Welcome to HeadWorks Physiotherapy, where we help you overcome face and jaw pain.
At HeadWorks Physiotherapy, we focus on the treatment of Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD), orofacial and craniofacial pain. Our specialist, Sharon Farquharson, successfully completed the certification process offered by the Physical Therapy Board of Craniofacial and Cervical Therapeutics (PTBCCT) to become a Certified Cervical and Temporomandibular Therapist (CCTT). At the moment, there are only eight CCTTs in Canada, three of whom, including Sharon, are in Vancouver, BC.
In addition, Sharon is also a certified Buteyko Breathing Instructor as well as a certified Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist.
TMDs are problems such as pain or reduced movement which affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), commonly known as the jaw joint.
Craniofacial pain is an overlapping topic which includes pain perceived in the head, face, and related structures, sometimes including neck pain.
Some symptoms of TMD, orofacial and craniofacial pain include:
- Face pain
- Neck pain
- Jaw pain
- TMJ clicking
- Locking jaw or limited jaw movement
If you experience any of the above symptoms, we can help you find relief at HeadWorks Physiotherapy now located at BC-ICE. Please visit www.headworksphysio.com for more information.
