Tongue-Tie and Palate Evaluation Procedures

The issue of tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is becoming more common in the pediatric population. To address this issue, Dr. Rosen discusses the protocols necessary to evaluate tongue-tie and what effect the different grades of tongue-tie have on the developing child. He also covers the different approaches to correction of the tongue-tie, when surgical intervention is necessary, and when more conservative procedures are appropriate. The correction protocols for the palate are also covered in instances when tongue-tie is present.

In this streaming video Dr. Rosen demonstrates the protocols for evaluating the palate and its relationship to cranial mechanics and tongue-tie. Determining proper palate anatomy and physiology is crucial to evaluating the proper function of the entire cranium. Understanding palatal mechanics and anatomy allows the practitioner to determine how the cranial sutural and dural meningeal system is working. The effect of the palatine and maxillary bones on cranial bone growth, functional issues (i.e. nursing, feeding and speech) and the neurological development of the child are of paramount importance. Correction protocols for specific palate distortions are demonstrated as well as how these distortions affect the rest of the cranium.

Evaluation Protocols for the Pediatric TMJ

In this 2.25-hour video set Dr. Rosen discusses the mechanics of the temperomandibular joint (TMJ), its functional anatomy, and the evaluation protocols necessary to properly and effectively correct imbalances in both the development and function of the jaw, face, and palate and their effects on the cranium.

In dry skull demonstrations, Dr. Rosen takes you through a step-by-step process to thoroughly and efficiently evaluate the pediatric TMJ from both a function and anatomical perspective. In infants, the proper function of the TMJ influences their ability to nurse or suck correctly and is intricately involved in a myriad of common pediatric problems including: nursing, teething, tongue-tie, colic/digestive issues, head posture, developmental milestones, ear infections and many others.

The proper function of the TMJ is also a primary factor in cranio-facial dynamics, proper palatal and cranial bone growth and development, as well as cranial bone motion.

If you would like to become more proficient in evaluating proper cranial bone mechanics, as well as being able to determine where to start with your cranial adjusting, this video is an excellent place to start.

Intra-Oral Cranial Adjusting Protocols for the Adult and Pediatric Patient

In this streaming video set you will learn the art of intra-oral cranial adjusting. These techniques are some of the most specific and effective ways to make cranial corrections. Intra-oral corrective protocols will often succeed when extra-oral corrections are not making the desired changes.

Specific corrections are included for subluxations of the occiput, temporals, frontal, sphenoid (including the sphenobasilar, sphenoid wing and spheno-maxillary suture) and palate. Also included are external cranial finishing/balancing techniques and cranial facial sutural protocols to balance the cranium and restore normal cerebrospinal fluid movement after intra-oral corrections.

Demonstrations and explanations are done with lecture and PowerPoint support on both a dry skull and live model to help clarify contact points, vectors of correction and specific adjusting procedures.

Includes a PDF workbook.

If you wish to take your cranial adjusting skills and practice to the next level, this streaming video set can play an integral part in reaching your clinical goals.

Evaluation and Correction of Vagus Nerve Imbalances

The vagus nerve has been shown to be involved in many physiological functions including autonomic nervous system balance, digestion and elimination, heart rate, seizure activity, respiration, and emotional stability. It contains motor and sensory fibers and has the widest distribution of any other nerve in the body. If it is impeded along it course, either by traction or compression forces, its ability to transmit impulses is altered. Evaluation of the structures, spinal vertebra, dural meningeal system and the fascial system through which it passes is crucial in determining and facilitating normal function.

In this streaming video Dr. Rosen discusses vagus nerve anatomy and physiology, its impact on overall health, and how to evaluate and correct the major biomechanical imbalances (subluxations) that can interfere with the vagus nerve's function. These corrective procedures include: atlas, occipital and temporal bone corrections, clavicular and first rib subluxations, fascial and muscle reflex balancing (diaphragm and psoas muscle) and soft tissue reflex indicators. These procedures are demonstrated and explained for both the pediatric and adult population. If you want to be more effective and efficient in your practice this video is a must.
