All About The Therabite Jaw Motion Rehabilitation System

The human jaw is the only movable bone in the body and is one of the most powerful working mechanisms of the humans. With the capacity to exert a force of around 160 pounds per square inch, the jaw is a very powerful system. There are two parts of the jaw, the upper jaw, and the lower jaw, also called the mandible. The mandible is not very prone to injuries on its own but accidents or other such incidences make the mandible very vulnerable. 

What are the Problems that affect the Jaw?

The jaw is made of muscles, bones, and tendons, which are all susceptible to injury. The two major problems we will discuss in the article are trismus and mandibular hypomobility.
