Tongue and lip ties are common issues for infants that can cause significant problems with their oral function and overall health. For many parents, finding a solution for their child’s tongue or lip tie can be a frustrating and confusing process. But, there is hope! At The Wellery, we specialize in tongue-tie chiropractic care, which involves removing nervous system stress and tension so that oral function can be properly assessed. In this blog, we will explain the importance of tongue-tie chiropractic care, and how we can empower parents to help their child.
At The Wellery, we have cared for many infants and children with oral ties, and we know that all oral restrictions are not created equal. To help us assess your child’s needs, we perform neurological scans to determine where the nervous system has interference, tension, and stress. Once we get a bigger picture of your child’s nervous system, we can create a customized care plan that fits their needs.
Once we have determined the specific needs of the child, we work with other healthcare providers to determine if or when a tongue or lip tie release is necessary. We understand the importance of proper oral function and believe that it should be properly determined before any release is performed.
We believe it’s essential to equip parents with the knowledge and tools to care for their child, so we encourage key home care exercises to aid in better outcomes for their child. Our goal is to help remove nervous system stress and myofascial tension so that an infant can properly latch and achieve successful feeding as well as breathing. This is key to the well-being of the infant, as proper feeding and breathing are crucial to their growth, development, and overall health.
Our team is dedicated to providing exceptional care so that your infant can properly function, grow, and thrive. By working with parents and other healthcare providers, we help children overcome stress and tension associated with oral ties in order to achieve optimal health.
