The Department of Physical Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine at Chester County Hospital has extensive experience treating disorders of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ). Our team has received advanced educational training from Mariano Rocabado, PT, DPT, CCTT, Jeffrey S. Mannheimer, PT, PHD, PC, CODN, CCTT, and Katherine Tan, PT, MS, OCS, CCTT.
Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team with dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists, and primary care physicians, we don’t just treat pain, we address the cause of the patient’s condition.
