JERI ROBERTS, RMT
Do you want to be able to enjoy your favourite foods without pain?
Do you want relief from the discomfort that comes from clenching your teeth?
Perhaps you want to reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches?…
If you’re nodding your head yes, keep reading.
Like you, I am living with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). I’ve experienced all of the above symptoms and know firsthand how much it can interfere with quality of life.
For me, it has been an ongoing struggle since childhood due to an excessive overbite. Fast forward into adulthood, I am now a chronic clencher which has further added to my jaw tension and discomfort.
In my pursuit to find ways to relieve my symptoms, I quickly realized TMD is a condition that is not clearly understood and there is no one therapy that is considered the gold standard in the treatment of TMD. After trying many different options with limited success, I began treating myself with intra-oral massage, which became my biggest source of relief.
I realized there was gap in the market in our area for manual therapy to treat TMD. This fueled my desire to learn as much as I could about this condition. It then led me to focusing my practice on helping others like me find relief and manage TMD symptoms with intra-oral massage therapy.
Over the past 3 years I have taken several advanced training courses for the assessment & treatment of TMD in addition to self study. This combined with my shared experience with clients has enabled me to effectively alleviate discomfort and empower clients to manage their symptoms with home care exercises.
I’ve been a massage therapist since 2009, practicing in Owen Sound since graduation from Georgian College. I’ve worked in a variety of settings with physiotherapists and chiropractors. This has allowed me to develop collaborative relationships with other health care practitioners. These connections facilitate getting the best possible outcomes for my clients when additional modalities are needed.
I enjoy working with individuals like you because I’ve lived your struggle and I know how difficult it can be. But I also know what it’s like to feel better and I want to help you feel the same way. Let’s get started working together to get you some relief, schedule your appointment today.
