Heya abby320. There are seminars offered now for them specifically for tmjd. One thing you might could ask is if they have attended one of them. I think the advice above is good too. If you aren't going to surgeon for a while.. pt might be a risky thing to do... might do more harm than good. There are other things you could do such as ice and muscle relaxers to ease your suffering in the meantime. Things that wouldn't necessarily risk more damage.
