TMJ Therapy at Sol Physical Therapy: Relieve Jaw Pain and Restore Function

Specialized Care for Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

Sol Physical Therapy offers expert TMJ therapy to help individuals suffering from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Our dedicated team of therapists provides personalized care to alleviate pain, improve jaw function, and enhance the quality of life for those affected by TMJ issues.

What is TMJ Therapy?

TMJ therapy focuses on treating disorders of the temporomandibular joint, which connects the jawbone to the skull. These disorders can cause pain, dysfunction, and discomfort in the jaw, face, neck, and shoulders. Our therapists use a combination of manual techniques, exercises, and education to address these symptoms and restore normal jaw function.

Conditions We Treat

  • Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD): Addressing pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and surrounding muscles.
  • Jaw Pain and Locking: Alleviating discomfort and resolving issues with jaw movement, including locking or clicking.
  • Bruxism: Managing symptoms related to teeth grinding or clenching, often associated with TMJ disorders.
  • Facial Pain: Reducing pain in the face, head, and neck related to TMJ dysfunction.
  • Headaches and Migraines: Treating headaches and migraines that stem from TMJ issues.

Our Approach

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation: We begin with a detailed assessment of the jaw, neck, and related structures to determine the cause and extent of TMJ dysfunction.
  2. Personalized Treatment Plan: Based on the evaluation, we develop an individualized therapy plan tailored to the patient’s specific needs and goals.
  3. Manual Therapy: Our therapists use hands-on techniques to reduce muscle tension, improve joint mobility, and alleviate pain in the jaw and surrounding areas.
  4. Therapeutic Exercises: We prescribe exercises to strengthen the jaw muscles, improve range of motion, and promote proper alignment and function.
  5. Pain Management: We employ various modalities, such as heat and cold therapy, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation, to manage pain and inflammation.
  6. Patient Education: We provide education on self-care techniques, including proper posture, relaxation exercises, and strategies to avoid habits that may exacerbate TMJ symptoms.

Debbie A Ortho

I have been to many different physical therapy places but of all the ones I have been to, I must say, SOL Physical Therapy is the best. All the therapists, techs and front office personnel are unbelievably friendly, knowledgeable and always willing to assist you and your questions. They never try and rush you through your therapy (and I have been places where that was definitely the case). I would recommend SOL to anyone that needs physical therapy, they are top notch!!

Aimee CHT

Sol Physical Therapy is such an incredible place to go for physical therapy. I have been going for over a year and have never once had a problem. Everyone from the front desk staff, to the techs, to the physical therapists are extremely helpful, care about the patients, and will do whatever is needed to support you as the patient.

Tali B – Pediatric

We brought our 4 month old in to see AJ for torticollis. I am beyond happy we found this place as AJ was AMAZING with our son. He was personable and explanatory with everything and our son smiled so much during our visit while he was checking out his range of motion and doing stretches. We have upcoming appointments and though he is booked out a good month in advance it is WORTH the wait ten fold ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sarah G – Ortho OT CHT

I have had the pleasure of seeing Stephanie L, Dan, Rachel, and Joe at the Fort Lowell location. They are all extremely knowledgeable and know how to make the experience fun, even when you are in pain. I would (and have) highly recommend them to anyone who needs PT or OT. Kailey at the front desk is always very kind and willing to help as well.

Nick T – Pediatric

We took our daughter here to get evaluated for her torticollis. The staff was very friendly and helped us get set up with a few appointments at once. Our physical therapist AJ was very informative and was gentle with our baby. Definitely looking forward to coming back for future appointments.

D.A. Pelvic Floor, general

D Val – Vestibular

The BEST! Philip is my Vestibular/Physical therapist. I have been diagnosed with bilateral, Superior Canal Dehiscence. Migraines, balance problems, hearing loss, the whole 9 yards. After a procedure to correct one side (done at UCLA), I had to find a “VRT”. My husband and I absolutely love the results and improvements in my daily life. Thank you Philip, Patrick, Jessie, Jessa, A.J, Matt and Sharon, for the help you all provide to your patients!!

– D. Val (via Google Reviews)

Barbara S – General

We picked this physical therapy business randomly as it was close to home and they take my insurance. As it turned out, we were very pleased. The staff was very efficient and friendly. The thing that pleased me most was that they asked how things went since the last session. Then based on what I said, they tailored the day’s exercises.
