So you can quickly and easily navigate to all the topics that most interest you. Best of all, you can enjoy its full-color format, and view all the numerous illustrations and exercises as they are meant to be seen. The exercise routines in this book activate your entire 'kinetic chain', from your jaw to your shoulder, and even into your core! You can use these routines to recover from injuries to the jaw, neck, or shoulder, including: • TMJ- Tempromandibular Joint Disorder • Injuries to the soft tissues of the jaw, neck, or shoulder • Whiplash • Headaches • Neck Pain • Rotator Cuff Injuries • Shoulder Pain ====================== WHY EXERCISE? ====================== 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 even make the pain worse. This is often because all the surrounding muscles and tissues are also restricted or injured - but may not be exhibiting pain syndromes. These structures may even be the cause of the pain in your jaw! ===================== WHAT'S DIFFERENT? ===================== Rather than working with 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. 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. Since injury or weakness in one area of your body always affects the function of numerous other related areas, we designed our routines to take into account direct muscular connections, muscle antagonists, fascial connections, as well as the fact that tissue restrictions often affect the primary mechanisms of energy storage and release. ============================= RESOLVE SOFT-TISSUE INJURIES ============================= Developed by the internationally best-selling authors of 'Release Your Pain ', these exercise routines - when performed on their own, or when combined with a treatment modality - will help you to take a key step towards resolving long-standing neuromuscular problems and soft-tissue injuries.
