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.
"strongKudos to physical therapistsstrongWith the city coming out of bankruptcy, the San Joaquin Delta polluted by hyacinth, and national news reporting doom and gloom, the last place I expected to find a welcome change of pace was Central Valley Physical Therapy especially considering the assurance that my success there depended on the degree to which I would let them hurt meThroughout 34 sessions of literally pushing me through scar tissue after total knee replacement in May, the entire staff at Central Valley Therapy in Stockton was remarkably competent and caring Not once did I sit in the waiting room more than five minutes Not once did I find my therapist and his many assistants anything but attentive and engaging Not once did I dread going back for moreHopefully, Central Valley Therapy staff goes home with a sense of professional accomplishment, feeling appreciated Their services strengthen weak muscles, provide stability to wobbly legs and lift the spirits of patrons in need Stockton is fortunate to be home to a business so welcoming and worthwhile"
