PROCare Therapists get Advanced Training in Treating TMJ-Dysfunction

PROCare Physical Therapy’s physical therapists Brian Bedalov, MSPT and Abigail Jurinek, DPT recently received advanced training in TMJ Dysfunction Rocabado Therapy through UW-Milwaukee’s College of Health Sciences Program.

TMJ Dysfunction symptions include: Neck or facial pain or stiffness, headaches, “clicking” near the jawline, and limited ability to yawn, talk, or chew. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. TMJ disorders can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. The exact cause of a person’s TMJ disorder is often difficult to determine. This pain may be due to a combination of problems, such as arthritis or jaw injury. Some people who have jaw pain also tend to clench or grind their teeth, complicating this issue.

The training that PROCare Physical Therapists Abigail and Brian received, Rocabado  Therapy, was developed by Dr. Rocabado, a world reknown doctor who has developed highly successful techniques for treating TMJ Dysfunction.

The Rocabado manual therapy techniques that Abigail and Brian learned may also be used in conjunction with  triggerpoint dry needling therapy techniques to ensure the fastest rate of recovery.
