I have been in the process of receiving treatment for TMJ for a few months now. Three weeks ago my jaw locked closed and I could only open it 20cm. They gave me a splint to wear which has helped with the pain but it is still clearly locked. The passed 2-3 days, when the pain is not bad I try and open my jaw all the way and it will unlock immediately. But, when i slowly close my jaw, my jaw locked back in place once my teeth touch my splint. My doctors apt is not for a few weeks and was wondering if anyone knows if there is anything I could do to help my jaw stay unlocked when I close my mouth. I tried keeping it opened when its unlocked, but i eventually have to close it and it locked again. Thanks
