I am so excited to share this video with you because the research is clear. When you are trying to help your TMJ dysfunction (TMD), self-care WITH postural training is more effective for correction and symptom relief than TMJ self-care by itself. -Wright et al. (2000) “A combination of exercise and manual therapy, correction of body posture, and relaxation techniques significantly alleviates jaw pain, restricted movement, and impairment.” -Nikolakis et al. (2001) state, The combined method of rehab is needed because this posture/TMJ connection can present with symptoms like weakness in your deep cervical neck flexor muscles, jaw “popping”, jaw “clicking”, Forward Head Posture (FHP), trigger points in your trapezius and levator scapula muscles, orofacial pain, decreased ability to fully open your mouth, suboccipital tightness, ear pain, headaches and more.

You are going to go through strong posture exercises that are core focused and strong posture exercises that address forward head posture. For these, it is best if you have a wall to lean against. Then we will do some of my favorite stretching and manual therapy movements for your muscles of mastication like your temporalis and masseter muscles. Finally, as the research indicates, we will relax and focus on gratitude.Pair this with one of my other TMJ videos per day and, if you still need more help, book a telehealth or in-person appointment through my website by clicking “book online”www.fieldsfamilychiro.comTMJ Exercises #1https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EM18snVgV_cTMJ Exercises #2https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS4O2dbCJc8TMJ Exercises #3https://youtu.be/o_mHqmmUgM8TMJ Exercises #4https://youtu.be/8qh6DjXJxTQ.
