High school and college sports are about to start and on the list of supplies your child needs is a sports mouth guard. This may seem like a simple purchase which you can make at any sporting goods store for a few dollars. But you may not know that this simple piece of equipment can have a dramatic effect on your son or daughters sports performance.
If your child is a college athlete, or competing at a high level in high school, you should consider the Pure Power Mouth Guard, a custom fitted mouth guard that properly aligns the jaw, putting the entire body in equilibrium. This means, the muscles are completely relaxed and no longer compensating to hold the body's posture together.
Now the muscles can release more energy, power, strength, flexibility and increased range of motion to the body. Even professional athletes, such as Terrell Owens and Olympic champion Michael Redd found a 30%-80% increase in their athletic ability when using the PPM.
It sounds crazy that a mouth guard can make you stronger, improve your flexibility and increase your balance. But this mouth guard, derived from neuromuscular dentistry, shows how connected your bite is to the rest of your body. The idea is to find the ideal bite position (where the muscles and joints are most relaxed) and build that position into the appliance.
