How can physical therapy help?

The physical therapists at Lonoke and ProMotion help people with TMD ease pain, regain normal jaw movement, and lessen daily stress on the jaw. We can help you restore the natural movement of your jaw and decrease your pain by using skilled manual therapy techniques to stretch the jaw in order to restore normal joint and muscle flexibility or break up scar tissues. Your physical therapist may also teach posture education as well as “low-load” exercises that don’t exert a lot of pressure on your TMJ, but can strengthen the muscles of the jaw and restore a more natural, pain-free motion.
