We Are TMD & TMJ Treatment Specialists

What is our approach?

Temporomandibular joint disorder or dysfunction (TMD) affects the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This is the joint that joins the jaw, or mandible, to the temporal bone of the skull. When the joint is damaged it can lead to pain in the jaw, neck, ears, head and face. TMJ treatment is important for eliminating these symptoms. The inflamed temporomandibular joint can lead to lock jaw, facial swelling, nerve inflammation, headaches, tooth grinding, and sometimes even dislocation of the joint itself.

A detailed physical therapy assessment and successful TMJ treatment will focus on:

  • Postural alignment of the neck, head and jaw
  • Muscle imbalances in the mouth, neck, jaw and head
  • Normalizing mechanics of the TMJ to move properly on each side throughout opening & closing of the mouth.

Why we are different

You will always receive the highest quality of care by working with an experienced, licensed physical therapist. No techs. No aides. No assistants. No double booking.

Our physical therapy goal is to provide the best help that we can to ensure you have a healthy, more pain-free life! We do not have aids and assistants because we want all of our patients to get the right care and treatment plan from our most qualified physical therapists. We cut out the middle man to give you the most effective treatment. 

How does TMD & TMJ treatment work?

Having jaw pain (“click” or “clunk”) with biting, chewing and even sleeping can be a debilitating and frustrating condition. Properly treating this condition can offer relief! Posture education and improving jaw movements are a major factor of the TMD & TMJ treatment plan for this disorder. Having correct posture will relax the jaw muscles and improve the resting position of the jaw, head, neck and shoulders.

Did you know?

The TMJ is comprised of two joints on each side. They are located on each side of the face, just in front of your ears where your jaw meets your skull.

TMD & TMJ disorders can occur early or later on in life. Women ages 18-44 are more susceptible for this disorder.

Upper back and neck positions directly affect how the TMJ functions.

TMD & TMJ Disorders We Treat

TJM treatment can help with numerous symptoms associated with the head, jaw and neck. When the temporomandibular joint does not function properly it can create pain and problems with:

Opening the Mouth

One of the most common symptoms of TMD and TMJ is pain associated with opening of the mouth. Yawning and conversation movements are the main causes of this pain and can be not only be extremely frustrating but also very painful.

Chewing & Eating

Due to facial swelling, eating and chewing can create pain in the face and jaws. Trouble with chewing and a feeling as if the upper and lower teeth are not fitting together properly is a common symptom.

Headaches

There are many factors with TMD and TMJ that can create headaches and migraines. The pain from jaw clenching, joint inflammation and facial swelling can travel to other places in the skull, causing head pain.

Tooth Grinding/Jaw Clenching

Many people clench their jaws and grind their teeth at night while they sleep, usually brought on because of stress. Individuals may also clench their jaw throughout the day. This puts a pressure and  strain on the TMJ and its surrounding muscles.

Neck Movement

Poor posture can put unnecessary and extra pressure on the muscles of the neck and shoulders creating pain and stiffness when moving the neck.

Ear Pain

Due to the location of the temporomandibular joint, ear pain is often a common irritant of this disorder. The joints are connected from the jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are located in front of each ear.

I highly recommend Evolve Physical Therapy. I’ve been working on my knee pain and vertigo recently and have seen a vast improvement. I know that it took some time to get to the point that my pain was so bad and it will take time for it to get better. I treat physical therapy as medication. If I don’t do the exercises I will not get better. You will not regret making an appointment at Evolve. They are very caring and will take great care of you.

I saw Matt W. for close to six months after having some hip (impingement and small labral tear) and glute issues. Matt was very thoughtful and deliberate with both my diagnosis and treatment. He communicated very clearly with me and has really helped me not only lessen my discomfort, but set me on a "lifetime path" to a smarter way to train my body, specifically my core, and glutes. After I moved to Portland from Sherwood Matt continued to respond to my questions via e-mail and spoken to me on the phone about my continued path to full recovery. I will forever be thankful for what I have learned from Matt and the better place I am in now because of his care.

I came in after an accident. Everyone I met was kind and professional. I felt supported through my healing journey and was given all the tools I needed to recover from my injury. 10/10

My time at Evolve PT was honestly a blast. Never did I lament going to PT as the staff made me feel welcome and every session I felt like the staff genuinely cared for my progress and well-being, outside of the injury I was going there for. Matt Weissbach was incredibly accommodating and his modern and fresh take on physical therapy is a breath of fresh air. I previously came from a college football program where I failed to recover due to overuse and straining the targeted injury rather than letting it heal and being proactive about the pain. Matt listened to the input I had to give, and I was back to running and jumping in no time. I highly recommend Evolve PT to anybody recovering from an injury or even for wellness and mobility checkups! Again i can't stress the fact that Matt had the most modern, scientific approaches while also listening to the feedback of his clients. Next football injury thats come around, ill be going to Evolve PT to get back in shape!

My history with physical therapy and rehab has been extensive due to 5 knee surgeries from football and basketball. I have been going to various PT clinics over the past 8 years and none of them have given me the results and knowledge that Evolve PT has. My most recent surgery was a meniscus transplant in January (which forced me to medically retire before my senior season of college football) and I have been attending Evolve PT since. I had a long 2 year recovery ahead of me and my strength and abilities in my knee were non-existent. Matt Weissbach and his extensive knowledge have helped me immensely better understand the physiology of my knee and where and what I need to improve on. Combine this with the state of the art equipment that Evolve has and I have surpassed all expectations on my rehab and have made drastic improvements. I have and will continue to recommend Evolve PT to anyone that has had injuries, surgeries, or are simply not at the physical level they want to be at. Brittany Abeyta is also a wonderful coordinator and is very helpful in understanding and setting up insurance for patients. Evolve PT in truly the best PT in the North West.

My experience with Evolve Physical Therapy has by far been the best decision I could make to improve my overall health and physical needs. I was involved in a horrific accident over two years ago where I tore my left ACL, PCL, LCL, and had meniscus damage. Additionally I dislocated my left hip and was faced with a long road to recovery. With so much damage, the simple act of walking was a challenge for several months post-operation.Working with Dr. Matt Weissbach has been a pleasure. Full of knowledge and experience Dr. Weissbach has helped me make the type of progress I didn’t know would be possible. Over the course of four months I have been able to strengthen and stabilize my left knee and hip that has allowed me to return to an active lifestyle with confidence! Dr. Weissbach has addressed my needs through tailored exercises addressing areas that require improvement. I am now able to walk, run, and return to physical activity with a significant reduction in pain and swelling thanks to rehab. After every session I walk away feeling better knowing the improvements that are being made. I would like to thank the Evolve Physical Therapy team for always being welcoming and professional. Highly recommended!

I went to Evolve to get help with a car accident injury as a last resort. I was pleasantly surprised how quick At the results. The hands on therapy and techniques brought me relief in just a month. I had been under chiropractic care and massage therapy for 9 mos before that without relief of mid back pain. If anyone is experiencing persistent pain I recommend you give Evolve a call, you will find the relief you’ve been looking for and learn techniques to keep the pain away.Thanks Matt Whitaker!Melany Stoddard

I had a very bad accident the end of April which required a lot of special care and specialized therapy. I was so blessed to have found Evolve Physical Therapy. The time, care and professionalism has been outstanding. I always feel like I am important to them and know that they are vested in my healing and improvements. The goals that I set on my first appointment have been met and exceeded. I just continue to get stronger, and the steps and care that they are providing are making a world of difference in my healing.

This place is great! Everyone there is super friendly and helpful. I have a small tear in a disk and have had lower back pain for about a year. Melisa was so awesome in working with me for 12 visits to get some stretching and exercises done to help strengthen and stabilize the area of concern. This has helped me reduce pain and increase flexibility and strength in the area.

I have been going to evolve for almost 3 months now. I fractured my hip. When I started I could barely bend my knee and could not bare weight on my left leg and had to use a walker to get around. During this time of physical therapy Matt has created a wonderful plan for my recovery. I am now able to walk with the aid of a cane. I have many months ahead of recovery and have chosen Matt because of his great personality, professionalism, and ability to meet me where I am in my struggle. I look forward to my visits and am making great progress with each and every appointment.

Evolve Physical Therapy is amazing. I was experiencing a lot of pain, swelling and lack of extension and mobility on my right leg due to being bone on bone on the medial side of my knee. So, I had a partial knee replacement and needed PT. In a short few months Evolve has helped me regain mobility, reduce swelling to almost none and increased my extension by 95%. Knee replacement is a trying journey but Evolve has helped me so that I can now ride my bike, swim, walk distances. I am back to walking without a limp and can do all of the things I love to do.Thanks Evolve!

I was rear ended pretty badly a couple years ago and it really messed up my neck and upper back. I started going to Evolve Physical Therapy after only getting temporary relief through chiropractic adjustments, massages and acupuncture. I ultimately found the best relief from pain and muscle tension through going to Evolve Physical Therapy. Before going, I couldn't play guitar for more than a few hours without my whole upper back becoming inflamed and sore. Now that I have strengthened those muscles through PT, I can play for hours with no problems. Highly recommend Evolve!

I came to evolve after having ACL reconstruction. My goal was to be back playing the main sports I played in before my injury and to not let it affect me mentally. After working with Melisa and the rest of the Evolve team, I am back to performing at the same level I was previously even sooner than I had anticipated! The whole team is very friendly and great to work with.

My experience at Evolve Physical Therapy was phenomenal! I worked with Dr. Matt Weissbach who was very understanding and knowledgeable of my knee injury. He really wanted me to be back to full health as fast as possible and the plan we developed accomplished that goal. After working with Dr. Weissback I feel I am a better athlete and am more in tune with my movements.  Brittany at the front desk always greeted me with a smile and was very helpful during check-ins and scheduling along with ensuring a clean and healthy facility.

I started going to Evolve with not much hope of my shoulder getting back to normal. I had an injury that was months old and still causing me severe pain. I saw Matt Weissbach and he helped me get my shoulder back to normal! Matt really listens to what's going on and takes the time to help heal you in a personalized way. The whole staff is super friendly and they are very accommodating in the times of day that you can make an appointment. I highly recommend Evolve Physical Therapy!

Matt at Evolve Physical Therapy has been very helpful with my recovery for my recurring rib injury. Taking a holistic approach, we are working on the system (my back) and not just the symptoms (my ribs). Matt was willing to get me in right away early the next morning after I called. Far better than the 1 month wait I had last time with Providence. I am feeling quite better even though I have had to work on the deck at home. Matt also had recommendations for ergonomics of my desktop home work environment.

Matt Whittaker at Evolve Physical Therapy was highly recommenced by another member at my health club. 8 months after surgery to repair my rotator cuff, countless visits to another physical therapist had resulted in very limited recovery. After just a few sessions with Matt, my range of motion has greatly improved and my pain is gone.The facility is well laid out, open and extremely clean. The staff is professional, friendly and capable. Their attention to the safety of their patients is off the charts. Matt’s professional knowledge and capability is impressive, he knows his stuff! If I could give them 6 stars I would.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Evolve Physical Therapy! I have been a runner all my life - it’s my happy place - so when I experienced pain in both of my ankles that was so severe that I couldn't run anymore, I was extremely depressed and frustrated and had no idea what to do. A friend recommended Matt Whitaker at Evolve Physical Therapy; she told me he had “saved her life” when she was experiencing knee pain and I have to tell you, I was skeptical of physical therapy at first - but Matt saved me too!Matt and all of the staff at Evolve are very friendly and welcoming, the place is very clean and professionally run and everyone there truly cares about your wellness. Matt knew exactly what was wrong with me and what strength training and physical therapy exercises I needed to do to fix the tightness in my calves and lower back and improve my hip and core strength which together were contributing to the pain in my ankles. Matt explained everything in a way that was super easy to understand - not only what exercises to do but how different parts of my body are connected, how that impacts my running form and paces, and how and why the exercises help. He also gave me advice on how to improve my running technique!In just a matter of weeks, I went from not being able to run at all to now I’m running, hiking, and working out in some way nearly every day! I can honestly say I am now in the best shape of my life and I owe it to Matt. I would give him 100 stars if I could, he is seriously the BEST. I highly recommend Matt Whitaker and Evolve Physical Therapy, you will not be disappointed!

I saw Matt Weissbach at Evolve for two different injuries in 2019 and 2020. I fractured my foot for the second time in August of 2019. After several months, it was still not healing correctly (tbh it never really did the first time in 2014 either) and i had known Matt from a previous PT clinic before he opened his own in Sherwood. I called Evolve up and was able to get in to see him in a few days. No it’s not a quick fix. Healing takes time. But over the next couple of months I gained my strength back in my foot, leg and whole body. He showed me how a small injury even just a foot affects your entire body, the other side that wasn’t injured and even mentally. Then when my work sent everyone to work at home in March, I was not prepared ergonomically and my back suffered tremendously. I was having the worst back spasms sometimes I could hardly stand it, laying in the fetal position. I did a few video appts with Matt and he helped me work on my overall strength and mobility. When we’re allowed to go back into the clinic with masks, we went right to work. I am now in the best shape of my life. Matt has made me realize that Physical therapy is not just something you do when injured or a temporary fix, it’s something you work at everyday. It’s mindfulness, it’s body awareness, it’s finding the exercises and process that works for you as an individual. Matt is not only a great physical therapist, but just an overall kind person who genuinely cares for you and your well being. I highly recommend Evolve and all of his staff are welcoming and great to work with.

I am an avid tennis player and over the last year, injured my right rotator cuff muscles (twisting on serves). Since I am a right handed player it was getting difficult on serving which I modified to offset the pain. I went to see Matt W. at Evolve PT in Sherwood and over 2 weeks (2 times/week) I have reduced the pain completely with the exercises prescribed. I would highly recommend anyone with muscular joint pain to visit. I was skeptical as my previous PT sessions at another facility did not help but actually made it worse. I cannot believe I waited so long as I could have been pain free months ago. My wife suggested I go as she had both hips replaced and the PT did help reduce her discomfort as well. I am playing tennis twice per week (1.5 hours at a session) pain free. Give them a try you will NOT be disappointed.

To whom it may concern:I was referred to Evolve Physical Therapy. I am one of those active seniors, that sometimes push myself a little to hard working out. I met Matt and he actually listened to my concerns. Matt knew immediately how to remedy my posture and lower back issues, as well as helping me protect my knee replacements. Evolve is a state of the art organization, that takes their work seriously as well as enjoying what they do.I highly recommend them .Tom Abalan

Let me start out by saying in my past I have hated physical therapy with a fiery passion. I’m a trauma survivor who has PTSD and PT has always triggered me. I’ve have had several pretty difficult injuries in my life and also have had to go to physical therapy after surgery. The injury that brought me to Evolve was an ankle sprain. Both of my parents went to Evolve and recommend them to me. I was dreading it with all my heart, and also understanding that I had to go to get better. The first thing I learned about Evolve is that they are incredibly interested in helping you recover from your injuries. I’ve worked with two physical therapist there and they both were spectacular.Matt W. Helped me work on my sprain and when I was not not healing well and my hands started hurting, he urged me to see my GP which led to finding out I had Rheumatoid Arthritis. I got my RA under control and was able to get my ankle back to a healthy state. His keen eye and willingness to listen helped me so much and helped me trust myself more.I am currently working with Melisa on my chronic shoulder and back pain. She has been incredibly helpful in helping me deal with and find ways to move with out setting off my fight or flight response and slowly but surely I’m getting better. She so clearly understands that being human is much more then just moving parts.Another awesome person at Evolve is Brittany she The patient coordinator. Sh is one of the most on point office managers I have ever seen . She goes the extra mile even when she does not have to. She deserves a shout out because she works so hard and makes dealing with insurance way easier and less triggering. She is also incredibly easy to communicate with and is always very kind.I see an incredible team working together to provide some of the BEST PT possible. The other thing I am absolutely interested in is how easy their staff makes Trauma Informed Care implementation look. It’s clearly woven into everything they do. Even if they don’t have it plastered all over their walls it’s clearly part of their practice. If anyone I know ever needs PT I will strongly recommend Evolve they are at the top of the PT world. This place has changed my life in so many ways. Thank goodness for Evolve!!!

I chose Evolve primarily because of location. I had also heard very positive reports from acquaintances.I was able to schedule my appointments in a timely fashion which I was important to me. The owner also worked with me to develop a self payment plan.Matt has been informative and encouraging. He has offered different treatment options to facilitate “getting back to normal”.I feel that I am in very capable hands and that my recovery is as important to Matt as it is to me!

This was my first experience in physical therapy, and I am so grateful I found Melisa at Evolve. She is absolutely amazing at what she does and so incredibly knowledgeable. I had a pretty bad concussion and neck strain from an ice skating fall, and Melisa listened to me, kept me focused on my goals, and helped guide me through my recovery over the span of several months. I am now almost back to my regular self, and she is helping me get back to my running goals. I’m starting to train for my next race (a feat I thought was impossible 3 months ago).I would highly recommend Evolve Physical Therapy!

I initially started seeing Melisa for a running injury to my foot. Through the course of several visits, we determined that much of what I was struggling with was nerve pain and that the source of the pain was actually a larger issue than just the running injury. My sessions with Melisa, and the at home exercises she has given me, have helped me to build strength and flexibility in a very targeted way. My nerve pain is improving and I am back to running! I am continuing to work with Melisa for further improvement and targeted development of my running form so that I can continue to do what I love without pain!

I saw Matt on an emergency basis for vestibular therapy for BPPV. Evolve was able to get me an appointment less than an hour after calling whereas the soonest I could get an appointment through my healthcare system was 2 days later. Anyone who’s ever had a BPPV episode knows that there’s no possible way to endure it for 2 days. I was so grateful Evolve was able to get me in so quickly and even more grateful that I didn’t have to explain what BPPV is to the scheduler. She knew what it is and that I had to be seen quickly. I was more than happy to pay out of pocket for the high quality care and expertise I got from Matt. I’m someone who actually wants to know all about the science of things and picked up on that quickly and obliged my curiosity. He is super skilled and very highly trained at vestibular therapy and I couldn’t feel more blessed that I found him within a 30 minute drive just through an internet search of last resort. Thanks to Matt and Evolve I can actually enjoy Thanksgiving with family!

I've been dealing with neck and shoulder issues for over 4 years, and have seen so many different physical therapists, and Matt at Evolve is one of the best to ever do it. He is so well-versed in treatments and techniques. Very knowledgeable. But most importantly, he makes therapy fun. Matt, and the entire staff, are so engaging and kind. I've had to cancel appointments last minute because of headaches that've come up, and they are always so understanding. They truly just want what is best for the patient. You can feel the care and concern every time you walk into their office.

I would give Evolve Physical Therapy and Matt Weissbach 10 stars if I could. He is truly the best. I have had several occasions to use Matt over years for my physical therapy needs. He was so thoughtful and thorough in assessing what my problem was and what was needed to correct the issues. He is very professional and his knowledge of the best treatment options is incredible. His staff is extremely helpful with setting up appointments. Matt has a very practical approach to the treatment process. What was most impressive was his attention to outlining the details of the home exercise program he felt was necessary. He made sure I had all the information to do the exercises at home. He was very good at giving me feed back on how I was progressing. He has such great feel for knowing when to push forward harder and when to back off of the rehab process. I am in the medical field myself. I can honestly say that there is not a better physical therapist that I have ever dealt with then Matt. I highly recommend him without reservation.

Matt Whitaker is my back, pain problem solver! I’ve gone to Matt two different times a couple years apart for severe back issues - pain that was moving all over and even impairing my ability to walk! It was horrible... I started out with my orthopedic surgeon giving me the option of trying PT (physical therapy) or looking at some more drastic measures... I’m not a fan of surgery, or pills, and running is a key part of my life so off to PT I went... Matt was recommended by my orthopedic surgeon and I understand why! Matt is always focused on the source of the pain, not only in my body but how it developed. He addresses the issues systematiclly and ensures my understanding as we go. Matt focuses on progress at the clinic and ensuring it is maintainable once I leave. We’ve had many conversations to figure out behavior, to posture, that lends to my issue and how to change.Couple things about the clinic: it’s super clean, bathrooms are big and stocked with all sorts of items to help you get back in order after PT. They have a large open floor with machines, etc., but my favorite aspects of the clinic are - Private rooms! Yes, a little privacy when you’re talking and they’re working on you! I’ve been to some clinics where the receptionist, waiting room and physical therapist are working with their patients all in the same space (so awkward and embarrassing). Evolve has an online tool that tracks all the exercises, personal comments for you and includes videos so you know exactly how to perform stretches and exercises!Evolve Physical Therapy is top notch. I live in West Sylvan and it’s well worth the drive to Sherwood. I recommend Evolve Physical Therapy anyone who needs a PT!Thank you Matt for keeping me on the trail! 🙂 You’re the best!!
