TMJ Dysfunction Therapy

The craniofacial pain generators have much in common with other parts of the body with pain potentially coming from bones, joints, nerves, muscles, and other soft tissues.  Physical therapy for craniofacial and TMJ pain is highly specialized and it may be difficult to find PTs with training specific to this area.  Dr. Klein has had extensive training with Dr. Mariano Rocabado in the evaluation and treatment of these disorders and has worked in this area for the past several years.  She completed her Certification in Craniofacial pain with Dr. Rocabado in 2016 and focuses her ongoing training in the area of relieving pain in the upper body and spine.  Integrative Physical Therapy’s approach to craniofacial pain included an extensive and careful evaluation with development of a treatment plan in conjunction with your other health care providers.  The initial focus of care is on helping you understand what is contributing to you pain, what is the current pain science, and how to start lessening your pain.  Treatment is then progressed to improving your quality of life and returning you to activities and social events that you love.  Physical Therapy is an integral part of the team that treats craniofacial and TMJ pain.  Integrative Physical Therapy works closely with your doctors, dentists, surgeons, and other health care professionals to ensure the best care possible.
