Conditions We Treat

Jaw & face pain

The Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) or jaw is a complex mechanical joint system which allows us to chew, speak, yawn and perform many other daily functions. Most people don’t realise that the jaw is intimately related with the neck, inner ear, teeth and base of the skull and works with these other structures to create normal movement patterns.

Common complaints we hear from TMJ patients are jaw pain, clicking, difficulty opening the mouth and painful chewing.

Research has shown that TMJ pain and dysfunction is common in clients who also have neck pain, thoracic pain, low back pain, headaches, fibromyalgia or who have been involved in whiplash injuries in the past.

At Wellers Hill and Woolloongabba Physiotherapy, we have experienced TMJ physiotherapists who can assess and treat the TMJ along with any other mechanical structures that may be involved. Our physiotherapists are trained to perform specialised release techniques and provide you with individual exercises to achieve normal TMJ motion and reduce pain.

Our reputation for success in the treatment of TMJ / Jaw pain has ensured that we are seen as the preferred physiotherapists by many medical and dental specialists in the Brisbane region.
