TOP 3 EXERCISES FOR TMJ- Temporomandibular Joint Pain/Disorder


Bob and Brad the two most famous physical therapist on the Internet hi I’m Bob Shrum physical therapist threatening physical therapy here we have the most famous physical therapist on the Internet in our opinion of course you should have a race to see how fast we can see that very good ok today we’re going to talk about top three exercises for TMJ temporal mandibular well disorders actually people call it TMJ and that’s actually TMJ is the joint it’s the name of the joint yeah and temporal mandibular disorders or what happens to it if there’s a problem right right so we just did a video on how to do a kind of a massage to the muscles around the joint that’s something to give you immediate relief right now if you’re trying to you know correct this for the long haul didn’t even want to do the exercises but don’t do these exercises and think well they didn’t work I don’t feel any better they’re going to it’s going to take a while for them to help right so a number of repetitions us will do contract and strengthen and make sure changes that are going to help very now the joint itself is right here if we pull it off here you can see shred pointing it up there how we look at Lani well he’s not saying anything that’s always bad wise not say anything oh yeah that looks pretty good sure all right and what I said we did the massages of the muscles around it but now we’re gonna do some exercises to help strength of that joint and to help put it in the right position sure okay so we’re first going to start off with Brad what you’re going to do is you’re the first exercise you can take your tongue and this is called the resting position it’s the right position putting your jaw in the right position you can take your tongue and you put it on a roof of your mouth behind the front teeth all right yep all right there it take a couple deep breaths with good posture by the way mm-hmm always good posture shoulders back head up and then go ahead and open your mouth six times with the tongue in that place okay I’ll do it from the profile okay we don’t need to do it I feel like a guppy yeah alright that’s the exercise number one the exercise number two is going to start strengthening the stabilizing the muscles okay so you take you two thumbs and put it underneath your chin and you’re going to push down like you’re opening the jaw but you’re not letting the jaw but you’re gonna push down I mean the jaw is pushing down the thumbs are pushing up okay so so I’m going to try and go but right you’re trying to be like yeah so the jobs going that way the fingers are pushing up so it’s an isometric yep six second hold six times don’t let your head come on like good posture at posture okay then you’re going to put your hand on the side and and you’re going to push on your jaw and not let it go out as y’all can go like this so one two three four five six but actually that the force is here now not up right on the bottom on it we call the mandible right so you could actually do it here to make sure you’re not I’m you could do the re but just for demonstration yeah I’m going to push that way my hands maintaining it another isometric and then we’re going to do the other side 1 2 or 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 ok the last three I’m it’s actually 1 but it’s what they’re all grouped into one are for posture Blee drop the position of your head neck and jaw really affect the TMJ sure if you have the head forward posture it is affecting your ability to swallow and it’s affecting the position of the TMJ and how it works right so you really want to work to the point where you’re getting your head you know your ears lined up with your shoulders your head straight up in alright your back basic posture posture that we’ve talked about many other nice so the first one they actually just takes your hands and make like a collar lock the fingers and then you’re holding the skin and then you’re bending forward like this and what that’s doing is it’s stretchy he’s stretching the muscles right here under the occiput here right where the hip neck meets the head so actually you can keep together bandages and foreign like that you feel that stretch up yeah okay the next one is chin tucks which we’ve done many times so yeah go ahead so it’s like you’re backing your head up and again you’re stretching this and you’re getting your neck and head into the right position right basic posture strong pressure off pressure on pusher ah like Brad always says it’s like someone’s throwing a pie in your face yeah you’re not going like this right you’re not going like this you’re going back right okay and the last one is shoulder squeezes which we’ve done a million times are putting your shoulders to bleeds together and trying to put them in your back pockets yep so I must have gotten a little high huh it’s amazing nothing I could heal on you raise the camera yeah so these pastoral exercises covers so many things as they do even jaw neck arms so if you’re having two key mkay problems try those things first you know those are things you can do yourself and then if you have troubles you know you want to see a dentist who’s you know trained in this orthodontist Tercel right right right they can make you splints and there’s pillows and all the things you’d like to avoid so maybe these are going to help and avoid that give this a try and I’ll link towards our last video here at the end of the one we did on massage so they all go together don’t they bless they do yep you agree all right dude all right thanks for watching that’s incredible Bob you could be a ventriloquist you

    Thanks for the advice 😃I have such bad TMJ and I didn’t know that so many people have it too! It helps with the irritating pain, popping and locking

    Does this exercise effect deep bite ?

  6. Bethany S. says:

    Thank you for clearing that up. As a dental hygienist, people tell me daily that they have TMJ when their jaws crack or click. I’ve given up correcting some people 😂

    Fish oil with omega 3 helps a lot!

    3 years spent in hell with this jaw pain (which involved not only jaw but whole left side of my face). 2 times a day did these exercises. On 5th day i was moving my jaw just to get any kind of pain relief and suddenly my jaw made some sound, like it got back to it’s original place. And after that all pain was gone!!! (not instantly, but in 3-5 hours). And i went to all kinds of doctors, everyone said that my jaw was ok, and that problem should be in tooth/eye etc…
    God bless you, i can’t thank you more! Now i can live without being distracted with this unbearable pain! Ignore other content people, i tried many other exercises. These are most effective!!!

    this is relative to bruxism, I clench my teeth all the time and it's bad for my teeth, the enmel gets worn out and I have constant tooth cavities and constant tooth pains.

    I suggest this TMJ treatment https://t.co/gTGbrigL4Q to all my patients who`ve got TMJ . I have to inform you that most my own patients come back astonished with how much greater they feel through following the instructions in this program. I have found this program to be way more valuable than all the materials I have accumulated..

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge! I've had a headache for 1 week now and I already feel some relief.

    Thank you! I have been miserable for a few weeks. The chiropractor did all he could, my dentist said all I can do is ice it and take muscle relaxants (but I won’t take pills). This gave me some immediate relief; hopefully if I continue it throughout the day and coming days, it will unlock my jaw completely. Thank you!
