Hi how do u get lockjaw
Hi, Thanks for asking. Lock jaw means one cannot open his mouth fully or partially. This in itself could be sign of a psychiatric disease, muscular problem, tetanus or dysfunction of temporo-mandibular joint. Search from the net or see some youtube movies about lockjaw. Hope this will help you, Dr. Azeem, MBBS,MCPS, MRCGP Int.
