Abstract:

An anatomical short, fibrotic or restricted lingual frenulum presents as Ankyloglossia impairing function for infants by way of breastfeeding difficulties. Although frenotomy is a simple surgical procedure to release the lingual restriction to help restore function, the surgery is only a smaller yet important piece of the puzzle of the treatment. The connective tissue forms the integrated milieu for several body systems in a human body. And since frenum is a part of this connective tissue and developmental & experiential compensation create complex creases along the fabric of fascial conductor network. These creases are noticed as structural, muscular, nerve compensations. Therefore a tongue tie is a complex clinical phenomenon that has many layers to it and needs a super wide vision of the Oral Ankylofrenula Team (OAT) to debate, plan, and mitigate treatment, support & rehabilitate. Craniosacral Biodynamic body work looks at this super wide vision that can allow gentle conduction of this orchestra of cellular events resulting in holistic shift and better treatment outcome.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: To understand the conductor of the function & regulation in our body – The Fascinating Facia
Objective 2: To be able to identify atleast 3 key sympathetic factors for compensations
Objective 3: To be able to understand the important of bodywork as preparatory to surgery
Objective 4: To be able to develop a holistic care with skilled lactation ideas & plan the referral team
Objective 5: To understand the need & importance of bodywork as integrative breastfeeding care plan
