After years of pain, I am finally on track to getting to the bottom of it. Anna, had been fantastic. I have had many therapists over the years and She outshines them all. Her technique, professional manner, and knowledge is amazing. I Highly recommend her and the clinic.
I’ve been seeing Anna as my osteopath for a few months and she is amazing at what she does, the progress and the results truly speaks for itself. I highly recommend booking in with Anna for TMJ concerns.Dr. Damian and Dr. Braham have also been extraordinary in their respective fields, I always feel that I am in safe hands.
Very impressed with treatment.
Professional /helpful/ excellent.
I suffer with Trigeminal Neuralgia, TMJ, and a severely painful left arm, Melanie Tam is my miracle worker. It was a case of finding the root cause which no one else has managed to do in 16 years, this wonderful lady is not just a fantastic therapist, but genuinely cares.
I'm blown away with the service by the receptionist Charlie and Tram; the Osteopath I saw, it was my first time coming to this clinic after being referred by my dentist for jaw pain.This clinic was spotless, it was clean and smelt very good.I was rapid firing all my questions like a curious 5 year old who just tasted ice-cream for the first time and wants to know how grass is made.Neither Charlie or tram missed a beat and they were able to answer all my questions, it's been a while since I've been this impressed.thank you to the team at Melbourne TMJ
Met with Jenny today, very impressed, explained everything very clearly and listened to what I had to say. Was professional and caring, obviously knows her field well.Would recommend then without hesitation
A lovely clinic with experienced and caring practitioners. Thank you for your care.
I am very grateful to Pete for his great work.He was attentive during the first consultation, understood my problem and worked from there.He was very accurate and proceeded carefully and successfully. Also he taught me some useful exercises that help a lot too.I recommend his services without a doubt.
I've been having TMJ problems for years and after years of struggle, it is way more manageable and haven't really much struggles with it since I came here for sessions. I didn't know postures (even in sleep) can affect or put pressure to your jaw. Mel is amazing and one of the main reasons I got through my jaw issues. She walked me through the right habits and exercises and relieve tension and pressure on my head, neck and shoulders
I’ve had the best experiences with TMJ. My monthly sessions with Shan have been terrific and he’s certainly helping me achieve my goal to re-align my jaw after major cancer surgery. The service is friendly, efficient and highly professional. And wonderfully, everything runs on time. I thoroughly recommend TMJ.
The physiotherapists here are really good. The centre takes a holistic approach to TMJ disorder treatment, giving effective exercises to do at home and also looking at other factors like diet, pillow choice, dental splints, daytime jaw tensing.
Thank you Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre. Warm and friendly reception; these practitioners are indeed specialized in this unique field. I had multiple life stressors this year and developed persistent and severe ear pain. Repeated visits to my GP without success. After the first meeting, a significant improvement in my ear pain and jaw functioning. I now have strategies and knowledge for management. As a healthcare professional, I highly recommend this service 😌
I am so happy I have found this place. I have suffered with back pain for such a long time. The extremely skilled Physio's here have helped me immensely (I have seen a few) The pillow they recommend is also fabulous and is helping with a better quality sleep.Thanks for the great treatment and service.
I started treatment at the Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre in late May, with TMJ & still being treated for it, very complex, then I injured my knee & my back played up all within a short time, I was in a world of pain & have been able to be treated for all the above by my Physio. Meithi, he is so patient, understanding, he really listens & is quick to find the right treatment, I am always able to walk out of the Clinic much better than when I limped in. The reception staff are always happy, very pleasant on the phone, quick to respond via email, patient & understanding. The Clinic seems to run so smoothly & orderly which eases my mind greatly, many thanks to you all!
After 20 years of suffering with a damaged neck (by a chiropractor) and taking anti inflammatory pills, within 4 weeks Darron took away the pain. I am incredibly impressed as nobody could do till now. I would highly recommend this practice and have sent many of my family and friends as well.
Meithilesh has been treating me for 3 weeks.I was given massage & trigger point therapy to complete at home.This has given me relief from a constant headache I have suffered for 3 months.I recommend this treatment & can’t speak highly enough of the care I have received
I had a few sessions & it really helped me out. I even bought a new pillow from them to help my neck. 10/10 SERVICE
Had TMJ for about 15 years, not extreme however recently it has been more painful. A recommendation from my ENT surgeon David James lead me to Melb TMJ, three weeks in and I am starting to feel a lot better, Shan is really good, thanks Shan.G. Burns
Melanie Tam at Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre/More Than Physio has been amazing! Since early December 2022 I have had severe neck stiffness and accompanying headaches. I've had dizziness and then from the resulting stress started jaw clenching (which has produced facial pain and ear issues - ear fullness, popping, tinnitus). I had a number of scans and tests done, and saw multiple physios at other clinics, as well as other types of practitioners. I came across Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre and saw the reviews for Melanie and thought she'd be a great fit. Melanie's knowledge is comprehensive, and she is extremely thorough in her investigations of what is happening. She takes into account how you are feeling psychologically as well, and is particularly understanding and empathetic. Her treatment is very precise, and whenever I have visited her I have had great relief! She's given me a detailed program of exercises and self-massage to do between visits that deal with the neck and jaw, but also underlying problems elsewhere that have been impacting them. After so much searching I am now seeing results - my neck stiffness and pain and accompanying headaches are reducing, and I'm feeling more and more like my old self. For months I was unsure when I could return to work, drive, help out at home, engage in social activities, and get back to exercising. I can now see my way out and Melanie has been a HUGE part of this. I simply can not recommend her highly enough! THANK YOU MELANIE! Reception staff are amazing as well - Ruth, Rebecca, Louise, and Charlie thank you for always being so welcoming!
Excellent result, Kevin Ha has done a thoroughly professional repair of my TMJ problem.
Melanie really knows her stuff! I have complete faith theyll be able to help me releave some of this pain. The counter staff are also very lovely and helpful. They know what they're doing. The clinic is so clean too and very relaxing. They really set a vibe.
Thank you Pete for assisting my son in learning to manage his jaw issue. Your explanations regarding he biomechanics involved helped him greatly in learning to self manage the issue. He is no longer having symptoms and can even eat apples again. Hopefully it holds up OK when he starts his orthodontics.
Melbourne TMJ are truly amazing and i'm so glad I decided to give them a go. I've been to multiple other Physios regarding long term jaw pain but had no success. Kevin immediately identified possible causes and after 4 weeks i've seen incredible results. My sleep has improved significantly and jaw pain has more than halved. I'm not on medicare but possibly the best money I've ever spent, thanks Kevin!!
I'm currently being treated by Pete Furness and think he's an excellent practitioner with specific TMJD treatment experience. His treatment and care have certainly helped ease my TMJD pain. The app he suggested I use has helped raise my awareness of when I'm clenching my jaw, so this has been helpful. Highly recommend.
Mel is the best physio I have been to - period! Cannot praise her enough! She definitely knows her stuff.
Rachel helped me recover from a locked jaw post wisdom teeth surgery and as a bonus helped with my headaches.
When I saw Shan Liang (my practitioner) the first time at the clinic, I was in a very bad condition with dizziness, ear ringing, face and neck pain etc. He listened earnestly to my explanation, even though my English was not native level, so I felt very comfortable. After a couple of treatments, my condition has improved dramatically. He is the best TMJ practitioner I've ever met. I definitely recommend him to people who have the same symptoms as me.
I am so grateful and thankful to the whole team right from reception to the best physiotherapist Agatha. She was so patient in understanding my injury and then explaining me everything bit by bit. Just after my first visit I had a huge difference and I had tears in my eyes because i never thought I will get relief from the pain that I was having from so many years. I now have high hopes from my upcoming visits and I am sure I will heal very soon. Thank you so much for such a smooth and amazing experience. Highly recommended
After experiencing jaw and facial pain over many years, I was skeptical of physiotherapy being able to provide relief ... but it has. My bite is more even, and I am able to nip referred pain in the bud - myself! Physiotherapist Shan really knows what he is doing, listens attentively and imparts the skills needed for self-management. Visiting the centre is a very pleasant experience all round.
I had a locked jaw for two weeks, saw 2 gp and an ent and they said there is nothing I can do. I was in extreme pain. I couldn’t move my jaw and had tinnitus. I called this clinic and was assisted right away. Rachel was great and unlocked my jaw. Highly recommend calling and booking an appointment
Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre provided incredible service. Shan Liang helped me recover from TMJ and was extremely professional and knowledgeable during the months of treatment. Thanks again Shan for your help!
Physio Mel is so caring and knowledgeable!
Very experienced physios, had 2 sessions and feeling some relief already. So far they helped me better than any other physio or chiro I saw over the last 10 years. It`s a nice and welcoming facility as well.
Very friendly therapist. Very professional and will img to help me. Explained everything clearly especially before any procedures that may have been painful. This is my first session and hopefully has put me on the right track but time will tell.I have been having regular therapy sessions for 6 months now and I can say that my symptoms and aches are a lot more manageable now and I am able to control my symptoms myself through the techniques I have learnt. Thanks Peter for all your help.An update just over 1 year on of treatment and my symptoms have eased further thanks to Peter. He is able to identify my weak areas and provide targeted relief and follow up exercises for me to do at home.
Ongoing physio and dental treatment from both Shan and Damien was instrumental in alleviating my TMJ issues. Both practitioners demonstrated a high level of professionalism, empathy, and knowledge throughout the treatment process. I found this combined approach incredibly beneficial, and am now pain free! Would definitely recommend seeking treatment at Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre to anyone dealing with a TMJ disorder.
I had neglected my TMJ issues for sometime and on the recommendation of a family member began my treatment at Melbourne TMJ several months ago. My physiotherapist Mel is a caring , very knowledgeable and capable professional. My sessions with her have provided me with much relief and improvement and I am now only attending for “maintenance “. I have also recently suggested Melbourne TMJ to another family member and she is also experiencing great results from her ongoing treatments.I strongly recommend Melbourne TMJ and Facial Pain Centre .Geraldine
As soon as I entered the Centre, I knew I was in expert hands.The reception staff are kind, welcoming and professional.Darron and his highly skilled team all put me at ease.They all offer exceptional quality treatment, care and advice.I appreciate how they explain each procedures they use before performing them, which reduces my anxiety.I also appreciated the take home information booklet which I was given during my initial visit.I highly recommend Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre to anyone who needs expert specialist care.Sarah Oliver
I've been seeing Melanie for a few months now and my jaw pain has significantly declined, and even my ear issues have improved! Absolutely recommend her. I've also been able to improve my sleep patterns due to her advice. Melanie is experienced and has great bedside manner.
Mel has changed my life ! She is the first person to have given me relief from my immense pain from my jaw issues which date back 35 years!Mel has magic hands!!! Forever grateful.The clinic is very organised, hygienic and relaxing.
Meithi is great - he explained to me the muscles and workings of the jaw and neck, and linked issues I've been experiencing that I didn't even know were related! He's given me helpful tips and exercises I can do myself to relieve the sore/tired muscles in my jaw from teeth grinding/clenching. Thanks Meithi!
About 6 months of being misdiagnosed and shunted from one physio / GP / neurologist / massage therapist to another, I contacted the TMJ Centre for an appointment. I've only had one appointment with Shan so far, but he was amazing. He was reassuring, explained everything about my TMD clearly and I have seen positive results / relief after just this one session. Highly recommend this place to anyone experiencing neck / jaw / ear pain connected with TMD.
After reading all the glowing reviews for Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre, all I can say is that I totally agree with them. I had no idea that all my mouth, tongue, jaw (grinding and clenching) and neck issues could be diagnosed so thoroughly and treated so efficiently. I am also most grateful to Dr Donny Mandrawa from the Dental Suites in Balwyn for referring me. I've had several visits with Chris and could already feel the difference after the first consultation. The guide to self treatment was also very beneficial as it has made me a lot more mindful of the many bad habits I've developed and how to begin unpicking them and applying much better practices. I've certainly learned a lot, even at this stage of my healing journey, so many thanks to Chris and the team for being so fantastic!
Great experience at Melbourne TMJ. The holistic approach to care and their strong focus on the patients’ personalized needs really stands out. I was very fortunate to receive care from Riley and have seen a marked improvement before I began treatment and after. Highly recommend.
I have been seeing Riley for around 5 months now and it really made a difference to my TMJ condition. Riley is very thorough when reviewing my condition and always tries to educate me about how to improve it at home. I would recommend this clinic to anyone with TMJ problems.
I saw Chris Wayne earlier this year after experiencing TMJ issues, including balance issues and pain in my jaw. Chris was professional and empathetic to my situation. After the first session I noticed an improvement in my symptoms, which continued after each session . The exercises Chris provided for me to do at home have assisted in my recovery and in managing symptoms. My full praise and sincere thanks to Chris and team at Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain.
I have been seeing MEL for my very painful TMJ problems and she has been absolutely Fantastic helping me Excellent support and pain management relief so grateful
Lovely and professional team. The dentist and the physio are specialised in treating TMJ issue. Treatments are tailored to each individual to achieve the best outcome. Highly recommended
Highly recommend Melanie. She is caring, interested in her patient, technically excellent and super responsive. Very grateful for the help she has provided my teenage daughter, for her jaw issue and ankle injury. Thank you Melanie.
Melanie’s expertise, attention to detail, and thorough approach has made a big difference. She continues to refine exercises to ensure improvement at each visit, and has made my teenager feel very comfortable.
I had on-going headaches for such a long period of time that my doctor organised a brain MRI to check for something sinister! Ryan and Pete at TMJ have been brilliant at identifying the muscle based problem and then providing real strategies that work. I honestly believed that my concerns could not be addressed and improved so quickly. I now have strategies to implement at home which effectively manage the issue, and most importantly, my peace of mind has improved no end knowing that his issue can be resolved.
Great knowledge and understanding of facial injuries. Melanie is awesome really cares about patients and her knowledge and patient care is excellent
Had a very sore jaw due to long dental work , it is 80% better now . thank you Melanie Tam .
I started seeing Riley Lock at Melbourne TMJ for long term chronic jaw pain and tension. Within 2 visits I experienced very noticeable improvement. Riley is friendly and responsive to my needs in relation to pain and gave me easy to follow instructions to help my symptoms at home. He is easy to talk to and has helped me in a reasonable time period. The clinic as a whole is clean and the reception staff friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the clinic to others experiencing jaw pain.
Always professional and a super clean environment. Riley has been exceptional throughout the entire process and helped with my night time teeth grinding
I have been a patient here for many years first seeing Surbhi then Chris when Surbhi went on maternity leave. Both practitioners are extremely thorough and have been very gentle with me. I have over 21 years of chronic neck and back pain including moderately severe TMJ pain causing dislocations of the joint ( by dentists ) and on occasion whilst eating due to my Hypermobile ehlers danlos syndrome.I highly recommend this clinic for their up to date standards of practice and knowledge in their chosen specialty and all staff are incredibly knowledgeable, patient and explain things simply and slowly especially with me as I am deaf. The customer service is exceptional and I highly recommend this clinic to anyone with chronic/acute symptoms and related disorders to see the clinicians at this facility. They will not be disappointed. The take home exercises in video format are sensational. Thank you and bless you Surbhi and Chris 🙌♥️ My quality of life is better for knowing you both. Sincerely Gabrielle B
I was in despair with a painful jaw that was not getting better. Melanie from TMJ had been brilliant, and I am feeling marvelous. I highly recommend the knowledge, caring and skill at TMJ.
Have been suffering with chronic pain for 6 years and after my first session learnt so much about what was causing it and the specific type of treatment needed. Melanie has been so helpful in reducing my pain, teaching me how to manage flare ups and providing answers as to why my jaw / TMJ is causing pain in other parts of my body. Has changed my life !
Recommended by my exercise physiologist for ongoing jaw and facial pain. I have attended for several weeks now and am finding treatment offers great improvement in alleviation of jaw pain, headache and neck pain. Shan, my therapist, is skilled and offers positive reinforcement at every session.
Absolutely fantastic care from Melbourne TMJ. I am so impressed by their skill, knowledge and know-how. Darron and his team have been amazing in treating my problem, its associated pain and the background issues surrounding my condition.Thank you so much, TMJ, you're fantastic!
After 4 - 5 years of constant facial pain/head aches as well as $$$$ spent on on the process of elimination merry-go-round with Dentist, ENT, Neurologist, Watson Technique specialist physio, Chiro and the list goes on I finally came across Melbourne TMJ Centre. As soon as I had my first appointment with Melanie I had the feeling I was in the right spot. Melanie not only considered my headaches, but took a complete holistic view of my lifestyle, habits, work situation, posture, sleeping etc etc. It took approx 2 - 3 appointments as well as strictly sticking to Melanie's advice when at home including being conscious of posture, keeping up with exercise, stretches etc that I really started to see results. I cannot recommend Melanie enough - she really goes above and beyond plus you feel like she is on the journey with you and just as determined to get your life back to normal without pain. It may seem like a lot of $$$ and commitment, however believe me - this is the best choice you will make to get back on top of your life without being drilled down with constant unrelenting pain.
When asked by my dentist if I would recommend Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre, I didn't hesitate - absolutely! The comprehensive plan for treating my jaw pain included resources and exercises to manage my jaw pain outside the clinic. Attentive, well organised and professional are some of the words I use when recommending this practice.
Couldn't speak more highly of Melanie and the team at TMJ & Facial Pain Centre. Jaw issues seemed to have improved almost immediately after the first session and continue to improve vastly after only six weeks. Extremely happy with the results and the treatment from Melanie thus far.
I have had a really positive experience at the Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre. I have been receiving treatment over the last 2 months and have seen a massive improvement with a huge reduction in pain and symptoms. Reception are always welcoming and efficient, and my physiotherapist Riley Lock is helpful, professional and gives clear explanations of everything. I highly recommend the clinic and am grateful for their help with my TMJ pain.
My experience was nothing but positive. Very informative and professional.
I can sincerely say that the staff at Melbourne TMJ + Facial Pain Centre made a huge difference in the rehabilitation and recuperation process of my TMJ issues. The knowledge and professionalism offered during treatment sessions certainly had a positive impact and high level of assurance that things would ultimately come right. Through, encouragement, perseverance and patience things have eventually come right, save to say I am very happy with the outcome, thanks to all at Melbourne TMJ + Facial Pain Centre
I am having treatment at TMJ & Facial Pain Centre for my jaw pain, which i initially thought the pain was from my ear, until the ENT surgeon referred and directed me to have treatment at TMJ. The physio Melanie is well experienced and very knowledgeble and could diagnose my problem straight away after initial assessment and commenced treatment on the same day.I went for my 4th treatment session today and i am feeling 90% better with the pain totally gone and the jaw is functioning well from all prescribed exercises. And she confirmed my improvement as well. I highly recommend anyone who is suffering from jaw pain to seek treatment at this specialist center as all staff are wonderful and helpful, especially Melanie. The ladies at the reception provides fantastic customer service too.
I can not recommend More than Physio/Melb TMJ & Facial Pain Centre enough. I have been seeing Melanie for the last few months for a long standing jaw issue, which we've actually found is much more extensive than we initially thought. Melanie is great: she explained every step of the process in a very thorough initial consultation, she is reassuring, and regularly checks in to make sure the treatments aren't too painful and that i'm happy to continue. I was quite disheartened after my first appointment but she reassured me that we can work through it. She is so friendly and welcoming, as are the reception team. Highly highly recommend
I’ve been seeing Riley Lock to help with the tension and pain around my TMJ and to say it’s helped is an understatement. I saw an instant decline in the severe headaches I was getting and although the process to reduce tension and pain is slow, I can tell the difference after just a handful of sessions. From figuring out how to change habits to relieving stiffness, every session makes a huge difference. The team are all very lovely and professional. Definitely the best you can find.
I came to Melbourne TMJ & Facial Pain Centre as an emergency patient, I woke up with my jaw completely locked and could only open my mouth 1-2cm with excruciating pain. The staff were wonderful and got me in that day, Darron was not only incredibly knowledgeable but to my surprise and relief he is trauma informed and incorporates modifications to the treatment to allow for client comfort. He was able to take the time to explain each step, ask for consistent consent throughout the treatment as well remind me I had control and the option to stop at any time. As someone with CPTSD, the steps he took to ensure my comfort were extremely appreciated. Within 2 treatments my jaw was fully functional. This made a huge difference for me as I often have panic attacks and a lot of anxiety when it comes to people working around my face. I thought I was going to see improvement in my jaw but I did not expect the overall improvement in my life, my sleep is better, the tension in my neck and back is improving every day, the skills they have taught me that I implemented in my day to day routine are priceless and I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
Fantastic practice!Would highly recommend :)
Very professional, clean, excellent practitioners. My child was treated by Melanie Tam for a few treatments over 3-4 mth period. We have seen significant improvement and no more clicky jaw issues or headaches!
After my initial treatment with Dr Melanie I noticed an instant change - for the better - in my jaw. I’ve suffered with TMJ disorder for years and through regular treatment, I can now open and close my jaw with no clicks and the tightness has significantly reduced. Highly recommend.The new location is well designed and very appealing with the use of wood and LED lighting.
Ryan is fantastic! Very helpful and knowledgeable. I've seen him twice now for my TMJ and always leave feeling much better and equipped with ways I can manage my TMJ at home too! The hands on treatment feels amazing for relaxing my muscles and helping my TMJ
Melanie has been so amazing for my TMJ pain, could not recommend her and the team enough!
Experiencing debilitating jaw pain is quite distressing and not knowing whether it be a doctor or dentist l needed to go to was just as confusing. After googling the condition l made the decision to consult tmj & facial physiotherapy and met Shan. Cannot recommend Shan highly enough his gentle and reassuring nature put me at ease and after a course of treatments my pain is a mere memory. Thank you shan for your professionalism will gladly refer you and your team to anyone in the same predicament.
I have had TMJ pain for over 20 years. I have seen countless dentists and specialists. I’ve tried strong painkillers, mouth splints, Botox, as well as physio/osteo/chiro. I had varying success, but within a few days the pain would come back and sometimes it would be even worse. I didn’t want to take painkillers everyday for the rest of my life, so my GP asked me to try Melbourne TMJ before exploring surgical options. I am so glad I did. After 2 months my pain is manageable and I can see light at the end of the tunnel. Every treatment brings more relief, and in between I have been taught ways to help manage the pain myself. I highly recommend Melbourne TMJ - don’t suffer anymore.
Very good at what they do. I had terrible jaw pains and after a few physio sessions with Riley it was almost back to normal. Would highly recommend for anyone with facial pain
Im not one who usually leaves reviews, it takes a special effort or disaster for me to provide my feedback. And this review lands in the special effort category. After 18 months of bouncing around GPs, Specialists, Physios, Imaging centres, I finally have relief from my intense TMD jaw and ear pain. Riley has been amazing, his specialised facial massage techniques, clear yet detailed explination of what was occuring, along with targeted self help treatments, I can honestly say my discomfort is pretty much gone. Its been about 2 months since my TMD physio started, and in the last month I have felt the best I have in such a long time. Big thanks to the team.
I have waited to review so that my review could reflect the whole experience and my PHENOMENAL healing. I have had chronic TMJ disorder for over 7 years which has been expensive and very painful. I wish I had found this place earlier and saved myself so much money and pain. I have had cranial physio, splints (which are $600 a pop and which I would crack within weeks,) expensive, useless pillows, osteopathy, teeth removed and I could go on. When I saw Mel about February this year, I was in the worst place with TMJ that I had ever been in - facial pain, neck pain, head pain and structural changes to my face that affected my symmetry and confidence. I was getting headaches daily and taking a lot of pain killers. I have a high pain threshold (barely any pain after a caesarean, for reference) so I would say my pain was 7/10. After ONE visit, my facial pain was reduced by about 60%. Fast forward to today after 6 visits and my facial pain is ZERO most days. My advice is to persist...first few weeks my neck pain was very much still there even though my facial pain significantly reduced but I stuck with it and now both my neck pain and posture are significantly improved (my symmetry too) and some days I feel 100% completely normal, which I haven't felt for 7+ years! There's a lot of information provided if you don't know much about the causes of TMJ or the importance of nasal breathing, info on sleeping positions, pillows, magnesium supplements etc. (the upselling wasn't for me as I have been burned before but it wasn't too pressuring.) There's also home exercises which tbh I didn't do that much AND I STILL IMPROVED. Mel is amazing with her care and advice and honestly if I won lotto I'd just employ her exclusively 🤣 - she really is that great. I will drop my visits to once monthly now and then eventually just when needed in the future. Treatment hasn't been cheap but 40 minutes with my osteo is the same price and unfortunately osteopathy didn't help hardly at all. If you are prevaricating JUST DO IT. You will not look back. Thank you, Mel. 😊
I was referred by my ENT to sort out ongoing pain in my left ear. There was no other obvious signs. He said it maybe due to holding tension in my jaw, which maybe causing referred pain in my left ear. The massaging and exercises I'm doing are working very well thanks to Riley.
I can’t recommend Chris at More Than Physio highly enough! Over the last 12 months (on and off) I’d suffered excruciating facial pain for weeks on end, unable to open my mouth to talk or eat at times, terrible brain fog and fatigue like I’d never experienced before. Accompanying those symptoms were the most intense and debilitating migraines I’ve ever had. Upon seeing my GP, I was sent for a Brain MRI which thankfully came back all clear. However, my GP was stumped and basically threw his hands in the air and told me to “go get a massage”.. that left me feeling quite hopeless. Over the next few months the symptoms dissipated until I was back to “normal”. There were a few small “flare ups” but nothing major until about 6-7 weeks ago when the symptoms returned with force. After mentioning to a relative what my symptoms were, they suggested it may be TMJ. After researching TMJ, it sounded exactly like what I was experiencing. I started searching for a Physio who specialized in treating TMJ which led me to More Than Physio. I felt so at ease with Chris straight away because he truly understood the invisible pain I was describing and reassured me I wasn’t imaging the pain. After the very first session, I could feel a difference! It made me so hopeful that Chris could help me get this condition under control. I walked away after that first session knowing I’d found the right person to treat me. I’m so grateful to Chris and the care he’s provided over the last 6 weeks or so. I’ve also been given some self massage techniques to use but also know I can go and see Chris again if I need to. Absolutely recommend!
I have been suffering of TMJ pain(jaw and facial pain, neck, dizziness etc) since December 2021. I decided to go to Melbourne TMJ after being to the osteopath for over 2 months with little results. I have been seeing Riley for 3 months now and my symptoms have greatly improved. Riley has been very professional, kind and helpful. Definitely, i recommend the clinic and Riley as therapist.
My experience has been nothing but positive from the moment I made an appointment to receiving treatment. Everything has been very professional and caring at the same time.The time & detail taken to understand and diagnose my issue was really good & it has meant I was diagnosed correctly so I now feel like I understand my issue and causes & can make improvements towards no more headaches & pain!I am still early in my treatment but have seen great results so far.Would highly recommend.
My Experience at TMJ & Facial pain centerWas very good it was my very first time there as my ent specialist referred me and I’m extremely happy he did. Cause the experience I got was very professional when I walked in the receptionist welcomed meAnd was very professional.Then the physiotherapist I saw was Riley lock and I was very happy with his service he explained everything and spoke very professional I was extremely happy i walked out with a big smile and I’m looking forward to going back for more treatment as I know I’m going to get the best serviceI highly recommend them to family and friends.
I had a TMJ issue for more than 8 years. No Doctors found it. I went to see a lot of specialists but no one found what it was. Finally, I ended up with TMJ MELBOURNE clinic. Now I feel a lot better than any other treatment. Especially I would like to say thank you to Meithi. The service is fantastic. 😊🙏
Words cannot express how grateful I am to the physios at TMJ & facial pain clinic for giving me back my life. When I went there I'd already visited other health professionals who had no idea how to help me, my mouth could only open 11mm and I was in severe pain. The expertise and skill of these guys helped me enormously so that I could eat, yawn and brush my teeth again. Throughout it all I was treated with compassion and respect. Thank you so much Chris, Darron and Pete
I've already recommended this clinic to several of my friends. I went to see them for headaches and jaw and face pain and earache. The owner gave me a very thorough phone consultation (at no charge) to understand my issues and propose a way forward. I was able to get an appointment the same week. I use a smart watch to track my sleep and I saw improvement on the very first night - partly from the treatment and partly just from some simple advice about how to position my body and pillows to facilitate airflow. I was impressed because the smart watch showed how much of a difference even that small adjustment made. I'm so happy with the team and really encouraged by the changes I'm already seeing. If you're having sleep or grinding/clenching issues, can absolutely recommend them. They have also given me some exercises I can do at home to relieve my pain and manage symptoms. Totally worth it.
I’ve been extremely happy with my results and so fast. I’ve been seeing other Physio’s for years but none have got to the root of the problem and treated me so quickly. So relieved I finally have some soothing techniques to help myself and can continue going monthly to keep things moving along nicely. Can’t believe it’s taken me so long to come here the specialists!.
Since going to TMJ my jaw and facial pain is nearly gone. Thank you to Riley, who explained very clearly and professionally why I was getting the pain in the first instance, the proposed treatment that was required and what to expect in the following consultations. All communication has been clear, upfront and very professional. Thank you so much Riley.
I saw a great tmj physio called Chris here for some follow up management of my neck/jaw issues. A really wholistic practitioner who helps patients understand the connection between stress and tmj headaches and pain. He encourages independence and self-management as well as giving a very effective, targeted massage treatment
