What You Can Do To Help Yourself?

  • Posture awareness and correction: Make sure you’re sitting upright with your chin parallel to the floor. This will help reduce tension in your muscles and help open up your airway passages.
  • Breathing exercises: Deep breathing can help relax the muscles of the jaw, neck, and shoulders, as well as open up blocked airways. Try doing some simple breathing exercises such as diaphragmatic breathing, box breathing, and the 4-7-8 technique.
  • Jaw stretches: Doing stretching exercises for your jaw can help relax tense muscles and improve blood flow to the area. Try opening your mouth wide and holding it for 10 seconds at a time, or gently massaging the areas around your jaw.
  • Relaxation techniques: Stress and tension can worsen TMJ/Airway Dysfunction symptoms, so it’s important to find ways to relax. Try yoga, mindfulness meditation, or progressive muscle relaxation.
  • Limit activities that increase muscle tension in the area of the jaw, neck, and head: Avoid activities that cause you to clench your jaw, such as chewing gum or grinding your teeth. You may also want to limit activities that require extended periods of time in one position, like watching TV or using a computer.
  • Visit a physical therapist: A physical therapist can help you with postural alignment, breathing exercises, jaw stretches, and relaxation techniques. A physical therapist can also give you more specific exercises and stretches to help alleviate your symptoms.

I highly recommend Jason at R3 Physio. I am so much healthier now than I was even a few years ago! I am able to do things physically that I thought might be gone forever. Jason will educate you on ways you can be healthier with compassion and encouragement. The way the treatments work is hard to explain but it doesn’t hurt, and you feel much better. You will never feel judged at this place. It is understandable why some of us with chronic health struggles would be tempted to give up. However, Never give up on yourself, just go see Jason for help.

R3 Physio is incredible! Jason is one of the most attentive, and knowledgeable physical therapists I’ve come across. He actually listened to me and my pain and made sure I was comfortable during the session. (I suffer from horrid chronic pain). After leaving his office, I got in my car with relief which hadn’t been done in almost a year. There’s no reason to look around for another PT, Jason is amazing and I can’t recommend R3 Physio enough.
