Dom McKay musculoskeletal therapist in
this video I’m going to be talking to you about the jaw and I’m gonna be
showing you ways of mobilizing it and massaging it yourself so if you’re
getting any of these TMJ type pains like jaw pain or your you’ve got neck and
shoulder issues that seem to be really persistent then treating the jaw is a
really good way of of releasing a lot of these pains now the jaw is quite
intricately connected with what goes on in your neck and shoulders so it’s it’s
a part of the puzzle with neck and shoulder pain that is missed by some
practitioners so to work on this jaw were actually just going to use our
fingers we won’t be using any tools at all for this so begin by placing your
fingers just on the joint of your jaw here so where where you feel the
movement is so that’s where I want you to find those sort of meaty muscles that
are around that area so you if you poke around a little bit you’ll feel the most
intense parts and the most areas that give you the most intense sensation is
where you want to hold so you’re just pressing into those points and just
exploring through the jaw so I’ll turn slightly to the side here so you can see
more easily now you don’t need a lot of pressure for this just needs to be
gentle pressure and then what I want you to do is explore just around the the
back of the jaw here now if you poked in just under the ear you’ll find some
quite intense sensations there so just want you to hold a finger in there you
might feel pain referring into your head into your face that means that you’ve
got some good spots there okay so once you’ve spent a good couple
of minutes exploring through all those areas that I just explained we can start
to do some stretches and some some a meaty muscle energy technique work on
the jaw so to begin with let’s um let’s stretch the jaw sideways so what we’re
gonna do is we’re gonna move that door to the side and then we’re going to
resist with a counter force against our hand so pushing the jaw to the side and
then pushing it back against our hands gently and then for about three to five
seconds and then just relaxing and allowing the jaw to migrate further to
that side so pushing the jaw to the side and we resist and relax now you want to
do that for a couple of a couple two to three times each side so we do it on the
other side as well so pushing the jaw to the side resist and relax and the jaw will already start
to feel a little bit looser now the next thing we’re gonna do is opening up the
mouth as wide as we can and then placing the hand on the chin you can put it in
your mouth if you really want to get a good grip placing the hands on the chin
and now resist against the force of the hand and then relax allow the tool to
open up and again you can do this for two to two three times and at the end of
this sequence you’ll really start to feel like your jaw has loosened up and
that will affect your whole neck and shoulders
