😱 Jaw Pain 😱

Do you ever experience pain in your jaw from chewing, yawning, or with small mouth opening movements?

These symptoms will often produce a poping or clicking sensation when you open and close your mouth, or you become unable to open your mouth as far as usual.

The above signs and/or symptoms, are associated with what is known as a temporomandibular disorder (TMD), or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction.

Interestingly, the jaw is not always the main contrubutor to this condiiton. However, the neck is often the culpruit due to dysfunction in your ability to properly move and stabilize the structures in your neck!

In any case, you will be happy to know that we offer treatment for TMJ, TMD, and jaw pain. Here are a few examples of treatment options and exercises you can perform at home as well.

Let us know if you have any questions in the comments below! 👇

What is Blood Flow Restriction training and how could it benefit you?

Blood flow restriction (BFR) training is a method in which arterial blood flow is partially restricted resulting in a decreased oxygen supply for the affected muscles. Research indicates potential benefits of BFR training include increasing muscle mass, strength, and endurance all while exercising under a relatively lower resistance. By loading the muscles in an environment of decreased oxygen and increased pressure, the musculature is forced to adapt and improve. The possibilities for BFR training are very exciting and can carry over into many populations including post-op cases with weight bearing restrictions as well. Getting to train the muscle with low impact activities while using BFR is a great way to get ahead of the curve with your post-op recovery.

The bicep curl is a fantastic way to help address anterior shoulder stability. In fact, part in the bicep inserts directly into the labrum of the shoulder directly so training this muscle effectively is a great way to help address possible clunking or popping in the shoulder.

Push-ups: These are a fantastic exercises for developing anterior shoulder stability within the pectorals and anterior deltoid but also posterior stability within the triceps. It’s a functional plyometric exercise that your body will learn to love with time. Start with 10 push-ups a day and work up to 50 if you can!

Isometric Kettlebell Shoulder Press: This exercise is a fantastic way to activate your rotator cuff, posterior deltoid, and rhomboids. Far too often do we find ourselves in poor shoulder posture throughout our day with shoulders rounded and sagged forward. This exercise helps keep those shoulders pulled back and your posture in a more neutral position.

Barbell Overhead Press: This is one of the most functional exercises out there for shoulder stability in general. It does a great job of forcing the entire shoulder to work as a unit to accomplish this movement. The rotator cuff, deltoids, pectorals, lats, and tricep are all working in unison which is a great way to train your shoulder. If the movement is painful then go with lighter weight!
