Why Bodywork is a Significant Piece of the Puzzle of Comprehensive Tongue & Lip Tie Treatment? — The Emerging GOLD Standard of Treatment & Care
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.
