The osteopathic approach to treating infants with tongue tie
What is tongue-tie (Ankyloglossia)? How do we test and diagnose it? What are the symptoms? What do we treat pre & post frenotomy ? What do we treat if the infant does not undergo a frenotomy? Why do we see more tongue tied infants ? Is it because we are better at diagnosing them or maybe over diagnosing ?
The courses will focus on the treatment of infants, but the approach is applicable to the treatment of older children and adults.
