Some Inside Scoop on Mouthguards

A large manufacturer of sports equipment has developed a mouthguard they promote as being able to provide the same benefits as the Pure Power Mouthguard. However, the product does not have the scientific backing, the research and technology to be able to produce the same results.

We are told that before the NFC championship game, PPM company reps had heard that a certain Vikings player would be wearing the competitor mouthguard during the game. They sent word to Saints camp that the player might lose shoulder and arm strength when his head was turned to the side. Well, it makes for a great story, and I can't say for sure if that is why the ball ended up on the turf on at least one occasion, but to those of us who know the positive impact of correct neuromuscular jaw positioning, it's certainly plausible.

I'm also told that 8 Colts players now have PPM's though they're not wearing them in the games so far...only for workouts.

Roman Harper, Pierre Thomas and Tracy Porter all clearly had their's in last night for the NFC Championship game.
