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.

Had a very bad experience. I called before going at the clinic and asked them if I could come now. She said that I could and didn't inform me about the timings. Apparently I was only called for consultation and had to come back for session in the evening. What a waste of time and money. I was charged 300rs for consultation where as I didn't need one. I just had a slight neck sprain. Only needed few exercises to release the pain. Very bad management and coordination. Never going back.
Great they have the audacity to speak to their patients this way. Clearly it shows how they are. I left my feedback because you guys have bad management. You can keep defending it by calling me names. But a bad review will stay a bad review. I will make sure to spread the word.
PS WHILE LEAVING I DID MENTION I AM NEVER COMING BACK TO THIS CLINIC AGAIN. FORGET ABOUT EVENING.
You guys need to learn how to speak to the people.
You guys are hilarious. Don't try and threaten me with a legal action. I rest my case with the explanation I have given above. I am not going to repeat it again and again that I didn't know about your closing time as it was not informed to me. Try and learn how to take a constructive criticism instead of arguing constantly.
I never took any appointment for today evening so stop lying. I told the doctor then and there that I am never coming again. And stop talking like you are doing some social services. I very well paid you for the 10 minutes I spoke to your doctor.
I had a bad experience and my family, relatives and friends will never revisit this clinic. Period.
End of the story.

Dr Vigil's clinic is the best physiotherapy clinic I have visited so far for my mom's knee pain treatment. I could see positive results within 15 days. Our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Jasmine for her efforts and hard work. Highly recommended. Great gesture and hospitality.
A big thankyou to Dr Vigil clinic team! Keep rocking!😁👍
