my jaw exercises

I was injured when I was younger; my cheek bones were injured really badly. Since then I haven't been able to open my mouth fully. When I try it hurts.
I have visited the doctor here in the jersey city, but they said I need therapy but it didn't help.

Can you recommend something? Exercise or medicine?

Hello Zakia,
You can try the exercises at this chiropractic website for a few weeks; do them gently, and remember it shouldn't hurt. Don't try to force your jaw open.

Frankly you need professional help from someone who works regularly with jaw joint pain; start doing your homework and see if you can find a good chiropractor who knows about the TMJ.

It may be difficult by the sounds of things. Injuries of this nature often leave a permanent mark on you.
