Head and Jaw Mechanics

Your jaw moves in three dimensions so you can eat, talk, and breathe. Your head can also move in three dimensions so you can better see and hear what is in your surroundings. Your jaw and head need freedom of movement and are not meant to be a stabilizing joints or structures.

Your head is covered by flat wide muscles and your jaw is controlled by many small muscles. The muscles from your jaw and head connect to your neck, ribs, and shoulders. Your jaw and head can influence your neck, ribs, shoulders and vice versa.

 

We will look at all these connections and even how you are breathing to develop a program that works for you. We will even work with a dentist if needed to make sure your jaw mechanics are working optimally.
