The Optimized Bite’s reason for success lies in the fact that it is based upon a mandibular and head posture that is level with the horizon (mandible is physiologically and anatomically oriented – occlusal plane angled not flat as in classic HIP, mandible is “optimized” with specific understanding and protocols, not forced anterior to some protruded position, neither randomly chosen to some more anterior position of the classic NM trajectory).
When upper complex (upper head) is level, and the Optimized Bite provides that idealized relationship with the lower jaw, the positive effects of unleashing the body’s potential translates from the atlas and downward the spinal column, unleashing the whole cervical complex. Anything less than that Optimum position may lend to a temporary gain, but not for long. This process improves the “frequency” vibration of all the cells to function and allows improved recovery and neuromuscular responses.
“Regardless of the stance and or head position that each and every activity demands the body to perform, the Optimized Bite as we have been advocating will allow the body to deliver the necessary functions for optimal balance, flexibility and strength with the quality of resting states required for optimal performance.”
