Tmj from weightlifting fixable?
Has anyone here caused their tmj through weightlifting like me? And if so in theory shouldn't it be reversable? You see mine stems from screwing up my posture (upper cross syndrome) from heavy weight chest, shoulder and arm exercises. I don't have clicking or popping, nor do I have an off bite from dental work. What I do have is a lower jaw that deviates when I open my mouth. It slants to the left where I damaged my neck,back,shoulder.Now I'm working with an osteopath, tmj chiropractor that uses ART system plus my own exercises to correct my posture. Obviously I wouldn't expect results fast years of poor posture( labtop and desk job) plus weighttraining destroyed my posture so it should take a few years to reverse. Is my theory plausible and realistic?? The tmj doc that checked me out said from the structural side disks, cartalidge etc seem fine, teeth A1 and bite dead on. Mine seems muscular and he gave me muscle relaxers and told me not to lift. OHHH and obviously I've stopped weight training
