TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular Joint disorders or TMJ Disorders associated with the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, can result in feelings of pain in the ear, face, head, and neck. TMJ dysfunction often leads to inability to open the mouth widely without pain, for instance, when yawning. Pain commonly occurs when attempting to eat hard or chewy foods such as steak or gum. 

At Pouzol Physical Therapy, we evaluate and perform a variety of treatment approaches aimed at restoration of pain-free function. Treatment can include: postural corrections, modalities, manual therapy, diet modification, positive stress recommendations, and education to help maintain the resting position of the jaw. Conservative treatment is quite successful and symptoms often resolve in a minimal amount of treatments.

"I highly recommend Teri Carr, PT. She is an extraordinary physical therapist and care giver. Her years of experience and constant continued learning make her an absolute expert. She is such a caring person and very effective. She works with her patients to find a plan that will work for them. She focuses on pelvic floor issues – including nerves in the pelvis. She is the only expert listed for the state of Maine for pudendal neuralgia. I am so lucky to have her as my therapist.

The staff here is also excellent. Everyone is upbeat and helpful, from the owner (Doug) to the support staff (Katie). I’ll never go anywhere else for physical therapy! "

"Teri Carr and the crew at Pouzol's Physical Therapy have been extremely helpful with dealing with my health issues. The Pelvic Floor therapy for my abdominal pain has increased my quality of life twofold and when I had back issues last year Teri helped me with pre and post surgery pain and recovery. The atmosphere there is a place of healing and the people are all very friendly and I consider them as friends. I would recommend them to everyone and come to think of it I have. "
