Are Your Jaw Joints Locked
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.
The only thing doctors can do is give out strong pain relief medicines or muscle relaxation drugs. There is nothing else they can do.
All these medicines fail. Even if they reduce the pain a little for a while in the beginning, they'll stop working little by little as your body gets immune to them.
Your dentists may try his best to help you by making a dental implant. These implants are mostly meant to save your teeth from grinding down. It is not a permanent cure and usually doesn't relief the pain, although it may be well worth it to save your teeth.
The traditional health system has no cure for TMJ!
You can't really blame them tough.
TMJ is one of the most complex conditions you'll ever find.
Every TMJ patient has different original causes for his or her condition. And not only one cause or accident. There are probably several contributing factors causing your pain. Both physical and emotional.
Some people begin to experience TMJ after an accident of some sort. Stress is an other trigger. But most of the time, doctors have no idea what really causes their patients TMJ. This can be very depressive for people who suffer this condition.
Okay, that's enough. Lets talk about what we DO KNOW!
What we know for a fact about TMJ is, the jaw joints are always misplaced in some way. It doesn't necessarily have to be complete misplacement (although sometimes it is). Small wrong misplacement can be enough. And the symptoms can be both nerve racking and painful...
... just to name few.
Here is another fact we know: The jaw muscles are always very stiff. They're sometimes, not always, soar, or torn. But they're always stiff.
The pressure from your tense jaw muscles pushes your jaw further out of position. It supports its misplacement. This makes your problem way worse than it has to be.
The same thing happens when people suffering back problems. The back muscles are weak and tense. The problem may have begun by putting too much strain on the back or working in a wrong position. Or it may have begun with a small injury that didn't seem so bad at the time.
To avoid the mild pain, the muscles in the back get tense. It jut happens. This is a function nature gave us to deal with pain. The real problem begins when the tension in the back muscles push the spine (even just a little bit) out of place. What should only have been minor problem if the person had exercised and strengthen the back muscles, is now chronic, 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, of course, causes series of 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.
Nerves get squeezed. Either directly by the misplaced jaw or the tense muscles around it. The same nerves lie around the jaw as the ears. The same nerves that control the balance system. That's why you may experience dizziness or lack or balance for example?
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.
You may not have noticed how all the small muscles in your head (including the throat muscles, tongue, and eyes) have more tension in them now than they did before. This is serious.
You don't have to imagine all the secondary symptoms this indirect tension from the jaw is creating. You're experiencing some or all of them yourself...
...plus hundreds of other secondary symptoms!
There is no way to heal your TMJ, unless you loosen up and strengthen all the muscles connected to the jaw and the jaw muscles.
This can be done using simple, jet very powerful exercises:
1)The jaw exercises are self explained. They strengthen and loosen up the jaw muscles directly, so the muscles will not push the jaw joint out of place but guide them into right position.
2)The tongue exercises, loosen up the tongue muscle. Even healthy people have too much tension in their tongue. People who suffer from TMJ are way off balance there.
3)You probably noticed how many of the secondary symptoms had something to do with the throat. You'll feel a whole lot better after you practise the throat exercises for few days.
4)The neck and shoulder muscles are directly connected to the Jaw muscles. These muscles are usually the first one to freeze when the jaw muscles get stiff. They can, however, easily be put back into regular function using powerful neck and shoulder exercises.
5)All muscles need oxygen to function properly. Stiff muscles, reduce the amount of oxygen they can process. Using specially designed breathing exercises, you can bring these muscles back to life, so they may begin to function properly again.
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.
But before you celebrate, let me be brutally 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.
The exercises rebuild your jaw function little by little.
The the muscles around the jaw must first regain their old strength and flexibility. Then the jaw muscle will guide your jaw joints into their natural healthy position. This usually happens slowly and gradually.
The fact remains, this is the only method proven effective to heal TMJ. Nothing else helps!
