Temporomandibular Joint Disorder or TMJ Disorder can be related to a range of problems from poor posture, chronic jaw clenching, and poor dental habits such as excessive gum chewing, to fracture or conditions such as lockjaw. Muscles around the jaw may spasm and affect your ability to open your mouth. Physical therapists help people with TMD ease pain, regain normal jaw movement, and lessen daily stress on the jaw.
Physical therapists utilize manual therapy, exercises, and modalities such a moist heat to relieve pain and help the muscles surrounding the jaw and neck work more optimally. Education will also be provided to assist patients to improve function and decrease pain outside of therapy as well.
I recently completed physical therapy at Med A Quest, and felt compelled to let you know how pleased I was with the care and attention I received.
The moment you enter the door, Jennifer makes you feel welcomed, the atmosphere is inviting, and I particularly liked that there are individual treatment rooms for the more “personal” phases of treatment.
Brittany, my therapist, was compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable. She supervised every exercise and continually asked about my comfort level. One of the best things Med A Quest offers is an APP that is sent to your email showing all of the exercises, with instructions, that you are asked to do in between your scheduled appointments.
I strongly recommend that if you are in need of professional/compassionate care – you call Med A Quest!
I discovered Med A Quest accidentally. I was looking for a physical therapist. When I called, their new office had not opened yet. When Med A Quest opened their doors, Med A Quest called me for my first appointment. I was one of the very first new patients at the new location in Egg Harbor Township. I am still at Med A Quest, attending three sessions a week. Even though this office is new, the physical therapists I have worked with are very skilled, knowledgeable, and professional. They know what they are doing. The support staff is impressive as well. Yes, I recommend Med A Quest if you are looking for a physical therapist.
