TMJ Physiotherapy Barrie

By: Resolution Clinic  09-12-2011

The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) connects the mandible (your lower jaw bone) to your skull.  The Temporomandibular Joints (TMJ) are complex and include a boney attachment, an articular disk (located in between the bones in the TMJ), and numerous muscles which act to open and close the jaw.  Symmetry of movement is crucial for normal function of the TMJ.  This requires perfect disk alignment, as well as balanced flexibility, co-ordination and strength in all the TMJ muscles.  Clenching of your TMJ, arthritis, trauma, disk derangement or perforation, cervical spine dysfunction, bite abnormalities, muscle spasm, muscle weakness and poor posture can all lead to TMJ Dysfunction.

The night immediately after having my first IMS treatment, I was able to turn over in bed, which I had not been able to do for many years as the pain was too severe. For too many years to count, I suffered greatly from fibromyalgia .walking was difficult, particularly going up stairs. Don't waste time condiering IMS, just do it - you'll be glad you did.. I was then referred to Mandi Hayes and her Physiotherapy Clinic.
