The Impact of Tongue-Tie on the Musculoskeletal and Nervous Systems
The impact of tethered oral tissues on the fascial system of the neonate can be the origin of both successful and unsuccessful compensatory biomechanical alterations in an attempt to breastfeed. These biomechanical alterations can manifest as asymmetries in appearance and function as well as in behavioral challenges ranging from sleep disturbance, colic like symptoms and inconsolable crying. It is important to understand these issues when looking at the whole picture so as to improve outcomes when surgical interventions are required. The goal of this lecture will be to support the attendees with understanding the relationship between structure and function and how this ties in with physical limitations like tongue and lip tie, the biomechanical assessment and discussion of manual therapies available to assist the breastfeeding dyad.
