How Physiotherapy Can Help with Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD)

What Is It?

This patient handout from Physiotherapy Alberta College + Association, discusses temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD). With the use of images, the handout covers joint anatomy, common causes for dysfunction and treatment options including postural interventions, manual therapy, modalities, etc.

Our Thoughts:

Clearly intended as a patient and not a clinicians resource, this handout provides a good breakdown of the TMD basics. However the use of excellent sources, offers clinicians great direction if they’re looking for more specific information.
