Movement of the TMJ in different directions is important so that you are able to manipulate different things that may enter your mouth ie: hard and soft food. Opening and closing is particularly important as it allows us to eat, drink, breathe and put objects inside our mouth ie: playing a wind instrument.

Using both hands on either side of your mouth, place your index finger along the top jaw line and thumb along the bottom jaw line on either side.  Use your fingers to assist in opening your mouth.
