Are Your Jaw Joints Jammed
If you suffer from TMJ, you've probably come here after researching the subject for a while. The reason you're here is that you've found no reliable method. You have visited lots of information sites, maybe read some books and they all say the same thing:
There is no real cure for TMJ.
Your doctor is probably doing his best to relief your pain. He has most likely subscribed you strong pain relief pills. Maybe some muscle relaxation medications too. But that's it.
No more he can do.
You quickly get immune to the pain killers and they don't work for you any more. Maybe they never eased your pain at all.
Some dentist specialize in TMJ. They put a dental implant in your mouth. It may well be worth getting these implants. They may save you from grinding your teeth at night. But most likely, they won't relief your pain.
The traditional health system has no cure for TMJ!
One of the reason why it has been so difficult to find cure for TMJ, is how complex this condition is. There is probably no single cause for all cases of TMJ. There are rather combinations of several causes. And the causes are probably both physical and emotional.
Intense stress, grief, or anger often trigger TMJ. So can injuries (from a car accident for example).
You may not even have noticed it when you accidentally bumped into something. Few days later, you began to feel this pain in your jaw.
There is often no way of knowing what originally triggered your TMJ.
Okay, that's enough. Lets talk about what we DO KNOW!
We do know that the Jaw joints are always misplaced in some way. It's sometimes sever, other times it's minor misplacement. The effects can be extremely painful and irritating at the same time...
...are just few obvious symptoms. You may have some or all of them. Or non at all. Like I said, this is very complicated condition.
What we also know is that the muscles around the jaw are always tense. Sometimes they're torn a little, sometimes they're sore, but they're always tense. Weak, tense muscles do not support the jaw in the right way and will actually push it out of position, making this big part of the problem.
This is similar to what happens with back problems. The back muscles are stiff and weak to begin with. Then something happens, which puts strain on the back. Maybe working in a wrong position or small injury. It didn't really feel very bad in the beginning.
As self defense, the back muscles get tense to avoid the pain. This is unconscious and uncontrollable. That's why you often see people with back problem walk bent. The back pain becomes chronic when, the tension in the back muscles actually push the spine out of place. What was only supposed to be temporarily pain relief has caused serious condition.
I'm telling you this because TMJ develops the same way.
Your TMJ may have began as minor problem like short period of intense feelings or light bump on the jaw. Then as your jaw muscles get more tens and push the jaw out of position, it has developed into a major condition.
This is the beginning of series of other problems.
Now the two jaw joints do not cooperate together. They're unbalanced and uncontrollable. It shouldn't really come as surprise that everything gets stuck. The pain is unbearable. It's like begin constantly tortured.
It's inevitable that some nerves get squeezed when the joints are misplaced. The nerves that control your balance system, for example, are directly connected to nerves around the jaw. This is partly what causes your headaches and also dizziness and lack of balance.
All the muscles in your body are connected. If one gets tense, all the muscles around that one become tense too. You've probably, for example, felt your shoulders and neck get stiffer as your TMJ grows worse.
Less noticeable is the tension in all the small muscles in your head. Including your other face muscles, tongue, throat and even eyes. You may also feel like your throat is narrower now than before (you're not crazy it's true).
As this tension builds up little by little, you'll begin to feel the secondary symptoms of TMJ. Including...
...plus hundreds of other secondary symptoms!
The only way to reverse the development of TMJ and heal your self is to loosen up and strengthen both the jaw muscles and all the muscles around the jaw.
This does actually not require hard effort tough. The exercises are simple and easy to do. But you have to practice them if they're are going to work for you.
1)Working directly on the jaw muscles strengthen and loosens them up. Healthy jaw muscles guide the jaw joints into right position instead of misplacing them.
2)The tongue is a strong muscle. Many people have lot of tension in this muscle for some reason. It's very important to relies the tension in the tongue, using simple tongue exercises. Remember all muscles are connected. Tension in tongue means tension in jaw and vs.
3)Most people never pay any attention to the muscles around the throat. These muscles play, however, a very important role in your body's function and need to be fit. The throat exercises will do just that. (see secondary throat symptoms).
4)There is almost no separation between the neck and shoulders and jaw muscles. If one is stiff, the others tense up immediately. That makes the neck and shoulder exercises as important as the direct jaw exercises.
5)The breathing exercises will nurture and loosen up all the muscles in your head. What's more, they'll will also relief any emotional stress built up in your muscles. You'll be amazed how effective they're.
Thousands of people have already used these exercises to permanently cure their TMJ. Considering how complex this condition is, it's amazing how well they work for many people.
I'm going to be totally honest with you.
You won't be totally pain free over night (although it's amazing how quickly these exercises sometimes work). It will take some time to reverse the tension that has been building up in your muscles for long time (even before you noticed any symptoms.
It will also take some time for your jaw to gain the strain to guide your jaw joints into their healthy, natural position.
The fact remains, this is the only method proven effective to heal TMJ. Nothing else helps!
