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.
About this Treatment

Getting you back to eating right

Our physical therapists can work with you to restore the natural movement of your jaw and decrease your pain. We will perform a thorough evaluation to determine the best course of treatment for your specific condition.

Trusted health every step of the way

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.

The therapy has been amazing…

I came to SOMA for a meniscus tear. The therapy has been amazing and I feel better after just a few weeks. I highly recommend SOMA to anyone.

George has worked wonders on knee…

I started coming to Soma in June of this year with a torn MCL. George has worked wonders on knee. Very mindful and considerate on how much to push forward without aggravating the injury. New exercises weekly to strengthen the knee and post surgery this has definitely helped. The other part which is great is that they’re super helpful on accommodating to your schedule and very helpful with dealing with the insurance companies. It’s an overall great experience I’m very happy that I found them.

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 place was really incredible…

This place was really incredible. Quiet, clean and well thought out office. The physical therapists were so attentive to your needs and were truly there to find whatever issue you had and work through it. I had only had the pleasure of a few physical therapy sessions because my issues were solved quickly but in the time that I did spend there it was used wisely. Not only were the therapists down to earth and nice but they didn’t waste a moments time trying to fix my issue. I hope my issue never comes back but if it does I know there is a place I can definitely go to. Thanks

Extremely professional and knowledgeable…

Costa was extremely professional and knowledgeable with my diagnosis. I had a great time working with him and he made sure I attained the goals we set up together. It was easy to set up an appointment, which they also accommodated in short notice. The office has a positive atmosphere and I look forward to working with him again.

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%.

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!
