HOW A MOUTHGUARD CAN CHANGE YOUR GAME:

While the concept of a jaw alignment effecting athletic performance might sound farfetched (okay, unbelievable) PPM notes it’s been in the literature for decades. Research studies have shown muscular reaction to gross adjustments in the jaw. Some not-so-bad athletes apparently realized the advantage early in life.

“Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player ever, stuck his tongue out as he was driving for the basket. By sticking his tongue out, he was putting his jaw in that relaxed position. It probably wasn’t done consciously. It was something he just started doing at the age of 12 and it worked for him,” said PPM inventor Dr. Anil Makkar.

Hmm.
