Muscle Activation Influence on Core Exercise
The purpose of this study is to investigate the degree to which masseter activation influences athletic performance in endurance exercises. This study will analyze the connections between oral health and athletic abilities through the use of surface electromyography (EMG).
We invite you to take part in a research study because you are a healthy, active adult between the ages of 18-45 without low back pain, hip, or recent arm or leg injury, no self-reported balance disorder, no known muscular abnormalities, no previous year history of low back pain, and no low back surgery or lower arm or leg surgery. An active adult is defined as participating in moderate exercise 30 minutes a day for 5 times per week.
