Jaw joint

Treatment done using the Kalteborn/Evjenth approach

Jaw joint treatment

Jaw joint treatment

The temporomandibular (jaw) joint, like every other joint in the body, has two articular surfaces and an articular disc between those surfaces (e.g., the meniscus in the knee). The joint cartilage can deteriorate (through degenerative changes like arthrosis), the muscles around the joint become stiff, the jaw’s range of motion can become limited or deviated to the side, the jaw can pop – though all these issues can be treated by a knowledgeable physical therapist. After the issue is identified, the treatment is carried out with the use of the Kalteborn/Evjenth approach on a specific area, on the muscles on the inner or outer side of the mouth, or on the jaw joint itself from the inside of the mouth.
