    Dentition impacts the feet as well as feet impacting the dentition. We (posturologists) refer to the former as Descending Patterns and the latter as Ascending Patterns. Cuccia's paper suggests this correlation that posturologists in Europe have been writing about for years.

    If you accept the Neurophysiological Model as an explanation as to how the Ascending Patterns can result in postural distortions (Rothbart, Podiatry Revew July/Aug 2011), then you might anticipate a reciprocal relationship between the jaw and the feet. All interesting possibilities. Might make a good thread of discussion.

    I really don't want to get into this again. But this
    Is a contender for the most egregious debasement of science I have ever read. Seriously.

    The Mortons staticometer (had to google it) was a patent from 1929. Kinda dinosaur Fscan http://www.freepatentsonline.com/1733510.pdf . Way to keep up with the cutting edge.

    Primary dentition = baby teeth
    Perminant dentition = grown up teeth.

    So the study finds that between little tiny kiddies (baby teeth) and older children (grown up teeth) there is more weight on the forefoot with the older ones... and the inference is that this difference is because of the teeth.

    Because of course nothing else changes between 5 years old and 15 years old.

    I feel a Carl hooper moment coming on!!!:bang:
     
  5. What you really need is a pipe to compensate for any asymmetrical clenching of the dentition, that'll sort your plantar pressures out. Just thought of a great study, plantar pressures in pipe smokers..... sub-genius.

    Wow, then you can do a study on the incidence of ulcer positioning in pipe smokers with periph. vasc. disease and non-evenly distributed plantar pressures! Of course with the teeth/butt clenching control group ;D
