I spent Saturday 27th February 2021 on an update course with the ACPTMD for the TMJ (jaw). It was good to refresh anatomy knowledge and discuss cases with colleagues. This prompted a reminder post for good habits for TMJ sufferers!

  • Don’t bite nails or chew gum
  • Don’t sleep on tummy
  • Maintain good neck posture
  • Keep tongue on roof of mouth when you sneeze
  • Keep mouth relaxed (good position is the last “a” when saying Emma)
  • Keep tongue on roof of mouth to relax muscles (the “cl” of cluck)

If you want to talk through a jaw issue…please do contact me for an informal chat… Jo x
