If you tuned into our Poosh Your Wellness spring event then you’ll recognize the team from The Breathe Institute. During their segment, they explained how to incorporate tongue exercises into your daily routine and the beauty benefits of myofunctional therapy. Today, the talented team is walking us through the health, wellness, and functional aspects of the tongue and facial muscles—specifically the joint related to TMJ (formally known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction).
If your jaw clicks or pops when you open your mouth and causes pain to radiate down your face, you most likely suffer from TMJ issues. In the video below, TBI shares how TMJ problems are related to the muscles due to daily habits or swallowing disorders and how myofunctional therapy can help with pain and discomfort (connected to headaches, ear pain, facial pain, popping sound in the jaw, ringing in the ears, dizziness, and neck and shoulder pain). Plus, four at-home exercises you can do to help alleviate the tension—including the proper tongue position.
Watch the educational video and use the tips to be on your way to less jaw pain.
