Keywords: Physiotherapy, Pain, Exercise Program

The treatment of jaw pain is often related to the neck joints and the jaw joint. Treamtent of both is usually essential, along with a dentists review to see if a night splint is appropriate. Special exercises really help strengthen specific jaw muscles (not chewing on a cork - very old fashioned exercise). Often sitting at the hair dresser for a long time with your head in the shampoo'ing bowl can cause this pain, or even a long visit at the dentist with your head tipped backwards for a long procedure. Make sure you talk to your therapits and let them know you need a rest.
