Treating TMD and head and neck pain with physical therapy is a very effective method to relieve pain and discomfort. When you come to Advanced Care Physical Therapy for your physical therapy evaluation and treatment, you can expect your therapist to analyze your jaw mobility and release muscle tension in the head and neck region. Dr. Frye has attended continuing education training by Steve Kraus and CRAFTA (Craniofacial Therapy Academy). She will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your jaw joints, neck, thoracic spine and shoulder girdle to determine the structures causing TMJ symptoms.

They specialize in physical therapy services, scoliosis care and working with athletes to improve performance both on and off the playing field.
