Re: Does TMJ affect your ability to take punches?
Hi there, I disagree that there aren't any foolproof ways to readjust the jaw to correct TMJ disorder. If you find a chiropractor or physical therapist who does craniosacral therapy, an osteopathic physician who does cranial osteopathy, or a certified doctoral level craniosacral therapist, your bound to get your jaw fixed in 3 treatments or fewer. If you can find a craniosacral therapist who is certified but not doctoral level, they should be a good choice as well, but if they are not certified you may be taking your chances, there's such a wide variation in training level between the non-certified practitioners and you don't always know what your getting. Get your jaw fixed now and as you go with the MMA, get your jaw readjusted as you need it. And see how your jaw withstands the test of face punches. There's no definite answer about whether the TMJ will be a reoccurring issue or not, particularly if you see someone to address the issue before you get started fighting in a serious capacity.
