Jaw pain can be caused by TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, or TMD. TMJ disorders are associated with pain in the jaw, around the ear, clicking or popping noises in the jaw when opening the mouth. A TMJ disorder can also result in frequent headaches and a sore neck.
Research indicates that soft tissue release and hands-on physiotherapy should be considered for TMJ disorders before surgery or night guards are prescribed. Many patients are able to discontinue their anti-inflammatory medications following physio and a home maintenance program.

My Physiotherapy Story
I would like to thank Kasra Mirhosseini for his work on my TMJ. I have noticed a big difference in movement and overall quality of life. I couldn’t open my mouth without extreme pain or eat hard foods and now I can.
I would highly recommend Kasra to anyone suffering from TMJ issues.
I appreciate his level of care and professionalism.
