Working on your posture is key to release some muscular tension coming from the neck and shoulders. Also see the previous blog on scapular stability.

You can also controlled active jaw movement, meaning that the focus is to avoid the jaw from shifting or clicking. All movements should be painfree.

Following some painfree active jaw movement, you can also do the same exercises with a slight resistance using your hand.
