JAW PAIN TMJ REHAB

Fixio has experts in TMJ pain who work extensively with jaw specialists on the Northern Beaches. Whether you need relief and rehab after surgery or to try and prevent it, let’s get your jaw back!

Jaw Pain (TMJ)

Living with jaw pain or a temperomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is a real pain! Jaw pain is a very common problem. Approx. 70% of the population will experience jaw pain in their lives. It can affect all aspects of life, even so far as eating, speaking and sleeping.

At Fixio, we have 2 experts in TMJ disorders who have built up relationships with local jaw specialists to ensure that you can have continuous effective care from a team of experts.

WHAT YOU ARE FEELING

The symptoms that can present with TMJ jaw pain are:

  • Pain in your jaw or under your ear when eating or speaking
  • Clicks, grind sensations or popping of the jaw when opening and closing your mouth.
  • Suddenly locking or jamming of your jaw in a position (which can be quite painful!).
  • Inability to open your mouth wide or extreme discomfort when doing so.
  • Pain that also radiates to the neck, face, ears or back.
  • Headaches, dizziness or tinitus (ringing noise in the ears)
  • Irregular jaw movement
  • Pain or pressure behind the eyes

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, we recommend seeing your dentist, TMJ Physio or maxillofacial specialist. If the pain is more than a 2 out of 10, or has been present more than a few days, it’s time to consult the professionals.

What Happens at TMJ Physio?

At Fixio we take a staged approach to recovery from jaw pain. This starts with a comprehensive interview with you, followed by the physical examination in which we determine the source of your jaw pain.

We have a staged Recovery Plan. We work quickly over the first few weeks to reduce your symptoms as quickly as possible and then change our focus to addressing the underlying source of your TMJ symptoms. Jaw pain can be complex and mulitifactorial. Our physios are experts in addressing all of your concerns and you will leave with a much better understanding of your condition, what you should and shouldn’t do and an understanding of what you need to be doing to get your jaw feeling great again.

TREATMENT FOR JAW PAIN

There are a variety of different treatment techniques, knowing that every jaw and every human is different and responds differently!

Our treatment is tailored to you, with simple exercises and evident results. You will have a say in how quickly you get out of pain and how long term your results will be (we will always be recommending a complete, long term recovery!).

Jaeme and Dan are top-notch physios! Their expertise and approachability made my experience exceptionally positive. They efficiently addressed my years-long neck and back pain with personalized care and clear guidance. The office facility is also impressively equipped. Highly recommend them for effective treatment in a comfortable setting.

Have just started with Dan following a nasty fall and fracture to shoulder. Feel very positive, Dan has explained every process along the way and I feel very comfortable with my treatment plan. The other members of the team are super friendly and always acknowledge me on arrival and make me feel welcome

I started seeing Hayden for a lower back injury with an inflamed disk (Things you do in the gym!!!). After only 8 weeks and some great planning by Hayden and the team I went from not being able to move to being back in the gym and back to doing what I love! I am lifting more now than I was before my injury and generally feeling great. The attention to detail and knowledge the team have is amazing and I could not be happier with the results. For me it has not just been a fix of my back but a foundational learning experience, teaching me how to move, lift and self heal when I need to. Hands down, these guys are THE BEST Physio team on the Northern Beaches!

Hayden did a great job fixing my back. I would highly recommend seeing him. I had severe lower back pain to the point where I was considering surgery. Hayden guided me through the ups and downs, with honesty and empathy, and applying the best up-to-date methods my back made a full recovery.

Been seeing Hayden for 6 months now and he’s guided me to fixing lower back and knee problems I’ve been having for years. He set out a program and what it would cost in the first consultation and has followed through, providing great knowledge and guidance along the way.

The road to recovery from jaw pain depends on the severity of symptoms and the length of time you have been suffering. At Fixio, our Recovery Plans go through different phases, depending on this severity.

Jaw pain is different from injuries to other parts of the body and this needs to be taken into account. Due to the constant use that jaws receive (ie eating and talking) there is little opportunity to rest. Hence the recovery does tend to be longer than shoulder or neck injuries. You will be in expert hands to guide you through the process.
