When a child has oral ties, their whole body has to compensate. Often there is a high level of tension in their body and nervous system. Ideally, your child is checked by a pediatric Chiropractor and has their nervous system evaluated prior to having a revision done.

WHY: This gives you and your pediatric chiropractor a baseline for the level of strain on your child's body and nervous system. Once your chiropractor starts the process of balancing your child's nervous system your dentist will find they can perform a more complete revision and there will be a better chance of avoiding reattachment or the need for a second revision.

In addition to the exercises your dentist and lactation consultant will give you for your child, chiropractic care will serve to rewire the neural pathways and create lasting change.

Think of the ties like puppet strings. Your child's body is the puppet and their strings are pulled too tight and often twisted. Once the revision is done, the strings are cut. But now, your child's body needs help releasing the patterns of tension due to how their body had compensated around the tie.

What can chiropractic do for your child?

  • Ensure proper development
  • Gently balance the cranium and upper neck allowing for proper motion and nerve conduction. This will facilitate proper sucking, swallowing, breathing, and latching.
  • Aid the drainage of fluid and prevent chronic ear or sinus infections and a need for excessive orthodontics later in life.
  • Allow for proper digestion through a properly balanced nerve system.
    What parents report: Sleep improves, babies feed more efficiently, digestive issues resolve, chronic congestion clears up, babies are able to turn their heads symmetrically, head shape becomes rounder, family life improves- the list goes on!
