Physical Therapy Modalities

  • Laser Light Therapy: (noninvasive treatment) light waves are emitted to target the TM joints and surrounding areas. Laser Light Therapy stimulates the joints natural ability to heal. This results in significant pain reduction for patients with musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis, as well as tinnitus and disc displacement.
  • Iontophoresis: Transdermal delivery of treatment medication to muscles of mastication, TMJ and related areas. This method aids in providing rapid pain relief and is used as an alternative to local anesthetic injections.
  • Ultrasound Therapy: Focused sound waves are used to reduce pain and swelling of affected areas.
  • Physical Therapy: In addition to the therapies mentioned above, Dr. Stern may also prescribe alternative therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic, craniosacral therapy and massage.
  • Stress Management: such as biofeedback and neurofeedback
