“Doctor, the pain in the left side of my jaw is killing me!”, the father of two complained.
The dentist nodded reluctantly and said, “You’ve most likely got TMJ, it’s a stress related condition affecting the jaw area, here’s what I recommend you do…”.
What Did The Dentist Say Next?
This dentist wasn’t like most other dentists, he suggested something that alot of people don’t know about.
TMJ Jaw Exercises
He said the exercises will strengthen and stretch certain muscles in your body which will relieve stress on the muscles that are causing your jaw pain. They will only take about 10 – 15 minutes to do, but they will have to be done daily for about 2 – 3 weeks.
After getting this advice, the father took got a list of specialised exercises and went home and started straight away. He thought they would be a lot more complicated than they were and the massages felt great and some of the pain disappeared instantly.
He was so happy he let out an excited yelp and accidentally opened his mouth too wide. A bit too early for that he thought. Doing the exercises every day turned out to be a breeze and it was barely a week later when he called his dentist and told him the pain in the left side of his jaw had completely disappeared.
