If a parent has concerns about a child's speech and language, then a wait & see approach is not likely to be the best approach. A parent knows their child. What can a concerned parent do? Discuss with your Doctor, a Speech-Language Pathologist in your community or your state's early intervention program. Did you know that early intervention is free and is not based on income? Early intervention works and helps set up a child for success in Kindergarten!

What other questions do you have about Speech Therapy? Feel free to ask here! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Adequate tongue function is important for healthy living! ๐Ÿ‘…

Was Micheal Jordan controlling his vagus nerve by sticking out his tongue?

For a perfect jump shot, you need to be calm to focus properly.

Thereโ€™s an interesting connection between how the tongue calms and primes the brain.

The vagus nerve stimulates certain muscles in the heart that help to slow heart rate. When it overreacts, it can cause a sudden drop in heart rate and blood pressure, resulting in fainting.

Signals through the vagus send the chemical to tell the brain to release acetylcholine, an important chemical to slow heart rate. Acetylcholine is basically the heartsโ€™ natural pacemaker.

The connection is significant because when you have good โ€œvagal toneโ€ it is a clinical measure believed to indicate overall levels of vagal activity, but is measured indirectly through the heart rate variability (HRV). Abnormal HRV has been associated with many severe conditions such as diabetes, heart failure, and hypertension.

For Michael Jordan, it seems that protruding his tongue allowed him to slow the heart and heighten his senses so that he could perform at his absolute peak.

While the hypoglossal nerve is primarily involved in protruding the tongue, the subsequent activation of the throat muscles and palatoglossal muscle which lifts the back of the tongue to move it out of the throat is innervated by the vagus nerve.

Other benefits of vagal tone include:

โ€ข Turn on neurogenesis, helping the brain sprout new brain cells.
โ€ข Rapidly turn off the stress, hyper-arousal, and fight/flight via the relaxation response.
โ€ข Fight inflammatory disease.
โ€ข Help you resist high blood pressure.
โ€ข Block systemic (body-wide) inflammation - a major factor behind aging and poor health.
โ€ข Help you sleep better.
โ€ข Raise levels of human growth hormone.
โ€ข Help us overcome insulin resistance.
โ€ข Turn down allergic responses.
โ€ข Lower chances of getting stress and tension headaches.

So, should you walk around sticking your tongue around all the time?

There are ways to control the vagus nerve, and the goal really is to increase vagal tone. These include tongue posture to the roof of the mouth.

For a similar exercise to how Micheal Jordan used his vagal-tongue connection try this exercise:

Tongue lifts (think of moving the tongue OUT of the back of the throat).

1) Open the mouth as wide as it will go.
2) Now using two fingers push the lower jaw 1-2mm past its passive opening position.
3) Holding this opened position lift the tongue to touch behind the gums of the upper front two teeth
4) It should feel like a stretch, if you canโ€™t make it, stretch the tongue as far as it will go and hold for 3-4 seconds
5) Now repeat 10 times,

If you canโ€™t reach you may have a restriction or need to strengthen the muscles of the tongue.

You should feel a deep activation of the throat muscles.

How does this exercise feel for you?
