Do you suffer from jaw pain or jaw joint pain? We've got the right exercises for you.
Jaw pain is caused by mental stress or jawbone misalignment (craniomandibular dysfunction). Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can be the cause. Begin your exercise routine to combat jaw pain to prevent damage to your chewing system.
Jaw pain often occurs due to tight and shortened chewing muscles. We recommend ruling out dental and orthodontic causes first.
2-3 times a week
Perform the exercises for jaw pain 2-3 times a week.
Timely jaw pain treatment by relaxing the muscles and connective tissue can help prevent jaw pain.
Place the BLACKROLL® MICRO on the upper part of your temple and move it back and forth, all the way down to your jaw joint. Work multiple areas using this method.
Locate the jaw joint using your finger and place the BLACKROLL® TWISTER here. Keeping your mouth relaxed, gently press against it and slowly rotate the TWISTER in both directions.
Turn your head and locate the sternocleidomastoid muscle (neck muscle). Using your thumb and index finger, grip the muscle directly under your ear. Massage the muscle from top to bottom. Target trigger points using your fingertips.
Move your lower jaw in a figure of eight motion. Gradually increase the size of the movements.
Place one hand on the cup of your chin. Place the other hand directly on top. Pull your lower jaw down as far as it will go and hold the stretch for a few seconds.
