TMD refers to pain, loss of function, or disordered movement of the jaw (TMJ). The TMJ has similar characteristics to other joints of the body like muscles, joints, ligaments, nerves, and tendons. These structures have the potential to become impaired and require treatment by a health professional, including physiotherapists.
TMD can affect anyone at any age and can often have debilitating effects of pain, stiffness, or loud noises if left untreated. At The Body Refinery we have trained physiotherapists that can confidently assess and manage a broad range of TMJ conditions. See below for a range of symptoms that can be experienced and ways we will assess your TMJ.
