The impact of good sitting and standing posture is familiar to most of us, but good tongue posture may not be as familiar. Why is proper tongue posture important? You may have heard that the tongue is a strong muscle, but it is actually made up of eight separate muscles. The tongue’s multiple muscle attachments impact our mouths, sinuses, noses, heads, necks, and shoulders. It is no surprise that improper tongue positioning can lead to problems with all of those areas, headaches, long face syndrome, vision problems, and sleep apnea- to mention a few.
