Temporomandibular disorders and orofacial pain

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a complex joint and one of the most important in the human body since it is through this joint that jaw movements are made, translated by tasks such as eating, speaking and chewing.

It joins the temporal bone to the mandible, on each side of the face, and is close to the ear, being formed by bones, ligament and muscle structures, and menisci.

Dysfunctions of the temporomandibular joint, which can cause orofacial pain, are increasingly common and, therefore, there is a sense of greater awareness among people to resort to orofacial physiotherapy for treatment.

Joint noises, pain and difficulty in opening and closing the mouth, through jaw movements, are the main symptoms of dysfunction in this joint, which you should be aware of. However, there are other manifestations of problems in this joint, such as pain similar to earache, pain in the cervical region, pain in the shoulders, headaches, bruxism (squeezing and grinding the teeth), among others.

If you have any of these symptoms or were previously advised to resort to this area of ​​physiotherapy, you will find a specialized physiotherapist at our clinic who will help you with joint rehabilitation and to reduce or eliminate pain.


Neuro-musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is the area of ​​Physiotherapy specialized in the neuro-musculoskeletal system dedicated to the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of situations caused by these systems. It comprises the treatment of pathologies or dysfunctions of nerves, muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments, both acute situations (traumatic, post-surgical or non-specific) and persistent situations. This type of Physiotherapy has no age limit for application and has the main purpose of improving the quality of life of each patient by preventing, reducing and eliminating pain.

In order to carry out the session plan, it is essential to carry out a specific assessment and define objectives in an intervention plan.

Throughout this plan, the health professional, the Physiotherapist, uses the appropriate treatment techniques for each situation and will also advise on what should be done throughout the day, to complement the work carried out in each session.

Dysfunctions in the shoulder, elbow, spine, knee, foot, hip, sciatica, ligament and muscle injuries, rehabilitation after fractures, accidents, traumas, surgeries and rheumatic diseases are some of our areas of expertise through neuro-musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

Senior Member

Upper limb physiotherapy is intended for the non-surgical treatment of traumatic or degenerative injuries, at the level of the joints of the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands and fingers, which are disturbing and can limit day-to-day activities.

The shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands are joints that, most of the time, work together and are indispensable for our personal and professional daily lives, in the most diverse tasks. The pain that can be felt often affects normal rest and well-being, essential for a good quality of life. The shoulder is a very complex joint given its high degree of mobility compared to other joints and, therefore, there is a greater risk of injury.

Physiotherapy for these joints implies carrying out a previous clinical evaluation, to define the best treatment, and, throughout the process, other evaluations are carried out that allow the patient to see the evolution. The treatment consists of a specialized intervention by the Physiotherapist and is recommended for situations of rehabilitation of these joints, namely post-surgical rehabilitation, adhesive capsulitis, dislocation, muscle or tendinous injury, tendinitis, degenerative diseases, inflammatory and overload diseases and pain. Flexibility and strength are worked on through various exercises, fundamental capacities for an adequate range of motion.

Physical Conditioning and High Performance

Sports Physiotherapy, recommended for anyone, with particular focus on those who practice physical activity or sports, requires the implementation of an individual program, designed by the health professional, according to the characteristics and needs of each person.

This area treats and prevents problems such as fractures, dislocations, tendinitis, contusions, sprains and various injuries.

Physical conditioning physiotherapy aims to improve and maintain physical capacity, that is, strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, agility and motor coordination of the individual, through different clinical training, prepared according to each one. In addition to this work, the physiotherapist teaches new habits, such as regular physical exercise and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle, with a view to increasing people's quality of life. It should be noted that adherence to the practice of physical exercise must be guided and accompanied by a professional in order to be carried out correctly, to prevent problems and ensure benefits from the chosen sport.

High-performance physiotherapy is especially sought after by high-performance athletes and aims to prevent and treat sports injuries, by performing activities and varied therapeutic techniques, according to the person's limits. Failure to treat these injuries implies progression to more serious and sometimes disabling situations.

We therefore advise you to look for a professional with this expertise, which you will find at our clinic. This professional will help you recover and get back to your high physical performance.

Pelvic, Maternal and Sexual Dysfunctions

Throughout the various stages of life that women and men go through, dysfunctions may arise at the level of the female and male pelvic floor and, therefore, there is a need to seek the work of a physiotherapist to assess and treat these natural changes that will taking place.

In terms of men's health, alterations in the urinary and genital systems can also arise from childhood, situations in which Physiotherapy plays a fundamental role. Among many fields, our clinic has several treatments dedicated to men's health: incontinence, sexual dysfunctions, micturition and rectal dysfunctions, pelvic pain, pre and post operative pelvic surgeries.

With a focus on Women, our clinic has areas of action that cover their entire life cycle, such as: pregnancy, preparation for childbirth and postpartum, perineal massage, abdominal diastasis, treatment of sexual dysfunctions (dyspareunia, vaginismus , among others), treatment of pelvic floor disorders (incontinence, prolapses, chronic pelvic pain, among others), endometriosis, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), fertility, menstrual disorders.

Pregnancy is one of the most special moments in a couple's life. Also during this process, dysfunctions arise at the level of the female pelvic floor, since the pregnant woman bears the growing weight of the baby, which, in turn, exerts force on the mother's pelvic muscles. In addition, the hormonal changes that occur also cause changes in the pelvic floor, making it more elastic. Allied to these aspects, the moment of delivery also has an impact on these new conditions of the pelvis.

Thus, in order to minimize traumatic procedures for both mother and baby, it is important to act before, during and after childbirth. It is suggested, therefore, that the mother start the pre-delivery preparation after the 12th week of pregnancy, provided that she has a statement from her obstetrician where he demonstrates that there are no contraindications for doing so. After delivery, between 6 and 8 weeks have passed (period in which the body is still undergoing changes), the mother must start Physiotherapy again. The consultation with the Gynecologist or Obstetrician is carried out after 4 to 6 weeks after childbirth, and physiotherapy can be started from that moment on.

Prevention involves performing Urogynecological and Obstetrics Physiotherapy before and during pregnancy, where everyday habits are corrected, exercises are performed to strengthen lumbar, pelvic and sacroiliac joint mobility, learning tools to prepare for childbirth , mastery of breathing, pain relief postures.

After childbirth, it is essential that physiotherapy is maintained, however, with different objectives: returning the normal functioning of the pelvic floor muscles to support the organs, conservation of continence of physiological functions, maintenance of sexual function.

Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates emerged through Conventional Pilates with the aim of being applied to situations of movement pathologies or dysfunctions and also to enhance physical conditioning, improving people's quality of life.

This modality of therapeutic exercise is carried out under the guidance of a Physiotherapist, with specific training in this area, in which each exercise of each session is adapted to the clinical case of each patient, with reassessments being made in order to optimize the treatment.

It is indicated for people with postural alterations, spinal pathologies/pain (dorsal, cervical and lumbar) and balance problems. In addition to relieving back pain, it strengthens your muscles and helps maintain balance.

The benefits are many and at different levels. If you want to relieve muscle pain and fatigue, increase strength and resistance, increase concentration, improve balance, improve body awareness that is reflected in a more adequate posture, acquire greater muscle control and coordination of movements, learn to breathe more fluid and relaxed, relieve stress and benefit in terms of sexual health, book your individual classes, for two people or in a group with us.

Pediatric Physiotherapy

Pediatric Physiotherapy is a specialized area of ​​Physiotherapy that performs the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal and respiratory conditions, among other conditions, that affect the development of babies, children and adolescents.

Its objectives are to promote motor development, prevent secondary complications, improve physical and respiratory function, and help them achieve maximum independence and participation in the activities carried out.

Regarding musculoskeletal conditions, this area of ​​Physiotherapy is designated for the treatment of delayed conditions in motor development, orthopedic injuries (fractures, postoperative period, sprains, dislocations, ligament injuries), scoliosis and other postural alterations. In terms of respiratory conditions, we have treatments for patients with asthma, cystic fibrosis, bronchiolitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, atelectasis, and recurrent respiratory infections.

We emphasize the importance of early intervention. The sooner a child starts treatment for his condition, the greater the possibility of improving his motor, functional and respiratory skills, significantly, his quality of life. Early intervention also helps to prevent secondary complications associated with each clinical condition and enhance the global development of the baby, child, or adolescent.
