my jaw started to grating or crunching a few months ago and i made a CT scan it was fine then i wore a splint which made that crunching noises disappears just in one night! i was really happy but i knew that my jaw still clicks and i started to test my jaw much instead of relaxing it which made my muscles to hurt a lot and made the crunching noises to be back again after an "specific click" not the same click that i hear when i open my mouth wide!
and then again wearing the splint for one night and the crunching is gone but it keeps coming back after that specific click and i keep testing my jaw
im seeing an osteopathic doctor and she told me that she will be help to fix my posture which will lead to a successful tmj treatment, so please tell me what do u think? does my joint is damaged? can it be healed ?
