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.

How Can 'Exercises for the Jaw to Shoulder' Help You?
If you suffer from jaw, neck, or shoulder pain, the proper combination of exercise can help to resolve your injury quickly.
- 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!If you suffer from jaw, neck, or shoulder pain, you need to read “Exercises for the Jaw to Shoulders” to:
- Recover from an injury to the tissues of the jaw, neck, or shoulder.
- Strengthen and develop power in these structures WITHOUT re-injuring yourself.
Work the Kinetic Chain
This book applies a functional approach to exercise by treating your body as a dynamic web of interconnected links – a kinetic chain:
- We help to rehabilitate your body after an injury (or restore function after a long period of inactivity) and prepare it for more intensive exercise programs.
- We help to prepare your body for sport or athletic performance training.
Developed by the internationally best-selling authors of Release Your Pain, these exercises – on their own or combined with a treatment modality - will help you to resolve long-standing soft tissue injuries and neuromuscular problems.
Integrating Kinetic Chain Principles into Your Exercise Routines
We structured our routines to take you from the intial rehabilitation of an injury into intermediate, advanced, and into performance-based routines. This method lets 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
The case studies in this book provide a fascinating insight into how injuries affect your kinetic chain, and reduce the power of your baseball pitch, or the effectiveness of your golf swing. Even better, they show how using the "PROPER" exercises can not resolve the injury, but also improve performance in your chosen sport.

What's Different about the Exercise Routines in Exercises for the Jaw to Shoulder?
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:
- Provide unique, carefully selected combinations that helps you progress from injury recovery to performance care.
- Take into consideration the Kinetic Chain Relationships.
- Consider how the core of your body acts as the power generator for your entire body. You need a strong, stable core to be able to transfer energy to your extremities
Improve the Elastic Quality of Your Tissues
Our exercise routines work to develop the elastic power of your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and fascia to store and release energy by improving 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.
Integrating Aerobic Warm-ups
By developing your aerobic system you increase your circulatory function and your ability to produce energy on demand.
Aerobic warm-ups are an integral and essential component of all of our programs, including for jaw, neck, shoulder, back, or leg injuries.
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
Examples of what you will find in this book!
The focus of this book is to develop and strengthen your individual muscles AND the inter-relationships between your various soft-tissue structures.
The following are just a few examples of the many effective exercises you will find in this book.
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.
PNF – Extend Your Neck and Head
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.
Internal-External Shoulder Stretch
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.
Beginner’s Front Bridge
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.
