Re: Muscle spasm without pain?
I have had one X ray done. I took that along to the physiotherapy appointment, he said both discs anteriorly displaced, moreso on the right & that the masseter & lateral pterygoid muscle is guarding (sorry about the spelling). So that's why i cant open my mouth.
He suggested against an arthroscopy & thought that physiotherapy would help, but could take months. He said don't expect a quick fix- I definately don't expect that to happen, I'm not sure if I'll ever be back to normal or partially normal. He gave me some stress management exercises & some mild jaw exercises to do on a daily basis. He basically said that we need to work on my posture because i have forward chin posture, he said this affects the jaw muscles. I have to have my back taped to try and correct my posture. He will do further work on my muscles & joint,he said that he can get the disc to go back, but it will be over a period of time.
