Physiotherapy for jaw pain

At Magnus you can also come to us for complaints of the jaw joint. These are grouped under the name Temporo-Mandibular Dysfunctions (TMD) or Costen's syndrome and refer to a disorder in the functioning of the jaw joint. The jaw joint consists of an upper and lower jaw, which make a hinged movement. This hinge movement is supported by a disc present in the joint. Overloading or trauma to this joint is caused by teeth grinding, stress, clenching, jaw surgery or other causes. This can cause a malfunction that can cause a lot of tension around the jaw joint. Clicking noises may occur and the mouth opening may be restricted. Specialised physiotherapy can help to treat the causes. Our jaw physiotherapists will relax the muscles of the chewing system, improve mouth opening and normalise the coordination of mouth movements.
