    Hi Tom,
    Ive just downloaded Katherines TMJ-Help E book….very unsure if Ive done the right thing. Its very disheartening to see photos of someone doing the excersises with such a wide open mouth!! My main problem is a clicking jaw, no pain. Should I go ahead? I also d/loaded the excersises on this website, are they additional or optional. Sorry just desperate and a bit confused,
    Thanks

      Hi Audrey,

      Don’t be disheartened by photos like that. If you can’t open your mouth that wide, that’s ok; do what you are comfortable with. The exercises and stretches are designed to improve your jaw mobility.

      The exercises I sent out are optional and aren’t really related to Katherine’s program. But they are still beneficial and I’d recommend them if they don’t cause you any pain. The TMJ help program is a much more well built and thought out treatment plan. Hopefully it will do the job for you and get your jaw running smoothly (and quietly) again :)

      So to sum up, go ahead and try them and see how it goes. Remember to see your doctor or dentist if you’ve got any pain. I hope it works out for you.

      Tom

    Hi Tom, I’ve been doing the exercises and have some relief. I did several months ago lose my hearing for a short period of time and it was scary. I will continue with the exercises and thank you for all the information you send. Barbara

    When I started the TMJ exercises about 12 days ago I was in so much pain I couldn’t eat any real food. I thought I broke something. After the first day of exercises I felt a slight improvement. I read more about other peoples experience with pain (just like mine) & their improvements. I’m so glad I came across this information. Thank you, thank you, thank you

    Hi Tom,
    I have had TMJ since the age of 13. I am so hopeful these exercises are the answer to 43 years of this annoying problem. The clicking, locking, and sometimes soreness is just to the point that I looked into your website. Thank-you for this, I just finished my first round and feel like I am on my way to some relief.After eating some very rustic bread today, I felt like a sledge hammer hit my jaw. I was scared and knew it was time to seek answers. I think you are the answer to my prayers!

    Sincerely,
    Nancy

    I was treated for severe Tetanus in 11/12. The hospital and Drs wrote me off but I survived, and in the last 2 yrs I have been dealing severe pain in my jaw, Dr said it was the TMJ. The Dr has been treating me with injections every 9-14 wks apart. It help somewhat but still in pain. My Dr has no more answers for me. Is there anything or anyone that could help me. My biggest problem the Tetanus was a work related injury and No Drs around me would accept Comp

    This is amazing! After two days of my jaw popping and about to schedule an appointment with the doctor which is an all day event I came across your website and these exercises. I tried the 3 passive exercises and the first 2 assisted stretching exercises. After my first complete set, about 10 minutes, my jaw felt better and was almost back to normal.
    You guys Rock! Definitely unexpected but awesome.

    Thank You
    James A.
