here, or right inside here? Patient: Right in there
Dr. Jacobs: Okay, let’s lie on your back Patient: Oh, that’s amazing
9:30 Dr. Jacobs: Yeah, you are feeling better, that is our goal. Okay, let me know if you
feel any discomfort okay? So, is that your normally how you open your jaw, or wider?
Because the norm is three and a half to four and a half. Now, you are at three and a half.
You feel you can open wider, and know that your norm is wider?
Patient: I can, yeah I usually open wider, but-
Dr. Jacobs: So, lets see if we can get you there. Sorry
Patient: It’s okay Dr. Jacobs: Okay, sit up. Okay, so lets open
again. Okay, how is that? You are four. Okay, how is that?
Patient: Better Dr. Jacobs: Do you feel tightness or is it
gone? Patient: It’s still a little tight but-
Dr. Jacobs: Mhm, how is your pain now? Patient: It is just a little sore right there
Dr. Jacobs: Just on that spot, and not the whole thing?
Patient: No Dr. Jacobs: Just that spot, how much soreness
would you rate to 10? Patient: I would say a four or five
Dr. Jacobs: Four or five, just in that spot? Patient: Yeah
Dr. Jacobs: Okay, drink some more water. What about the fullness in the ear?
Patient: Yeah, I don’t feel anything Dr. Jacobs: That’s gone? That’s beautiful.
Okay, is it okay to work inside your ear? Patient: Yup
Dr. Jacobs: Lie on your back. I am going to put my fingers, not really, it’s just
one finger. Patient: Okay

feel it? Patient: It’s still there

Dr. Jacobs: Zero to ten? 12:23 Patient: Probably like a three
Dr. Jacobs: Oh my god, in the same spot? Patient: Yeah, just that right inner spot
right there Dr. Jacobs: Okay. Oh, you feel that tightness
here. I am not surprised with all this tightness with clenching and grinding, it’s very difficult
to have all the symptoms. Let me know if it�s too much. Okay, sit up for me. Okay, I want
you to open and close and tell how that feels. How is that? Still feel sore, or is it gone?
Patient: It’s still sore, but it’s better than it was a minute ago
Dr. Jacobs: How much from zero to ten? Patient: Probably a two
Dr. Jacobs: Okay, but nothing in here? Do you feel like you are opening your normal?
Or still half? Patient: No, I feel like I am opening my
normal now Dr. Jacobs: Okay, so we started with two and
halves in the ear, lets check now. Okay, close. Open again. Okay, alright, awesome. Thank
