Locked Jaw? - should I force it open?

Do you have a locked jaw? i.e. you can't open it more than 1 finger width? then you need expert Jaw Physio. If the symptoms are acute (i.e have been present for 1- 3months, you have lots of pain and or swelling), then forcing the jaw open can cause permanent damage to the back fibres of the disc (as they are not elastic) and can stretch so much that the disc will then block the joint more!

In most cases, locked jaw is attributed to the disc bulging forwards and blocking the joint.

Expert therapists have techniques that can help move that joint without putting a lot of pressure on the joint and causing other issues later on in life.
