Special interest is given to the basic tension and to the function of the cervical and masticatory muscles by inspection and by palpation. Typical findings are: • Loss of the cervical spine lordosis with hypertension and shortening of the ventral musculature (in particular hyoid bone and mylohyoid muscle) • Cervical spine hyperlordosis with hypertension and shortening of the masticatory muscles with a decrease of the vertical and horizontal motion amplitude and a pathological opening of the mouth (Fig.
