Tongue-tie pediatric chiropractor help

Posted in Health Conditions Pediatrics on Dec 20, 2022

If left untreated, congenital tongue-tie can lead to various issues or complications. These may include difficulty eating, speaking, and breastfeeding. It can also have a lasting impact on jaw growth and development both functionally and aesthetically. Therefore, it is important to seek medical attention at the first signs of tongue tie in order to avoid these complications.

Parents across the globe who have kids struggling with tongue-tie, also known as ankyloglossia, now have a new hope. Many kids who have undergone chiropractic care for this condition are seeing dramatic results. One family reports that until their daughter tried kids' chiropractic, her speech was so limited that she could barely say four words. After several kids' chiropractic sessions, her ability to communicate has improved dramatically and now she can express herself so much more clearly. Others have noted an almost immediate increase in their child’s range of motion in their mouth when undergoing kids chiropractic treatments for tongue-tie.

Congenital Tongue-Tie definition

Congenital tongue tie, or ankyloglossia, is a condition that limits the range of motion and stickiness of a child's tongue. This is caused by the lingual frenulum - an abnormally short band that ties the bottom tip to the floor of their mouth. Without prompt care, this medical issue can cause long-term difficulties, including difficulty eating, talking, and breastfeeding - as well as impacts on jaw growth both functionally and aesthetically. In some cases, the condition will resolve itself naturally with age - however, pediatric chiropractors can provide insights and correction techniques to improve outcomes. The sooner this medical issue is addressed, the better!
