Hip Pain

Massater Muscle (Jaw Muscle)

Did you know that the strongest muscle in the body based on its weight is the masseter (jaw muscle)?

With all muscles of the jaw working together it can close the teeth with a force as great as 55 pounds (25 kilograms) on the incisors or 200 pounds (90.7 kilograms) on the molars. Amazing! And no wonder it is so painful when it is locked tight!

Sensory Motor Amnesia (SMA) is a memory loss of how to feel and control certain muscles or muscles groups in the body. It is a learned motor pattern of the nervous system whereby these muscles display a limited range of motion, maintain a higher than normal level of involuntary contraction at rest, experience ongoing pain, and other dysfunctions at rest or in use.

SMA is undiagnosible and untreatable through the traditional medical model because the treatment requires work involving the sensory motor feedback loop.
