Exercises for Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

These exercises allow you to release and regain control of the muscles in your jaw, neck, and shoulders.

When practiced daily, the exercises will release the chronic muscle tension that leads to temporomandibular joint disorders.

Please do the exercises extremely slowly and gently, as instructed,
and do not do them if you feel pain or discomfort.

INSTRUCTIONS
