At R3 Physio in Alliance/Keller area, we often encounter patients who have exhausted traditional treatment avenues for conditions like TMJ dysfunction and frozen shoulder. These ailments, while seemingly unrelated, share a common thread—they often stem from deeper systemic issues that require a holistic approach to treatment.

TMJ Dysfunction: Beyond the Click

TMJ, or Temporomandibular Joint dysfunction, manifests as clicking, popping, or discomfort in the jaw. While these symptoms might seem localized, they can be indicative of broader systemic imbalances. At R3 Physio, we delve into the interconnectedness of bodily systems, employing techniques like visceral manipulation alongside traditional physical therapy. This unique approach not only addresses the immediate discomfort but also targets the underlying causes, such as postural misalignments or systemic inflammation that might be contributing to the dysfunction.

Frozen Shoulder: Thawing the Ice with Holistic Care

Frozen shoulder, characterized by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint, is another condition that benefits from our comprehensive approach. Traditional therapies often focus solely on the shoulder, but at R3 Physio, we consider the entire kinetic chain and other systems of the body that may be manifesting in this way. By examining and treating related areas such as the cervical spine, thoracic region, and even the fascia surrounding the organs (visceral mobilization), we promote healing that is both more effective and sustainable.

In both cases, our goal at R3 Physio is not just symptom relief but fostering a state of overall health and mobility. By considering the whole person rather than isolated symptoms, we help our patients achieve lasting relief and improved quality of life.
