Pain can arise in the jaw and affect either the joint, muscles or neuromuscular structures of the jaw and face. Many patients develop headaches, clicking or pain as a result of a disorder of the jaw.
Physical Therapy is a primary intervention for jaw disorders which involves an assessment and a range of treatment techniques focused on decreasing inflammation and improving mobility and often stability in the jaw.
