Our temporomandibular joint (TMJ) program focuses on musculoskeletal problems relating to the TMJ or jaw region. Symptoms can include pain when eating/chewing certain foods, neck pain and headache. Treatment generally consists of manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue and joint mobilization, therapeutic exercise to improve mobility and/or stability of the jaw as well as patient education in posture, food selection and home exercise. In some cases ultrasound / phonophoresis or electrical stimulation may be used.
"We had a player receive what appeared to be a concussion, which is a necessary part of playing sports these days Hes fine and back on the field, but the attention to which Megan Swanlund, ATC for Mission Prep HS looked after our player was unprecedented She was extremely thorough, always checking on our player throughout the game until the time we left the field She then proceeded to thoroughly explain the situation to the head coach as well as to the players fatherNot only was this impressive, but it stood heads and shoulders above what we would have experienced at other schools and remarkably much more than you would have seen if the tables were reversedSports is a vital part of a young mans curriculum and necessary for preparation for life after high school Having and seeing someone like Megan makes people think, stand up and take notice, and occasionally write lettersI was a Corpsman in the Navy, as was my wife, we know the difference between actual care and minimum compliance Thanks for taking care of my player and thanks for being an example to the community in a time that desperately needs examples"
