TMJ

Manual Therapy and Rehabilitation for Temporomandibular (TMJ) and Cervical Spine Disorders

Active Wellness has been trained in assessment and rehabilitation of TMJ and Cervical spine disorders through the Central Institute for Human Performance (CIHP*) in St. Louis, MO. We have adopted their diagnostic protocol and guidelines for head, neck, and jaw pain. Once the source of TMJ or Cervical spine pain has been identified, manual therapy techniques are used to relax, stretch, or mobilize the affected area. Many times treating TMJ or cervical spine issues require endurance exercises and motor control training for muscles of the jaw or neck. Here at Active Wellness we focus on coordinating care with current dental practitioners to employ all the best techniques and industry standard treatments. We would be more than happy to work with you and your dentist to resolve your TMJ or cervical spine disorders.
