Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
What is TMD?
TMD is characterized by jaw pain, restricted or excessive motion in the temporomandibular joint and tightness in the surrounding muscles. There are many causes of TMD including injury, arthritis or other medical conditions. People affected by TMD often experience pain with chewing and talking, and may report disrupted sleep due to jaw clenching and pain.

What is Dry Needling?
Functional Dry Needling® (FDN) involves inserting a tiny monofilament needle in a muscle or muscles in order to release shortened bands and decrease trigger point activity. This can help resolve pain and muscle tension, and will promote healing. This is not traditional Chinese Acupuncture, but is instead a medical treatment that relies on a medical diagnosis to be effective.
How many sessions are needed to be effective?
Typically positive results are apparent within 2-4 treatment sessions but can vary depending on the cause and duration of the symptoms. The overall health of the patient can contribute as well. Significant differences can be noted in just one session.
What conditions are treated with dry needling?
Dry needling is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, and even injury prevention. Dry needling is an included technique at no extra cost in all physical therapy sessions if approved by patient.
