There are some 50 pairs of muscles and many nerves used to receive, prepare and move food to the stomach. Dysphagia is a medical term used to describe a difficulty that arises in swallowing. The problem is commonplace and can be related to health issues, the ageing process, disease, injury and more. One way therapists combat this problem is the Shaker Exercise. The Shaker Exercise is a head-lift and chin tuck from the supine position that consists of an isometric exercise of three consecutive sustained head raising movements for 1minute each with a 1 minute rest period between each head raising.

The jaw-opening exercise (JOE) is also an exercise dealing with dysphagia where subjects open their jaws to the maximum extent and maintain this position for 10 seconds. This open-and-hold exercise is performed five times with 10 seconds of rest, which is counted as one set.
