Personalized Treatment for Your TMJ / TMD

Your physiotherapist will assess the movement and alignment of your neck and jaw looking for tightness and imbalances in the muscles and restrictions in the joints.

When necessary, your physio will contact your dentist and / or specialist to coordinate your treatment with their recommendations if needed.

SYMPTOMS OF TMJ / TMD Disorder

  • Ear pain or fullness in the ears

What exactly is TMJ / TMD?

The jaw joints, also known as the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), are one of the most complex joints in our body. The joint connects the lower jaw to the skull in front of the ear and is involved in many functions including eating, speaking, facial expressions and more importantly breathing.

You have two temporo-mandibular joints, one on each side of your jaw, comprised of muscles, blood vessels, nerves and bones. Unfortunately this joint is a common area for reoccurring jaw pain.

TMD stands for temporomandibular dysfunction and is the more current term used to describe dysfunction with the temporomandibular joints.

I was referred to Paul Macintyre by an awesome ER Dr who also saw Paul. That in itself was good enough. In fact she gave me one of his appointments because it was pretty difficult to get in.Paul's experience is validated by not only his thorough and accredited knowledge of athletic physiology, but by also carrying around a pretty beaten up one of his own. More validation.Expect a friendly (like walking into someone's living room kinda feel) atmosphere and also the satisfaction that you're working with the most up to date equipment.Nothing but great things to say about this physiotherapist.Office staff are pretty cool too. There. 🏋️‍♀️read more

I went to Broadmead Physio after struggling to get back on the bike after a severe round of patella/knee pain. Jacob identified the root cause and worked with me to design a strengthening program to treat the underlying issue and not just the symptoms. I went from a fully locked up knee and limping around to back on the bike and being active withing a few weeks. Great service at Broadmead, and I highly recommend them.read more

This clinic and their staff are fantastic. I've been seeing Nicholas and Paul for the past year to treat upper shoulder and neck pain; they've helped me work through a nagging injury that's lasted well over 2 years. After bouncing around from clinic to clinic, finally found a solution. Thank you!read more
