POSITION STATEMENT


The relationship between the pelvis and stomatognathic system: A position statement


Charles L. Blum, DC, CSCP

Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research ~ March 3, 2010 ~ Pages 1-3

 

Abstract


An emerging theme within the evidence base of dental and structural healthcare professions is the presence of a relationship between the stomatognathic system and posture. Symptoms of temporomandibular/craniomandibular disorders (TMD/CMDs) within the stomatognathic system vary but often involve pain in the jaw musculature, pain or difficulty when opening the mouth and chewing, headaches, and ear pain. While the pelvis and TMJ might seem to be distal and unrelated aspects of our patient’s presenting symptoms, research is suggesting otherwise.
