Cranio-Facial/TMJ Dysfunction and Pain
Our therapists provide specialized treatment models and CRAFTA (Craniofacial Therapy Academy) care which includes the assessment and treatment of the cranium (head) and the face with passive movements (movements executed by the therapist), nerve testing (sensory/motor), postural and adaptive pattern assessment . Application of specific cranial nerve neurodynamics (neural tension) is also applied to treat adverse tension, which can result in reducing nerve pain and dysfunction.
Treatment includes specialized manual techniques and exercises designed to treat chronic head, neck, jaw, and facial pain. Diagnoses commonly treated with these techniques include: atypical face, ear, and head pain; unexplained toothache; restricted jaw movement; head trauma; orofacial pain, and neuralgia; tension headaches; and migraines.
