The body is a complete unit and every disc, cervical joint as well as occlusion joint need to be well supported in order for the musculature and surrounding fascia from head to toe including occiput to sacrum,/iliac down to toes need to be supported with optimized occlusion. It goes hand in hand. A good bite that supports proper physiologic posture of the mandible to the cranium is critical in order to help the realignment of the other remaining body parts in the postural chain.
I used to work with a great AO who was also SOT trained…now she moved….now I work with a NUCCA who checks body balance …so, whatever person has a respect for body alignment in a detailed manner regardless of the discipline without jerking, twisting in a manner to make thing worse…and ideally if the measure and document what they are doing with radiographic imaging so they can see the changes they have made….one will see that small changes with light gentle force is all that is necessary to help.
Occlusion is a part of that alignment scheme and support system.. And I don’t mean someone has to be biting down all that time…but the occlusion musts be proprioceptively aligned to give the proper signalling to maintain proper mandibular and head posture to support the neck and vice versa.
