brunswick is the right choice!"
