Physical Therapy for TMJ and TMD

A physical therapist can develop a program for you that includes learning and practicing techniques for regaining normal jaw movement.

The focus of physical therapy for temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) is relaxation, stretching and releasing tight muscles and scar tissue. Physical therapy is an especially important part of recovery from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) joint surgery, as it helps minimize scar tissue formation and muscle tightness.
