Tongue Ties

๐Ÿ‘…TONGUE TIES๐Ÿ‘…โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


Tongue ties occur when the thin tissue under baby's tongue restricts movement of the tongueโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹.โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹The small membrane on the bottom of the tongue connects all the way down to the big toe! This is why babies struggling with oral restrictions often present with tensionโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹

โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹If you suspect your child has a tongue tie - we recommend contacting a lactation consultant first to asses whether there is a true tongue tie that could need a revision by a pediatric dentist. โ€‹Infants with tongue ties are not able to latch as deeply, could have problems creating negative pressure to draw milk out, or are not using tongue correctly to breast feedโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹.


Pediatric chiropractic care cannot make tongue ties disappear but it can help decrease restriction and tension throughout the bodyโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹. Getting pediatric chiropractic care after tongue tie revisions is essential to support healing, remove body tension, and promote proper biomechanics
