Jaw and Facial Pain


Are you experiencing a painful or clicking jaw, headache and/or facial pain?

One of the most common causes is a group of musculoskeletal conditions known as temporomandibular disorder (TMD)

The treatment of TMD is aimed at resolving pain and restoring functional balance to the jaw. Specific local treatment may include release of local muscles and mobilisation of local jaw and upper neck joints. In Addition, a rehabilitative home exercise program will be formed for each individual.

Accurate assessment of Jaw and Facial pain is crucial. Our trained physiotherapist can provide a comprehensive examination and diagnosis.

Our physiotherapist trained in Jaw (TMJ) and Facial Pain is Suzanne Jacobson.

Suzanne is located at our City and North Adelaide Clinic. No referral is necessary
