Chiropractic Care for Tongue & Lip Tie
Tongue-tie is a common condition where a child is born with a shorter, thicker ,or tighter band of tissue that connects the bottom of their tongue to their mouth. When this happens, it limits the range of motion and movement of a baby’s tongue.
While this might seem like a small problem, there can be serious complications for eating, speaking and swallowing. Even more troubling? Complications can follow you through childhood and into adulthood if left untreated.
Consequences for Infants with Tongue Tie
- Impact on milk supply
- Inability to breastfeed
- Insufficient nutrients
- Sleep deprivation
- Problems with introducing a solid diet
