What to expect:


At O'Brien Physical Therapy and Wellness, we not only want to calm your symptoms but we want you to have long lasting results.  That is why we progress through three phases of care for treatment of TMD.

1.  Calm your symptoms, change your habits

2.  Restore pain-free mobility and improve symmetrical stability

3.  Return to normal function and diet

Our three phases will include a thorough history, an assessment and exam of your head, neck and jaw.  Treatment may include manual therapy, modification of lifestyle and habits and modalities such as ultrasound, dry needling, cupping, and IASTM.
