TMJ Therapy

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is vital to your daily life, as it plays a crucial role in eating, chewing, and speaking. If you are experiencing temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD), this may manifest as pain or difficulty moving your jaw–all of which SOMA can handle.

I’m so glad I picked SOMA…

I’m so glad I picked SOMA for my physical therapy following an ankle injury. George has been so helpful when it comes to helping me understand my injury, prescribing helpful exercises/stretches and encouraging me during my treatment journey! You can tell both George and Costa really care about everyone they treat. Highly recommend!

I would highly recommend George and the practice in general…

I tore my ACL playing soccer. I started sessions with George pre and post op. He showed great support and compassion especially post op when pain was at its peak. He is very knowledgeable. He was excited to work with me and to get me better. I would highly recommend George and the practice in general; he is outstanding!!

They really care about their patients, excellent care…

They really care about their patients, excellent care! Without them I would not be able to walk again, after my ankle surgery.. I definitely recommend for anyone who needs PT go to Soma thank you so much guys!

Everybody there is warm and welcoming and extremely compassionate…

I was so lucky to find SOMA PT/OT after a terrible accident to my hand. Everybody there is warm and welcoming and extremely compassionate. The vibe in the whole place is relaxed yet dedicated to helping each individual and their needs. Specifically, my occupational therapist, Costa, has a natural ability to focus in and address the unique problem that requires help in the moment. I know I progressed for the better because of his expertise and desire to be beneficial. The second you walk in and meet Monina (a doll!) at the front desk, you know you’re in the best hands

This really helped set my recovery to a great start…

ACL full recovery- I started with George a month before my ACL surgery and I was able to reach full range of motion right before surgery as suggested by my surgeon. This really helped set my recovery to a great start. ACL recovery is painful in the beginning but working along George made it easy to understand the different stages I was in and I saw improvement through every session. I had some set backs along the way like tendinitis but that was nothing George couldn’t help me get through. I’m now fully recovered and so thankful for George’s help.

Highly recommended Soma…

Highly Recommend Soma! I have been working with George to help recover from an IT band injury and his help has been life saving. George is a true professional and is extremely knowledgeable. He really takes the time to explain and educate his patients to ensure a smooth path to recovery. Absolutely love this place and have already referred several friends.

I’m happy to say I’m finally back to 100%…

The entire team here is incredibly helpful, friendly, thoughtful, and most importantly committed to your recovery. I came in to treat a shoulder injury I had been dealing with for a year that had been difficult to diagnose and which had not responded well to prior treatment. George worked with me to continuously adopt my treatment plan based on my stubborn shoulder with the ultimate goal of getting me back to all physical activities like sports and the gym I’ve been trying and failing to get back to at full strength. With George’s treatment and instruction I’m happy to say I’m finally back to 100%.

I love Soma…

I love Soma. It’s so pleasant. Clean, Clean, Clean. The work they are doing on my left leg and side is phenomenal. I find it fun even through the pain of working out.
