TMJ - Temporo-Mandibular Joints

TMJ - Temporo-Mandibular Joints (also known as Jaw Pain)

My Physio is run by Karthik velu, a Specialist TMJ Physiotherapist based in Capalaba.

TMJ  also termed as TMD (Temporomandibular disorder) means pain within the TMJ and surrounding musculoskeletal structures. It is estimated that approximately 20-30% of the general population are affected by TMJ to some degree.  At My Physio, we are dedicated to providing excellence in the management of Temporomandibular disorders.  Our  Physiotherapists are members of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA).

What are My treatment options for TMJ Disorder at My Physio?

  • Manual therapy : We found manual therapy far more effective in treating TMJ issues. It focuses on restoring and improving your musculoskeletal system with hands-on treatment. The treatment methods within manual therapy include joint mobilisations, oscillations, gentle adjustments,  neural glides, and soft tissue techniques.
  • Exercise Therapy Several types of exercises are very effective including specific jaw strengthening exercises, jaw stretching exercises, postural exercises, and general fitness exercises.
  • Acupuncture:   Penetrating a small needle through the skin and underlying tissue to affect changes in physiology. Using this modality we can treat musculoskeletal disorders, pain and movement dysfunctions involving the TMJ.
