Jaw Exercises for TMJ Pain in Malaysia

Place one to two fingers on both sides of your jaw. Apply a gentle pressure against the jaw while try to open the mouth slowly without letting it clicks. Repeat the exercise again if the jaw clicks in the middle of the procedure. Repeat this exercise without clicking of the jaw for 10 times. This exercise allows a better control of your jaw movements and the gentle pressure applied helps to correct the jaw misalignment.

Another exercise that can increase the mobility of the jaw while allowing better rotation of the jaw. Place the tongue against the roof of your mouth and slowly open your mouth as wide as you can. Hold for 2 seconds while breathing in slowly. However, the tongue should remain in contact with the roof of your mouth throughout the whole exercise. Repeat the exercise for 10 times.

Strengthening exercises for the jaw muscles are needed to make sure the temporomandibular joint has the stability and mobility to perform all the movements required. Isometric strengthening exercises can strengthen the jaw muscles while relaxing the muscles on the opposite side. Make a fist and place it under your chin. Open your mouth slowly while the fist is applying a gentle upwards force under the chin. This upwards force should resist the opening of the mouth. Hold the pressure for 10 seconds. Repeat this exercise for 10 times.


The next exercise is similar to the one described above. Place the left hand on the left side of your face. Move your jaw to the left side against the left hand while applying a gentle force to the right with your left hand. Hold for 10 seconds and repeat the procedure on the right side.
