TEMPEROMANDIBULAR JOINT DYSFUNCTION
& CERVICOGENIC HEADACHES
The jaw (TMJ) can cause problems for many people, presenting with or without pain and associated impact on day to day activities. Additionally, we work with clients experiencing headaches and postural malalignment related to their neck and jaw.
Whether supporting clients pre and post operatively, or for conservative (non-surgical) management, physiotherapy can contribute to pain reduction and restoration of function through soft tissue techniques, home management strategies, acupuncture and postural re-education.
Hypermobility and hypermobility spectrum conditions (such as Ehlers Danlos) can cause challenges in day to day as well as athletic activities.
Performance Pro work alongside a team of other healthcare professionals in managing client experiences associated with hypermobility, supporting with pain management, injury risk reduction, postural and ergonomics assessments, and tailored training plans.
