Treatment For Jaw Pain

Jaw pain west rydeJaw pain. It’s so common that it even has a name: TMJD, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction. ANZAOMS, the Australian and New Zealand Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, claims that about four people in every 10 will shows signs of it at some point in their lives.

Symptoms of jaw pain

It is also extremely uncomfortable. According to Healthdirect, a national government-owned not-for-profit organisation, the symptoms include:

  • discomfort or pain in the jaw—especially when eating
  • aching pain in front of the ear, which may spread across the face
  • locking of the jaw, which may make it difficult to open or close your mouth
  • a clicking or grating noise when you open your mouth or chew
  • an uncomfortable or uneven bite.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jaw to your skull. Problems around the area can be caused by dental issues, osteoarthritis, stress, disease—such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia or gout—or even an injury.

Physiotherapy treatment for jaw pain

At Northern Districts Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic, our physiotherapists can help to manage the musculoskeletal causes of jaw pain. To counter it, we offer a gentle physio treatment that balances the movements of the bones, muscles and ligaments.

As part of our treatment, we look at the positions of the two bones that make up your jaw joint, check for any dysfunction of the muscles of the throat, and check the vertebra in your neck or spine. We also look for any dysfunction in the way your upper body muscles and joints are moving and observe the way the rest of your body moves, in case this is the root cause of your pain.

There really is no need to just grit your teeth and accept life with jaw pain. Pick up the phone and call Northern Districts Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic on 02 9874 8410 to book an appointment with one of our physiotherapists.
