TMJ Mobilization

TMJ Mobilization is a manual therapy technique focusing on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), a hinge connecting your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. It involves applying a gentle, non-invasive force to the joint, intending to reduce pain and improve function.

The technique finds its relevance in managing temporomandibular disorders (TMDs), conditions causing pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and muscles controlling jaw movement. The mobilization aims at improving the mobility of the TMJ, reducing muscle tension, and enhancing oral opening capacity.

Informed by evidence-based practice, TMJ Mobilization has been observed to yield positive therapeutic outcomes. The technique employs passive movements that can be either oscillatory or sustained depending on individual patient requirements. Its application ranges from patients with bruxism to those with post-surgical stiffness.

Apart from clinical effectiveness, TMJ Mobilization also emphasizes patient comfort, safety, and individualized care approach. The treatment’s success heavily relies on accurate assessment, precise application, and appropriate follow-up exercises.
