Did you know the way we breathe, stand, sit, and bite are closely related. We are designed to walk upright and keep our airway open. The postural chain from our feet through the spine to the head works in unison to keep us moving and alive.
When one part of this skeletal system is out of alignment, other parts are affected. The bite and oral health is at the top of this chain.
We look carefully at how your bite determines your jaw position and thus the position of your head which in turn will affect the rest of your body and vice versa. Signs of postural problems could be:
- Numbing or tingling of the hands
- Pain in the jaw, neck, shoulders
- Back pain specially upper back
- Headaches, Migraines
- Difficulty clearing ears
