The jaw can be a source of pain, can also limit movement of the mouth, cause headaches, ringing in the ear, and neck pain. Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Dysfunction is often due to muscular imbalance in the jaw and/or neck. It is one of the smallest joints in the body, but can be one of the most debilitating because we must frequently use it throughout the day when eating or talking.
One of the major causes of TMJ dysfunction is bruxism, a repetitive clenching or grinding of the teeth. This typically happens at night while sleeping, so people may not be aware of it until their dentist notices early wearing on the teeth or a spouse or family member may hear the grinding sound. Another potential cause of TMJ dysfunction includes activities where the mouth is forceful closed in a misaligned position such as in excessive gum chewing and nail biting. Degenerative joint disease, structural mouth and tooth issues, and neck and upper back posture can also contribute to TMJ dysfunction. It is important to assess posture because when posture is poor, it disrupts the normal mechanics of the muscles responsible for chewing, putting additional strain on the joint.
Physiotherapy is beneficial for people who suffer from TMJ issues. Physiotherapists, who have specific training in the TMJ, will properly assess not only the jaw, but also the neck.

My experience with Dr. Vigil's Advanced Physiotherapy was good. I had severe back pain since last 8 months. Due to my busy schedule I am not able to go any treatments.
Before come to Dr. Vigil's Advanced Physiotherapy clinic I have tried two physiotherapy in Andheri near to my office. Unfortunately both failed.
But here at Dr. Vigil's place the process treatment is different. Dr. Vigil is having advanced shockwave machine which do faster healing process.
After week physiotherapy my backpain almost gone. Now as directed I am going gym and with his guidance I have recover from my prolonged back pain.
My personal advice to everyone who has back pain and looking for solution than Dr. Vigil is doctor you looking for complete treatment.
Thank you Dr. Vigil and its team to helping me from bad back pain.

Previously i was under therapy at different place but due to some reason i had to leave that place. So i heard of vigils and i came here and started with my therapies.
Here the atmosphere is very friendly and the doctors are extremely helpful.
The techniques and the methods are extremely great. I am feeling much confident and i can feel the speedy recovery.
I would surely recommend everyone to try vigils. My doctors ( Dr. Sulva and Dr. Rifa) are taking good care of my injury and their dedication towards me and my injury is what i would like to appreciate alot.
