If you suffer from jaw, neck, or shoulder pain, your physician may recommend exercise as part of your treatment. But which exercise? How do you find exercises that help to resolve your condition?
For example, with a jaw injury, exercising just the jaw muscles won’t resolve your problem. In fact, it may make the pain worse. This is often because all the surrounding muscles and tissues are also restricted or injured – but are not exhibiting pain syndromes. These structures may even be the cause of the pain in your jaw!
The first volume in the Release Your Kinetic Chain series of exercise books applies a functional approach to exercise and helps only the single area of injury, the exercise routines in this book treat your body as a dynamic web of interconnected links – a kinetic chain help you achieve two basic objectives:
Developed by the internationally best-selling authors of Release Your Pain, these exercises – when performed on their own or when
combined with a treatment modality - will help you to take a key step towards resolving long-standing soft tissue injuries and neuromuscular problems.
If you suffer from jaw, neck, or shoulder pain, you need to read “Exercises for the Jaw to Shoulders”.
This book can help you to recover from an injury to the tissues of the jaw, neck, or shoulder. Or it can be used to strengthen and develop Power in these structures in preparation for more intensive programs…while minimizing the chances of re-injuring yourself.
The routines in this book are structured to advance from beginners through intermediate, advanced, and into performance-based routines. They allow you to effectively strengthen, stretch, and rehabilitate the tissues of your jaw, neck, and shoulders without re-injuring yourself.
Jaw, neck, and shoulder...what’s the connection? We don’t normally think of these structures as being interconnected...until we suffer from p
Our bodies are a remarkable series of kinetically linked systems which, when working efficiently, store and release impressive amounts of eain or injury to one of these areas. And suddenly, we become very aware of the inter-relationships between these areas.
It is important to understand that our body is one very large Kinetic Web, in which tension within one area directly affects the soft tissue structures in adjacent areas. When a structure in your jaw, neck, or shoulder is injured or restricted, it becomes unable to effectively perform its normal functions such as chewing your food, turning your neck, or even shrugging your shoulder.
Copied from Chapter 2: Understanding Your Kinetic Chain – Exercises for the Jaw to Shoulder
Read the case studies in this book to see how an injury in one part of your body can affect structures in quite distant areas, and affect how you function on a daily basis. In this book, our sample case studies use the following examples to help you understand how kinetic chain relationships impact your ability to perform tasks normally:
Case Study 1:
Shoulder Injury caused by playing
baseball: Resulting in jaw and neck pain.

The exercise programs in the Release Your Kinetic Chain books use step-by-step routines that take into consideration kinetic chain relationships, tissue interactions, core imbalances, elastic power, and aerobic training. We strive to give you a balanced means of achieving a good strong body that is injury-free.
Our exercise routines always take into consideration a key fundamental aspect of good rehabilitation – Kinetic Chain Relationships.
Our exercise routines always consider how the core of your body acts as the power generator for your entire body. This is true even for movements of your neck, shoulders, arms, hands, legs or feet. No matter what the action, you need a strong, stable core to be able to transfer energy to your extremities.
Our exercise routines also address the development of your elastic power or the ability of your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and fascia to store and release energy. The ability of your soft tissues to store and release energy is dependent upon the quality of your soft tissues.
Low-quality tissues are full of adhesions, scar tissues, and knots. These tissues do not store or release energy efficiently.
High-quality tissues can move easily through their full range of motion, are not restricted or adhesed, are capable of long periods of endurance, and are not easily injured.
One of the primary goals of our exercise routines is to help you improve your overall tissue quality.
Aerobic warm-ups are an integral component of all of our programs. It doesn’t matter if we are dealing with a jaw, neck, shoulder, back, or leg injury; aerobic training is essential.
By developing your aerobic system you increase your circulatory function and your ability to produce energy on demand.
Aerobic exercise does this by increasing the density of capillaries in your muscles, and the density and activity of mitochondria (your personal energy factories) in your cel
The focus of this book is to develop and strengthen, not just your individual muscles, but also the inter-relationships between your various soft tissue structures. You can increase your rate of improvement by building an awareness of these kinetic relationships as you perform these exercises.

Isometric Jaw Resistance
In this exercise you will apply resistance to the actions of closing, opening, and lateral deviation of your jaw while it is in a resting position.
There should be no movement of your jaw while doing this exercise. The goal of this exercise is to establish normal alignment of the jaw while maintaining its correct postural position.
This cervical flexion- extension exercise works the muscles in the front and back of your neck.
This exercise is great for reducing and preventing neck pain, and for increasing neck stability. It strengthens the extensor muscles in the back of your head, as well as stretching the neck flexors in the front of your neck.
It is useful for reducing symptoms from conditions such as neck pain, whiplash, thoracic outlet syndrome, and for correcting the results of a slouching, head-forward posture.
The rotator cuff, scapulae, and joint capsules of the shoulder often become tight with repeated throwing motions, racquet sports, or tasks that require you to continually reach overhead.
This stretch helps to release those structures. You will need a small hand weight to perform this stretch.
This very effective exercise targets your shoulders and core abdominal muscles.
Use this exercise to strengthen your core and to power all the actions of your body.
All the routines in this book integrate your core structures into the exercise program…very important since the core forms a critical component of any kinetic chain.
Release Your Kinetic Chain with Exercises for the Jaw to Shoulder is an easy-to-read, easy-to-use book packed full of useful exercises, routines, health tips, and information to get you back into shape, and help you to resolve injuries of the jaw, neck, and shoulder.

Another great book written by Dr. Abelson! I have been using the exercises in this book on a daily basis in my office and patients experience results and are happy knowing that they can be using the exercises and stretches at home to stay well. The images in this book are of top notch quality and the information is priceless. I highly recommend this book to anyone experiencing problems in this area or anyone who treats these conditions. You will not be disappointed.
