  •  Jaw Chapter                    (Duration : 5.25s)

Jaw-MassageESSWhen the tension in the jaw muscles builds up from over-use, the drag on the attachment point can cause the tendon and even the bone to inflame. Stretching on its own is usually not enough to rehabilitate jaw muscles, but combined with massage, the results are great. If your jaw clicks then your jaw muscles are too tight or the Jaw-3D-midshotjoint is too loose or hyper mobile. This chapter will explain the triggers to jaw problems and the 3D animation will show how the jaw functions and the reasons for discomfort or pain. The stretching and massage routines will overcome present problems and prevent future ones.

  •  Upper Back Chapter           (Duration : 24.01s)

Upper-Back-Strength-2Essentially with the upper back there is forward, backward and sideways bending, plus rotation. Apart from the paraspinal muscles down either side of the spine, the muscle groups are a little more obscure. The upper back is basically composed of the thoracic spine, the rib cage and related muscles. One of the most common reasons for discomfort and Forward-stoop-3Dpain in the Upper Back Zone is the forward stoop presentation. This increased curve in the upper back is created by many factors. Poor posture is a huge contributor. This chapter will explain the triggers to upper back problems and the 3D animation will show how the upper back  functions and the reasons for discomfort or pain. The stretching routines will overcome present problems and prevent future ones.

  • Shoulder Chapter               (Duration : 23.57s)

Shoulder-Clock-StretchIntense pain between the shoulder blades indicates your shoulders are dragging forward too much. Intense pain on the inside of the shoulder blade means your shoulders are too far forward and the muscles at the back can’t cope with the strain. The back muscles are sore because the front muscles are too tight. Two other common conditions that befall the shoulder is supraspinatis tendonitis (when it is painful on the Shoulder-tendonitis-3Dtip of the shoulder) and frozen shoulder (when the whole shoulder seems to have completely seized up making any movement very painful). This chapter will explain the triggers to shoulder problems and the 3D animation will show how the shoulders  function and the reasons for discomfort or pain. The stretching routines will overcome present problems and prevent future ones.
