The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) consist of joints connecting the jawbone to the skull, which is in front of the earlobe and functions as a unique joint. The most frequently used joint in the body is the TMJ, as a result it is at a higher risk of causing pain and stress.


Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD) is a medical condition that can be caused by a variety of muscle and joint issues. When the jaw moves out of place, it can cause pressure on sensitive structures and muscles around the joint. This can lead to muscle stiffness and joint pain, affecting range of motion in the jaw.


The temporomandibular joint can be a complex area. At Balance, our physiotherapists take a multidisciplinary approach to treat any injury or distress to this joint.

We collaborate with your physician and dentist to ensure the best treatment possible to resolve your TMJ/TMD problems. Our goal is to restore function in the joints and the subsequent muscles associated with it, thus, preventing further injury.

Come in for an assessment to learn more about your particular pain and the reasons causing the TMJ to be in discomfort.
