Our temporomandibular joint (TMJ) program focuses on musculoskeletal problems relating to the TMJ or jaw region. Symptoms can include pain when eating/chewing certain foods, neck pain and headache. Treatment generally consists of manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue and joint mobilization, therapeutic exercise to improve mobility and/or stability of the jaw as well as patient education in posture, food selection and home exercise. In some cases ultrasound / phonophoresis or electrical stimulation may be used.
"In the middle of recovering from rotator cuff surgery, COVID hit...and I continued to receive the exceptional, kind, healing PT virtually that I experienced at the clinic. Sean and his team never missed a step in getting me back to feeling like new. I know how committed Sean was to keeping clients like me from feeling the impact of shelter in place and I will be forever grateful. SPT in South Asheville is in a class of its own!"
