Health Tip: Coping With TMJ
Take it easy on your jaw

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Temporomandibular joint disorders, medically called TMJ, are a group of conditions that make it painful to move the jaw and nearby muscles.

The U.S. National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research offers these suggestions for coping with TMJ:

  • Eat foods that are soft and easy to chew.
  • Use ice packs on your jaw.
  • Don't chew gum, yawn widely or sing loudly.
  • Talk to your healthcare provider about gentle jaw stretches that may help.
