When a neck problem doesn't resolve, it may be that the leg muscles have not been properly evaluated and treated. Your physio should have taken out a goniometer and measured your pelvic angle for anterior rotation. Excessive anterior rotation of the pelvis is caused by tight leg muscles in the front of the thigh, the quadriceps muscles. Pelvic anterior rotation leads to a forward head posture. The forward head posture creates and/or perpetuates excessive tension and spasm in the tmj muscles. If the physio treats only the neck, you have a therapist who is chasing symptoms and doesn't get the whole picture, however well trained, well-meaning, caring and skilled. The physio may just be doing what they know and have never been trained or taught to see that tmj for many people is a whole-body syndrome.
