When it comes to ongoing neck pain and TMJ dysfunction, you probably haven’t considered your tongue.

But did you know your tongue is actually 8 muscles? Some of which connect to all those tight and grouchy places around your head and neck?

So when it comes to neck and jaw pain – we have to talk about the tongue.

The inspiration for today’s episode came from a message I received after episode 148 about this individual’s experience with a tongue tie (aka ankyloglossia) and better breathing mechanics

But if you have ongoing neck pain, TMJ, issues with breathing, snoring, or swallowing – your tongue might have something to do with it and today’s episode is 100% for you.
