Cold Laser Therapy – The cold laser produces a beam of light, which is applied over the injured area to stimulate healing. There is no pain with cold laser therapy. When a living tissue absorbs the light, it triggers biological reactions in the cells producing chemical substances. This is then released and carried by blood and lymphatic flow to other parts of the system.
Physical Therapy – With physical therapy for TMD, the focus is on relaxation, stretching, and releasing tight muscles and scar tissue. Physical therapy is also an important part of recovery from TMJ surgery because it helps to minimize scar tissue formation and muscle tightness.
