Tethered oral tissues, more commonly known as tongue, lip and buccal ties, are increasingly prevalent in our population.
Common signs/symptoms of tethered oral tissues include:
Chiropractors are in a great position to assess and co-manage tethered oral tissues in practice.
Dr. Tara has additional training in PIPS (pediatric intraoral palate specific) technique which is an assessment and treatment tool for intraoral dysfunction, palate imbalance, TMJD and poor tongue function.
Dealing with restricted oral tissues takes a team based approach and may include comanagement with a dentist trained in tie releases, an orofacial myofunctional therapist, IBCLC (Lactation consultant), osteopath, craniosacral therapist etc.
