Many people we see have tension headaches and migraines that can be linked to chronic neck tension.
Posterior tongue-tie, or restriction of mobility of the back half of the tongue can be a hidden contributor to these problems when muscles of the neck are recruited in compensation – including during swallowing.
In this dear patient’s case, we discovered that using a straw bottle was compounding the dysfunction.
Her symptoms were alleviated by getting closer to the root of the issue with myofunctional therapy, tongue-tie release and changing to drink bottles that didn’t require sucking.
Any surgical procedure carries risk, and individual results may vary.
Before proceeding with this surgery, you should seek a second opinion with an appropriately qualified practitioner.
