Praise for:
Tongue-Tie & Palate Evaluation Procedures

“I have learned so much throughout the last 3 months of this course. I love how Dr. Rosen conveyed the importance of how the motion of the palate and the quality of function of a child suck, swallow and breath complex impact the rest of the cranium as well as the CSF as a whole. I appreciate the way in which this course was taught. Dr. Rosen did not skip right to the palate work but took the time to take a broad view of the cranium and then gradually the videos became more specific to the palate as the course progressed. I was prepared and eager for the next week’s course to drop. Third, I enjoyed the way in which palate corrections were taught. Simple steps in order to evaluate and make efficient corrections.

The course came at the perfect time in my life. My wife and I just had a baby girl. She had moderate tongue and lip ties. There was trouble nursing, sucking, and breathing. We started palate work early and saw great changes in her craniofacial system. Very quickly, nursing, sucking, and breathing improved. She is now a champion eater and has a head shape that I am so proud of haha. Professionally, I have had my eyes on getting into cranial adjusting for a couple years now. Took my first year of practice to focus on the neuro spinal system and now at the beginning of my second year in practice I am pumped to start the process of introducing cranial evaluation and corrections to my tool belt.

Our office at PWC Chiropractic takes on the toughest of cases. There are many points where thinking outside of the conventional box is necessary and beneficial to the patient. I felt like I attracted patients that needed palate and tongue tie work during this last 3 month stretch. I was able to confidently educate the parents on what was going on with their child and how it impacts their child as a whole. Many parents chose the wait and see approach and throughout consistent chiropractic care on the neuro spinal system as well as specific cranial adjustments, we saw many tongue ties loosen and pediatricians back away from their surgical recommendations. Also, better breathing and sleep changes as well.

Thank you for your level of attention to detail and taking the time to thoroughly explain this complex information! You guys are awesome and I am excited to take more courses and level up my care as I continue to learn.”

“The classes and lives are very complete and super educational; learning from this couple is pleasurable and addictive.

Tongue-tie is increasingly ‘common’ to be evaluated in hospitals in Brazil; unfortunately, many babies have their tongues cut, because doctors and healthcare professionals are unaware of how the skull can influence this. It’s so good to be able to educate my pregnant patients that this problem shouldn’t be solved like this, before I can evaluate and try to help and I’m so happy to see them bringing their babies and trusting in my work, without you, I would never have known about this much less would I have the confidence to call this responsibility upon myself. You transform the lives of my patients through your teachings, so THANK YOU so much for everything!

One of the cases that marked me the most was a 2-month-old baby who lives in another state, and who had her tongue stuck, but even after the operation, she continued to hurt her breast when breastfeeding, a very tight latch and the nipple clicking. Tongue, after I adjusted it, using what I learned in classes, she breastfed softly and without any clicking, the mother cried, hugged me, apologized to her baby saying ‘forgive me for putting you through that, I knew that Auntie Lili was his solution.’

I can say that I’m this couple’s number one fan. Learning from them is fascinating and I recommend all the courses to anyone who wants practice focused on real health. Using what they teach transforms lives!”

Lilian Aliberti, DC

“My three takeaways from this program are:

1) In depth overview regarding anatomy of the cranium esp. palate 2) detailed descriptions of assessment of palate and suture motion/restrictions 3) overview of corrections for restrictions of sutures and palate

Very in-depth course on the assessment and corrections of the palate. I treat and assess the palate multiple times a day and will be using these techniques to continue to help my patients.

I treat newborns and infants with tongue ties multiple times a day and have always worked on the palate to help with function and symptoms. I have already started using some of these techniques (specifically the assessment and correction of the sphenobasilar junction) to help with high and narrow palates.

This is a great program. I would love an overview at the end of what an exam/treatment would look like. There were many assessments and corrections discussed but it was unclear how they all fit together within a single exam/visit.”

Shenaigh Newman, DC

“I took this program because: 1. The impact of properly evaluating the palate and cranial structures in our young patients 2. How many tongue ties are over-looked today or even surgically operated on without looking to chiropractic first 3. The impact chiropractic can have on the developing baby/child

My daughter was thought to have a tongue tie initially because she didn’t have a great latch. It was determined that she did not have a tongue tie and we needed to work on her strength as well as other structures so I am excited to apply it to my own daughter 🙂

I applied them to my daughter by evaluating her. Her latch has been much better since I started working on her with what I learned in this course

Love the options for online classes – much easier for me at this stage in my life.”

Dr. Angela Irwin

“My three takeaways from this program:

1. How much the palate affects the facial and cranial bones 2. How important the sphenoid bone, as a base to all of these movements 3. How fluid the cranial, facial, and palate bones were (before full fusion) that allows for chiropractic adjustments

This program has really made me rethink how I adjust and look at my own children; as much as how I think about the babies and toddlers I have the privilege of treating. This has also impacted how much education and knowledge I have when speaking to the parents of these children and the degree of importance of the palate/facial/cranial bone relationships.

As I am actively seeing babies in the office since starting this course, I have already started to use the assessments to locate the decreased movement in more of the cranial sutures that I realized I could.

This course is filled with so much good information! And immediately applicable!”

Susanna Park, DC

“My three takeaways from this course are:   1. Information about how the cranium moves on inspiration and expiration that is not taught in chiropractic school (at least when I went). 2. Understanding the palate and being able to release dural tension has been a game changer in practice. 3. Confidence in communicating to parents about the benefits of cranial work

I have taught my associates the information in this course and have been enjoying the benefits myself. Since taking the original cranial immersion course and now this one, I have attracted more difficult cases and special needs kids into the office. This population so needs this type of work and parents are grateful to have found us.

A couple who are chiropractors contacted me when their baby was in the NICU on a ventilator because she was hypoxic. The baby started moving and opening her mouth for the first time after her first adjustment. The parents when they called me were not sure if she was ever going to come home. After 3 times seeing her in the hospital, she was able to come home. The doctors said she could have neurological damage and she is perfectly normal!!”

Karen Ferguson, DC

“This program gives a lot of insight how to manually help with tongue tie and difficulties related to it Surgery may not be required and each case will be different

I treat a lot of pre and post frenectomy patients so this is going to add greatly to the tool box

I have been trying to incorporate the palate techniques. I feel it has helped with some and with others I may just need more practice or more education. I think with time I will have a better answer, but already noticing changes and improvement with latch, heightened gag reflexes, and other symptoms that can be related

This has been very detailed and extremely educational. Now I just need to take time to keep going over it all.”

Laura McPherson, DC

“With this program you can take your time with two manageable videos weekly.  The call to actions gives you practical work to make sure you understand.

Professionally this course has made me feel more confident working with all the tots patients I already had & validating the previous knowledge I have.   I have many TOT’s patients. I work on their palate, sphenoid and can see dramatic changes that other Chiropractors in my area do not get.

Love how both Dr. Watson & Rosen make short videos to make sure it is easily digestible knowledge and not overwhelming!”

Melissa McCue, DC

“This program improved my confidence with treating little ones. Understanding even more of the biomechanics and small nuances through palpation helps build more confidence with what adjustment is needed. Thank you!

I had trouble with one patient that was showing BL sphenoid in flexion. She was able to unlock with SB contact on the right but not the left. We assessed the sphenoid motion again through pterygoid process contact on the left side.

I appreciate you taking the time to create the course for a deeper understanding.”

Elizabeth Farrell Wray, DC

“I took this program for the vast relationship of cranial movements, subluxation patterns and how it can affect baby/child/mother

The program has allowed me to be more clinically competent when dealing with high neurological cases, CSF, sinus, UC issues

One of my 5 year olds has suffered from tremendous sinus issues and did well with pure UC work but has improved even more with palate/sphenoid corrections

I would like to see more examples of the adjustments being made in a slower/clearer manner.”

Michael Cohen, DC

“This, and all of the Peak Potential programs I’ve taken, provide in depth description of normal function, what to look for, and how to correct it.

This program has expanded my skill set and ability to help my community.

I’ve had the opportunity to apply this training to a few new infant patients and am continuing to learn as I work with them. Thank you!”

Amanda Haeg, DC

“My takeaways from taking this program are:  Cranial work is very specific, having a model on hand while watching was a great help. It takes very little pressure to make corrections on the cranium. Knowing how the sphenobasilar junction can silicate and feeling the distortions on the greater wing of the sphenoid was key for me.

I now know a little more. I wish I could watch this 15 times on now how to continue to palpate my patients and look for submitted cranial bones.

I have a little one who was having issues nursing; he did have issues with only one breast and was fine in the other. It ended up he had a sphenobasilar torsion subluxation that I identified and corrected. Now nursing perfectly on both sides. Mom is thrilled.”

Seth Pearl, DC

“This program has lots of information set out in an easy way to learn.

Professionally it’s given me more tools for my assessment with babies. It will require time to feel confident with my adjusting skills but I’m excited about implementing the information I learned.

I’m assessing more palates than ever before and noticing improvements with latches a bit quicker than before.”

Kim Baker, DC

“This program has well organized modules that are scheduled efficiently with useful workshops.

I could practice with my patients right after learning

With a baby having problems in latching, her mother reported improvement after two visits. And now 3 months later, still doing better for a total of 4 chiropractic treatments!

I liked the live session, even though I couldn’t attend. It was nice listening to real time questions and answers.”

Madeleine Picard, DC

“This program is well organized with good instruction on technique and contacts.

I feel more confident in my ability to help infants and adults with cranial work.

I have not seen an infant with tongue tie; however, I was able to help an 8 year old boy who had a distortion pattern and was having trouble in school.

I always learn something I can add to my practice, thank you.”

Norri Collier, DC

“Having taken this program, my three takeaways are:   Better understanding of appropriate adjustments for appropriate situations. Better verbiage to communicate about TOTs. Better understanding of a parent’s point of view.

I have better service to patients and parents, watching kids heal more thoroughly and easily is very helpful! One in particular surprised even her dubious mom with her progress.

Thank you to both of you for creating it. I think it would be even better with discussion of what happens with misdiagnosis when torticollis is not addressed before a posterior tongue tie. More common in our state apparently.”

Lisa Geiger, DC

“My three takeaways from this program:

  1. A really good overview of anatomy of the cranium 2. Considerations for treating various issues in the cranium 3. More info on tongue tie for my patients

I have started to implement more cranial work into my practice and assess infants especially differently. I had a passion for tongue-ties before but it has solidified that I want to keep diving deeper to help my patients.

I applied the fruit jar techniques to an infant and that helped them instantly relax on the table and not cry the rest of the visit while mom got to also get treated!

This was very informative but I can tell that an in person seminar for me is needed to really work on the hands on. Some of it feels very intuitive and I want to get better at that.”

Tracey Dalton, DC

“My three takeaways from this program are:

  1. In-depth 2. Practical techniques that can be immediately applied 3. Program consistently applies to peds you will see in office

I have more confidence working with young children. I am gaining needed knowledge regarding TOTs patients.

I have a 2-month-old breast feeding patient that had lost significant weight and mother was being pushed to switch to formula. I have been applying my knowledge from Dr. Rosen’s classes and he has gained 9 oz since starting care 2.5 weeks ago without having to switch to bottle or formula.

I have been sharing Dr. Rosen’s class with my fellow chiropractors and encouraging them to enroll in the online classes!”

Elizabeth Siefken, DC

“This program has easily digestible information, clear ways to locate restrictions and correct them.

My personal goal for my practice this year is to expand the pediatric patient population I see-having this information is only going to help that grow and benefit so many!

I haven’t had a patient yet since finishing this class where I could apply my new knowledge but I can’t wait. I have had previous patients with difficulty latching and have used my minimal cranial experience, which did help baby feed a little easier, so I know going in with this information my treatments will be so much more effective.

I loved this class and all the information it provided us with, so excited to take this out and start helping others! I also wanted to say thank you for making it available for longer than the course took – I had some family issues going on during the holidays which put work on hold and put this course on the back burner. I am very grateful for the chance to finish the class and learn the awesome material.”

Emily Diaz, DC

“I found it very helpful to review what was taught with the call to actions. It also serves as a nice workbook to look through for key highlights of each topic. I also enjoyed the diagram that went along with some of the adjusting protocols for a better visual of finger contact. The handouts that are typed up are helpful as well to be able to review what was talked about outside of the PowerPoint slides.

I personally have had two children with tight oral tissues and cranial distortions and it was helpful to get a peace of mind of corrections that could be made and alterations that are possible. I also take care of a lot of families specifically for breastfeeding and now I have a better understanding of how to adjust for palate distortions which are affecting the infant’s ability to get a good latch.

I was struggling with how to correct for the sphenobasilar distortions because before I was not correcting them intraorally and now that I have more knowledge on the contact points to look for I was able to get more movement in the joint and see the release happen in my infants in practice.

I have taken a few cranial adjusting classes and every time I hear something that I missed before which was the missing link to something I had been struggling with. I grasp a better understanding around cranial adjusting and the nuance in the distortion patterns.”

Alison Day, DC

“I’ve really enjoyed all of the cranial portions of this course; it was an unexpected but pleasant surprise.

I have a better understanding of different cranial adjustments and how important that cranial motion is, particularly in the developing child.

I have been checking the sphenoid in all my babies, as well as some children and adults. I need to review some of the internal/oral adjustments to make sure I understand them correctly before I start messing around with them.

I wished I would have learned more about actual tongue-ties – I feel like we didn’t really get into it at all, and that the course was really focused on palate and cranial work (which is also great, but it’s not what I expected which led to some disappointment). Thank you for your hard work with this course.”

Marie-Pier Sauriol, DC

“The program is straightforward and clears up much of the confusion surrounding tethered oral tissue and the chiropractor’s role in patient care.

The program is going to help me streamline my processes within my office as I train my associate doctors to handle these cases well and with a clear understanding of how to support the patient and their family.

We haven’t started applying all of the techniques. The main technique we have added in the fruit jar thus far.

I am grateful for the work you both put into this course. It’s going to be so helpful to me and has a great butterfly effect that goes out into the world from each doctor you train. Thank you!!”

Kelly Barnette, DC

“I will definitely share with others your genuine & thoughtful interaction with students & how supportive you both are of the learning success of your students & the quality of the pediatric care that we bring to our communities.

I’m still in the process of learning the information & applying it into practice. I’ve read through the course materials, watched the videos & slowly trying things in practice.

So far, I’ve mostly been implementing the palpation of the palate & cranium. It’s been a slow process to implement more but I’m working on it

This program has opened up new questions & curiosities that I’d like to learn more about concussion, cranial adjusting, TMD, scoliosis, etc. At some point, I would love to work my way through all of your courses!”

Daniela Arciero, DC

“My three takeaways from this program are:

  1. Know your contacts 2. It is our job as chiropractors to assist our patients to maintain the greatest level in our patient regardless of whether they choose to have surgical intervention or take the wait and see approach. 3. Fruit jar series

I have been able to better assess and address patients with tongue ties.

We had a mom that had had difficulty nursing her infant and gave up on breastfeeding, she had dealt with multiple episodes of mastitis, the child was colicky, and mom was near postpartum depression. Using the techniques we learned in this course, I was able to assist the child especially with expansion of palate and improvement of tongue movement and the child has been sleeping and eating better.

Thank you for putting this course together.”

Anastasia Lander, DC

 

“The material is broken down in digestible pieces, the videos are short and can be watched multiple times, material is applicable in practice.

My son had tongue tie and the program has allowed me to work on him and many other babies.

I recently worked on a newborn with severe plagiocephaly and tongue tie utilizing these techniques with great success

Love the classes; hope to see them in a hands-on class soon.”

Elizabeth Sanchez, DC

“This program has very good information that every chiropractor should have in their tool pack.

I feel more confident evaluating the cranium and tongue-tie, and correcting/adjusting.

I’m excited to start the SOT pediatric series in person!”
