Chew in Peace with our Jaw Pain Treatments

At More Than Physio, our specialist Clinic – Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre has been specifically established to deliver an effective physiotherapy approach for the treatment of jaw and face pain suffers living throughout Melbourne’s South East and beyond. Often related to stress the clenching and grinding of the jaw and teeth (also known as bruxing) can be a common cause of pain that affects the muscles and joints surrounding the mandible (jaw bone). Conditions related to these symptoms are called TMD or TMJ Disorder and can affect general face and neck pain as well as various types of headaches if occurring over a continued time period. Thanks to our experienced physiotherapists with specialised training, we are able to offer treatments for the relief of debilitating jaw pain, ear pain, face pain and headaches to Armadale clients and other residents in the surrounding suburbs.

Help for Jaw Clicking and Face Pain

Not all physiotherapists are experienced treating TMJ disorder. The jaw and mouth is often thought to be the domain of the Dental profession alone and so many Physiotherapists shy away from working inside the mouth. Adding to the complexity, the mechanical relationship between the neck and jaw are not well understood, making this a particularly difficult and specialised area of treatment often requiring more than just a traditional Dental approach. More Than Physio – though our specialised on-site clinic – Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre – provides specialised Physiotherapy treatment for jaw pain, face pain and related symptoms to local areas of Armadale, Malvern, Prahran, South Yarra, Toorak, Caulfield, Bentleigh and McKinnon. Our Physiotherapists at the Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre have extensive experience managing TMJ (Jaw) conditions and face pain and work closely with other Medical and Dental Specialists when required. TMD is very prevalent – affecting 12 percent of the population and our Specialised Clinic enjoys referral from Dentists, GPs, Oral Medicine Specialists, Prosthodontists, Endodontists, Periodontists, ENTs, Rheumatologists, Neurologists and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Getting to the Cause of Jaw Clicking

Jaw Clicking Armadale and Malvern

Do you feel or hear your jaw click every time you open or close your mouth? This may be an indication of the protective disc between the mandible and the temporal bone of the skull being out of alignment and can lead to pain and dysfunction for Armadale, Malvern, and other clients living throughout the Eastern Suburbs. Thanks to our experienced Physiotherapists with specialised training in our specialised on-site clinic – Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre we can alleviate the pain associated with jaw clicking before it begins to progress to possible jaw locking or to affect other areas of the mouth and face.

Jaw Clicking or Locking

Jaw (TMJ) clicking is a sign that the small protective disc inside the jaw joint may be moving in an abnormal way or be located in the incorrect position relative to the condyle (end of the jaw bone) on top of which it should sit, requiring the condyle-disc complex to re-align or shift allow full opening to occur. This results in a distinct click.

The sensation that the jaw is about lock in a closed position or an increased difficulty opening the jaw with more resistance or a louder click indicates a worsening of the jaw mechanics and should be addressed with specialized physiotherapy. Jaw locking (when you cannot open more than 1-2 fingers width and usually the click not able to occur) should be seen to immediately to prevent more permanent damage. Locked jaws that persist for more than 2 weeks become increasingly more likely to remain locked. Specialized physiotherapy at our Specialist Clinic, Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre, is one of the best ways to unlock your jaw and address the mechanics that have lead to your jaw dysfunction in the first place.
