Tongue-Tie and Palate Evaluation Procedures

Tongue-tie, or ankyloglossia, can significantly impact an individual’s ability to speak, eat/nurse, swallow, breathe properly as well as impair proper cranial bone growth patterns. Understanding the assessment and management of tongue-tie is essential for healthcare professionals working with patients who may be affected by this condition.

In addition to tongue-tie, the evaluation of the palate plays a vital role in evaluating and treating various speech, breathing, eating, and swallowing disorders. The palate consists of the hard and soft tissues at the roof of the mouth. This course will delve into the techniques and procedures used to assess the structure and function of the palate, enabling you to better evaluate and address issues related to its functioning.

Throughout this course, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the tongue and palate, the various types and classifications of tongue-tie, and the impact these conditions can have on function and development. You will also explore specific evaluation techniques that will aid in diagnosing and evaluating and managing tongue-tie and palate-related concerns.

“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!”
