Fall is officially here! New TMJ patients welcome!
Fall is about pumpkin everything (pumpkin spice lattes?), cozy sweaters, and apples. But... if the thought of biting into an apple makes you grab your jaw and wince - you might need TMJ treatment!
Who can help me with my jaw pain?
Beyond obtaining his Doctorate of Physical Therapy, our resident physiotherapist Brett Weiss has completed over 100 hours of continuing education in the area of TMJ disorder and orofacial pain. Having recently concluded his postdoctoral residency with Dr. Jeffrey Mannheimer, PT, PHD, PC, CCTT, Brett is highly skilled at examining, evaluating, and treating all forms of TMJ disorders, facial pain and cervicogenic headaches. He is an affiliate member of the American Academy of Orofacial Pain and participates in their mentorship program. He also partners with dentists and orofacial pain specialists to develop an integrative plan of care to promote optimal outcomes for patients.
Ready for relief?
Whether acute or chronic, Brett can help you reduce the headaches, improve the mobility and restore the function of your jaw to get you back to a pain-free life.
So gratefall you dropped by! A big hug from all of us at Russell Hill to all of you out there.
Stay safe and healthy, and don't to forget carve out some you time now and then.
What is TMJ?
The Temporomandibular Joints connect your mandible (lower jaw) to your skull. You have one on each side and they are the most frequently used joints in the body (think about it - you move your jaw every time you eat and every time you speak... and those are two of our favourite things to do!). From a biomechanical point of view, they are also the most complex!
Movement as medicine... These hypopressive excersises help!
