    For Patients

    Comprehensive Care for TMJ & Movement Disorders

    Our centre provides specialized care for individuals experiencing movement disorders, including dystonia, tremors, and torticollis. At the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the Greater Toronto Area, we understand the complex nature of these conditions and the profound impact they can have on your daily life and overall well-being. We are committed to offering personalized, effective treatment plans that address not only the symptoms but also the root causes of your movement disorder.

    Understanding Movement Disorders

    Movement disorders encompass a spectrum of neurological conditions that impair the production and control of bodily movements, including Tourette’s syndrome and tic disorders. Alongside dystonia, which leads to involuntary muscle contractions, tremors that manifest as rhythmic shaking, and torticollis, a type of dystonia causing neck twisting, Tourette’s and tics add complexity to these neurological challenges. These conditions can profoundly impact an individual’s daily life. Often, they are found alongside TMJ issues and sleep disturbances, underscoring the need for an integrated treatment strategy.

    Our Approact to Treatment

    Our approach to managing movement disorders is holistic and patient-centered. We understand that effective treatment requires a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of the body’s systems. Our multidisciplinary team works collaboratively to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs.

    The process begins with a thorough evaluation to understand the full scope of your condition. Using advanced diagnostic tools, we assess the structural, functional, and neurological factors contributing to your movement disorder. This comprehensive assessment allows us to identify any underlying connections between your movement disorder, TMJ dysfunction, and sleep-related issues.

    Personalized Treatment Plans

    Based on our evaluation, we create a personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of the following:

    • Neuromuscular Treatments: Addressing the root causes of neurological misfires that contribute to movement disorders.
    • Orthotic Therapy: Custom-designed oral appliances to correct jaw alignment and relieve TMJ-related symptoms that may be exacerbating your condition.
    • Sleep Therapy: Solutions to address sleep disturbances that can impact the severity and progression of movement disorders.
    • Lifestyle Modifications: Guidance on diet, exercise, stress management, and other lifestyle factors that can influence your condition.

    Dr. Goodfellow helped me immensely with all of my TMJ and sleep problems. He always explained every part of my treatment in detail so we were always at the same level of understanding. His staff was extremely kind and always accommodating of my needs. One of the best clinics and most pleasant experiences I have had when getting a medical treatment!

    If you have TMJ issues and headaches, go to Dr Goodfellow! I have suffered from migraines, jaw locking and clicking, aches, etc; after my treatment with Dr Goodfellow and his team, my jaw doesn’t lock and click anymore and I can open my mouth wide again with no pain! My headaches have decreased too. very happy, thank you 🙂
