TMJ Syndrome (TMD) results from overactive muscles of biting and chewing -- from loss of ability to relax those muscles. That's why you can't open your mouth widely; why your jaw movements are uneven (bite deviation); why you grind your teeth (bruxism, jaw clenching), why you have jaw pain, earaches, accelerated wear of the teeth, cracked rear molars, popping and clicking, and neck pain.

Tooth pain, a blow to the jaw, and/or dental work all cause TMJ Syndrome (TMD) by conditioning your muscles of biting and chewing to stay tight and to move your jaws involuntarily.

Remember how you avoided chewing with a certain tooth that hurt, how your chewing changed protectively immediately after dental work, how you tensed during dental work in your jaws and neck?

If you noticed that TMJ dysfunction developed shortly thereafter, do you believe it's coincidence? Had you made the connection? New and lasting chewing movements and muscular tensions form during such periods and events, particularly if they are intense.

Get better control of your own muscles of biting and chewing.

Being a professional in the field of somatics has not protected me from my own problems. In fact, solving my own problems (when no one else had a lasting solution -- or any solution), has led me to develop a number of instructional self-relief programs -- including this one.

While getting a tooth crown, I noticed how I involuntarily tensed my neck muscles (and other places) during the procedure, how sore my muscles on the left inside of my jaw felt for days after, and how I chewed more on one side than the other both because of the soreness and because the temporary crown kept coming off during meals.

I could see how dental work led to a bite deviation and a "catch" when closing my jaws, cracked teeth, and sleep apnea (blocked breathing that causes one to awaken, gasping for breath due to jaw position).

Being a professional, I explored my own problem. I developed and refined exercises until I had an way out of the problem. That's this program. I no longer have a bite deviation or a catch when closing my jaws -- and neither do clients of mine with whom I have used this approach.

I was wondering which product do you recommend for knee pain/weakness.

Thanks,

Your jaw exercises are a real blessing.

Hi Lawrence

The session yesterday was spot on! My jaw and head seem much more aligned.

I will focus on the seated, less sophisticated jaw release until I become more mobile (with a 1 handed jaw hold).

Thanks for the work

I have organized this program into a series of methodical lessons to eliminate muscular contractions and involuntary actions that constitute TMD, free you from pain, and increase your freedom of jaw movement.

Each exercise leads logically into the next; each exercise prepares you for the next exercise.

OVERVIEW

Numerous approaches address TMJ Dysfunction/TMD -- splints, electrical stimulation, dental surgery, massage of the jaw muscles, stretching. You're probably familiar, by now, with at least some of these approaches.

As well-meaning as their practitioners or advocates may be, for any of these approaches to work, they must retrain our control of those muscles. If they don't, old patterns of control work against any therapeutic intervention, tend to re-assert themselves throughout the entire course of therapy, and change very slowly. Mechanical solutions or the protection of a mouth guard produce pretty slow changes, don't they? Have you had that experience?

So to change how your biting and chewing muscles function efficiently, we have to change how your brain controls their movement and tension, and that involves movement training, which is brain-level learning.

Our jaws move in three basic directions:

  • opening / closing
  • right / left (grinding)
  • forward / backward (grinding and opening/closing)
So, a thorough training program must include all those directions of movement, plus their integration in the complex movements of chewing and also speaking, which involves finely controlled jaw movements.

WHITE SPACE

Somatic Education Exercise 1
Freeing Opening and Closing

First Step: Learn graded control of opening and closing movements.

TMJ Step 1 working positionThe muscles of biting and chewing coordinate closely with the muscles at the rear-top of the neck/base of the head. When you reach forward with your mouth to take a bite, these muscles are involved.

Note: This exercise does not address bite deviations or one sided jaw pain. Later exercises in this program do so.

Somatic Education Exercise 2
Side-to-Side Movements

Second Step: Free and equalize side-to-side grinding movements of chewing.

TMJ Step 2 working positionThis exercise uses a head-turned position to engage both the jaw and neck muscles, both of which are affected by trauma-conditions that lead to TMD.

Somatic Education Exercise 3
Side-to-side, Face-Forward

Third Step: Equalize grinding jaw movements in the face-forward position.

TMJ Step 3 working positionHaving dealt with enmeshed neck and jaw movements during grinding movements, we now deal specifically with the grinding movement in the head position typical of most chewing.

Somatic Education Exercise 4
Forward-Backward Movements

Fourth Step: Develop or restore the ability to open the jaws widely.

TMJ Step 4 working positionMovement of the lower jaw forward is part of opening the mouth widely, as in biting an apple.

Tight muscles of forward-backward movement prevent opening widely.

Somatic Exercise 5
All Directions

Fifth Step: Integrating movements in all directions.

TMJ Step 5 working positionChewing and speech involve free movements in various directions. You now test and refine all movements.

A Clinical Session
Hands-on Techniques

The Faster, Easier Alternative:
Major Improvement in a 1-hour session
Complete Resolution in four 1-hour sessions

Clinical sessions use techniques that work faster than somatic exercises, based on the same principles as somatic exercises: involuntary muscular habits become free, comfortable control of movement.

Advantages:

  • PRECISION: A clinical practitioner guides you to exact movements and positions getting free of your condition requires.
  • SPEED: Hands-on techniques work faster.
  • EASE: Having someone guide you is easier than finding your own way, yourself.
