HEADACHES and JAW PAIN

5 Simple Tips to REDUCE Pain!

Here are five simple lifestyle tips to reduce pain and discomfort:

  • Stop slouching! Proper posture and ergonomics can reduce the stress off the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
  • Relax and address clenching and grinding of teeth. Stress is a main contributor to clenching the jaw and increasing tension in the TMJ.
  • Heat/Cold – Cold can numb pain receptors and decrease swelling. Heat can also provide relief from pain and increase soft tissue mobility.
  • Adjust diet – Eating softer foods puts less stress on the joint. Avoid gum, heavy chewing, big sandwiches, etc. and opt for softer foods like oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies and soups instead.
  • Exercise – Physical Therapist can help you implement an exercise program – utilizing stretching, massage, and gentle strengthening exercises.

New Year… Old You?

Q: “Am I ever going to feel normal again?”

A: “Yes, you’re going to recover and return to normal activity.”

We understand musculoskeletal injuries can be frustrating. However, by implementing both stretching and strengthening exercises that address your injury; you can get back to what you enjoy.

For example, 90% of people who experience an episode of low back pain are feeling back to normal in 6 weeks. Neck pain and other joint issues are similar in recovery. Of course with some injuries recovery may be longer or require surgery but with persistent effort, appropriate early medical care and physical therapy we see excellent recovery rates and patient satisfaction.
