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.

TMJ Symptoms

"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!"

“As a new patient I was a little nervous of not knowing what to expect from Twin Boro. But, since the first day of therapy treatment the staff made me feel like I was home. They really showed how much they care for their patients.”

The Bridgewater Location is excellent! Every single staff person is on point. From day one when I called to schedule my first appointment and throughout my treatment staff were helpful, professional, and overall a caring and compassionate team. Their professionalism and caring was evident not only in my treatment, also in the treatment of other patients. Being in a room with multiple treatment stations you cannot help but notice the care received by other patients. My ankle is 100% better and if I ever need PT again I would not hesitate to return. I was always a part of the therapy process, if I had questions they were answered. If I wanted to improve my ankle health at home I was provided clear instructions for exercises. Staff were skilled and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this location to family and friends.
