Doing this could push up and forward your maxilla faster

I noticed that pushing hard my head like this as long as I can is helping a lot my tongue posture. In addiction to this I noticed that my maxilla is hitten by a strong force that goes up and forward.

The force that we apply on our lower third could balance the negative force that we applied for years with forward head posture that pulled our lower third back.

There are several exercises on the web to solve forward head posture and all of them seem to apply certain energy on the lower face. Try to do it and feel it.

Here some examples.

Don't you feel your chin pushed up and forward?

I don't really get this. Is this not like chin tucking? I try to just bend my head down but I feel nothing.

You mean trying to drive your chin/mandible into your chest or what?? Or just chin tucking?

yes it's chin tucking but you have to mantein it for at least 5 minutes, or all day long if you can. And apply as much force as you can. I feel my chin literally hit with my neck

How do you do that? I push my head down and my chin barely touches my chest/neck without forcing. Is your jaw that downward grown? Or do you mean just the mandible touching -- not specifically the end of the chin?

I mean, I probably do mck chin tuck all day. If I push hard I barely get any extra distance and it's painful/uncomfortable. I don't dig this tbh

The exercise in the picture is the chin tuck where the head moves horizontally back. It engages the cervical extensors primarily. The exercise that Dr. Mew shows in one of his videos is the chin nod also referred to as McKenzie. It's very similar but the chin tilts down a little and the back of the head moves up. That exercise engages the deep head flexor muscles. Those muscle groups become weak with forward head posture.

Both exercises engage the suprahyoid muscles that lift up the hyoid bone. Since the tongue attaches to hyoid too it moves up your throat and you can feel it up in your palate more clearly. Dr. Mew suggests doing the tongue chewing exercise to strengthen it enough where you can lift up your tongue without forcing yourself to be in a chin tuck all the time. You will find this especially beneficial when swallowing food.

Isn't chin tuck with neck back part of proper posture though? Essentially to avoid fhp

This feels more like a neck exercise to me than anything. Is it supposed to work the neck a lot?

Feel no difference in face/mouth/bones/etc. I don't have fhp so maybe this is not useful for me.

Also holding this position looks weird as hell. It's like a cat being grabbed by its scruff. LOL

Hey Cassius, can this chin tuck technique from Mew actually work to lift and forward the maxilla even if it's down?  Is this still possible for young adults like 23
