What is TMJ and How Can Physiotherapy Help?
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a complex structure that connects your jaw to the skull. When this joint is misaligned or stressed, it can lead to a range of symptoms, including pain, stiffness, clicking sounds, and limited jaw movement. TMJ physiotherapy is a specialized form of treatment that focuses on relieving these symptoms, improving jaw function, and enhancing overall quality of life.

Brittney is a recent graduate of the Master of Science in Physical Therapy program from the University of Alberta. Prior to her graduate studies, Brittney completed a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Alberta and a Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of Calgary.

Brittney is passionate about partnering with clients to create individualized programs that will promote recovery goals and allow them to return activities that are most meaningful to them. While empowering her patients to take an active role in their rehabilitation process, her treatment approach uses a combination of education, hands-on manual therapy, and therapeutic exercise prescription. She strives to empower patients as they get back to what they love to do.
Born and raised in Calgary, Brittney is excited to return to her home close to the mountains. Outside the clinic, she enjoys skiing (downhill, cross country, and water), golfing, playing volleyball, painting, and exploring the outdoors.
January graduated from University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Physical Education. After a year working as a kinesiologist, she completed her Masters of Science in Physical Therapy from McMaster University in 2013. Having realized that being able to see and experience the mountains were an integral part of her well-being, she returned to Alberta. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, skiing, yoga, indoor climbing, knitting, and crochet, as well as just chilling out with her two cats and a good book. At work, January uses a holistic, hands-on approach and is excited to find the root of the problem and share in the results of a tailored treatment plan with her clients. She has further training in running injuries (treatment and prevention), Functional Dry Needling (level 2), Vestibular Rehabilitation, and Women’s Health (treating pelvic floor pain and/or dysfunction, incontinence, pre and post-natal). January firmly believes that her clients have just as much to teach her as she them, and she looks forward to working together to come up with a plan that fits their needs.
Jessica came to Physiotherapy by way of Veterinary Sciences. As a Veterinary Nurse (Animal Health Technician), she was inspired by the remarkable outcomes she was seeing in my four-legged patients who received physiotherapy. Her desire to learn more motivated me to return to school. She graduated with a Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta after completing an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Calgary. Jessica has pursued additional training intramuscular stimulation, and a variety of manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue release, and joint mobilizations and manipulations, which she integrates in her patients’ in-clinic care. In addition, Jessica is a 200 hr registered Yoga Teacher and enthusiastic climber. She offers PhysioYoga and a clinical care devoted to climbers as part of her practice. She believes that the quality of one’s life can be elevated by drawing awareness to movement and promoting simple repetitive changes to continue recovery and performance beyond the clinic. In her spare time Jessica can be found exploiting the mountains to their fullest with her husband- running their two dogs, rock climbing, skiing, mountain biking or backpacking.
