Ryan Lynch culminated his education in physical therapy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. In the subsequent 20 years, he has consistently worked in the physical therapy field in both inpatient and outpatient settings. This experience has afforded him an extensive knowledge of the entire rehabilitation process, from initial injury and hospitalization to full recovery. More recently, Ryan began to specialize in the treatment of TMJ pain. In the past 7 years, he has undergone extensive training in the field of TMD, jaw pain, and cervicogenic headaches, studying directly under the top physical therapists in this specialty.
Today, Ryan Lynch is an active member of an elite group of physical therapists who are specialized in the treatment of orofacial and associated cervical pain. With the distinction of CCTT, he is one of only 75 physical therapists in North America who have qualified to specialize, through the PTBCCT (Physical Therapy Board of Craniofacial & Cervical Therapeutics) in this unique area. To maintain this specialization, Ryan is required to consistently take additional coursework and monitor research in the area of TMD treatment. Furthermore, Ryan has the distinction of a certification in orofacial dry needling. While dry needling is an advanced skill in physical therapy, Ryan has achieved accreditation on performing this technique to the neck and face. This high-level training allows an extremely comprehensive approach to treatment of TMD and orofacial pain.
