Influence of the Craniocervical Posture on Tongue Strength and Endurance

The study investigated the impact of head position on tongue strength in 37 healthy adults using the IOPI. The investigators captured tongue strength measurements in an anterior, mid, and posterior placement in neutral, retracted, and forward head positions. Tongue strength in the anterior and mid position reached significance. The authors concluded that head position influences tongue strength.
