Relapse of limited opening after procedures?!

Does anyone have experience with relapse of limited opening after having procedures such as arthocentesis or arthroscopy? If so- what happened- did it take place gradually and /or were you able to regain opening you had after procedure? Were you able to gain any further opening?
Experiences please! Need help!
Thanks
yogi

Re: Relapse of limited opening after procedures?!

Limited opening can have various causes.

One is that the more to the front the disc is displaced the more limited the opening. Another is that with TMJ dysfunction the masticatory musles go into a state of hyperactivity and contract, this can also limit opening.

There is a jaw rehab sytem called Therabite which is very effective in countering muscle contraction and so increasing opening - I've gone from 47mm to 55mm and I'm told this means the muscles are finding their 'resting length'
