How to Treat ®J and Relieve ®J Pain: Two Easy ®J Exercises that Work

Living with ®J pain is no fun. And getting ®J treatment and ®J pain relief can take time.

Looking for answers about how to relieve ®J pain right now?

Use the ®J exercises below to help relieve your ®J symptoms until you are able to get comprehensive ®J pain treatment.

But remember, as with any body pain, relieving ®J (sometimes called ®D or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) works best when you understand what’s causing it to begin with. So let’s start there.

 

Why do I have ®J?

Several things happen with this disorder that are really posture problems in disguise.

When the head pitches forward, muscles in the face and neck can become tense and other areas of the body can become compressed. The stress of this pain can become focused in the jaw, which causes clenching and pressure.

So fixing your posture can be a big part of the solution to curing ®J.

 

How do I relieve ®J pain?

To get lasting ®J relief, you’ll need to restore the balance in your facial bone structure and remove tension from the muscles in the face and the jaw.

A Reposturing specialist can help design a personalized plan for getting back to a pain-free existence. In the meantime, here are two stretches you can do to get some immediate ®J pain relief:

 

Stretch #1: The Open Jaw Side Stretch

Without moving your head, extend your lower jaw forward, then wide open.

Place the heels of your hands firmly at the back corner of your jaw and push inward.

Next, slide the heels of your hands downward keeping firm pressure as you move them down to the tip of your chin. Repeat this press-and-slide motion three times.

What’s the point?

This stretch will help you improve flexibility in the outer jaw muscles that go from the side of your head and cheekbones down to the sides of your lower jaw.

How’s my form?

Stand upright with your chest lifted. Keep your hands firmly pressing as you move them down towards your chin.

 

Stretch #2: The open jaw pull

This stretch is made up of two separate movements. First, open your jaw forward. Then, open as wide as possible.

From the second position, take three deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your open mouth. Keep your mouth open the entire time.

After three breaths, with your mouth still open, move your jaw back to the center, opening as wide as you can (imagine you’re yawning… open that wide). Breathe three times, in through your nose and out through your mouth. Open wider on your exhale if possible.

What’s the point?

This stretch helps restore flexibility and balance tension in the inner jaw muscles.

How’s my form?

This sequence is about reducing tension and balancing the head weight and minimizing Jaw Tension. Be sure to stand up straight with your chest lifted and shoulders pulled back as you practice it.
