Tongue Tie and Latch
We highly recommend that babies should start cranial osteopathy sessions within 24 hours of the tongue tie revision for maximum benefit, although it will still help later on.
Cranial osteopathy can identify and treat the effects of head moulding, neck tension and tongue-tie through gentle manipulation. However, it needs to be remembered that the effects of cranial treatment may be impaired if the tongue-tie remains untreated.
The birth process and position of the foetus in the womb can also have an impact on musculoskeletal wellbeing of your child.
Cranial osteopathy helps the baby to use all of the muscles which have been previously restricted. and by releasing tension so your baby can latch more effectively. Osteopathy can have an important role in optimising, identifying and minimising the underlying causes of your baby's symptoms.
CASE STUDY: Tongue tie/latch
Our beautiful and perfect third little baby was born on 2nd September: she was so wonderful but unfortunately had a 100% tongue tie, she couldn’t latch for two days until she got a slight “stop gap” snip at two days old which allowed her to latch. Tracy used her magic hands all over our tiny Eden who really enjoyed her gentle and respectful treatment and was in a good way for treatment the following day.
