Myofunctional therapy can make a huge impact on children while their face and mouth are still developing. However, this does not mean that adults can't make strides towards better tongue posture, chewing, and swallowing patterns!
Orofacial myofunctional dysfunction can present many difficult challenges. Sleep disordered breathing can result from low tongue posture, open mouth breathing, etc. Clenching and grinding can be a sign that a sleep disorder may be present. Frequent headaches, neck tension, or TMJ pain may be due to compensations that we have when breathing, chewing, swallowing, or from a tongue tie!
Going through the MyoMentor program with Sarah really helped me understand why I needed to focus on my airway journey!
