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. An individualized treatment plan will then be developed with you. When necessary, your physio will contact your dentist and / or specialist to coordinate your treatment with their recommendations if needed.

TMD can have a huge impact on your ability to chew, laugh and talk. When such frequent, repetitive movements are painful it can leave you super irritable and agitated throughout your day.

  • Soft tissue release of the muscles surrounding the TMJ.
  • Manual stretches, mobilizations/manipulation of the jaw and neck joints.

SYMPTOMS OF TMJ / TMD Disorder

Here are some common symptoms and signs you may experience…
  • Pain in the face, jaw or teeth
  • 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.

My husband (big fan of hockey) found this physio by Googling and booked for Ian (His profile shows Ian used to be a physical therapy consultant to the Edmonton Oilers!). I had a major accident last year. I can walk on my own again without any devices because of Ian’s help and guidance. He is indeed honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, helpful, and has a good sense of humour. He sends me follow up emails to ensure that I don’t forget my training menu at home. I have never seen such a dedicated therapist in my life. The physio office is always really clean and all the receptionists are helpful. Thank you.read more

Colleen Davies is the best! I put my back out, summer 2019 and tried everything for 3 weeks until I found out about Colleen and her magic IMS needles. I was walking again the next day😀. I have been back for 2 maintenance sessions since then and my back is great!I am looking forward to some relief with my "tennis elbow" next😅All the sporty, fun, crazy activities of youth catching up! Thank you 💛read more

I cannot say enough about Paul, Lauren and the entire crew at Broadmead Orthopaedic Physio! I found Paul 20 years ago when I had unsuccessfully tried 4 other physiotherapists, and my GP recommended Paul. Paul had me fixed after 3 sessions, when all others failed! His knowledge of the entire human body system is utterly thorough! More recently, Lauren treated me for severe vertigo, fixed completely in one session ! They are the best of the best !read more
