Our body’s nervous system is geared to bring our teeth together everytime we eat and everytime we swallow, and it is the muscular complex of the head and neck which allows this to happen.
This delicate muscular balance can be thrown into turmoil by a host of developmental factors.
It is estimated 80-90% of the population have some degree of this resulting jaw mis-alignment.
The nervous system’s answer to this resultant loss of muscular harmony is to do everything possible to ensure the teeth can come together to eat – this basic instinct ensures survival of the species.
Unfortunately the side-effects of “dragging” the jaws into this mis-aligned bite everytime we eat and swallow include:
- Increased residual muscular tension
- Balance issues
- Postural/skeletal problems
- Muscular metabolic fatigue
- Compromised airway function
- Left/Right side muscular imbalances
- Nerve compression
- Muscular pain/spasm
- Increased injury incidence
- Poor core stability
These problems begin in the head, neck, jaw complex but quickly have a domino effect down throughout the body.
The OSO device is an orthopaedic appliance worn on the upper or lower teeth and is created utilising nerve stimulation which relaxes the muscles of the head, neck, shoulders and back down throughout the body. When worn, the OSO puts you in, and maintains your optimal genetic position which carries over directly to quality of life and elite sports performance.
