MYOFUNCTIONAL THERAPY IN BATTLE CREEK
What is Myofunctional Therapy?
Myofunctional therapy is the treatment of orofacial myofunctional disorders (OMDs), which affect the function and muscles of your face, mouth, and neck and can affect anyone – from infants to elderly. Those who participate in myofunctional therapy get incredible results and benefits from it – including decreased pain, improved function, and increased comfort, so it’s easier to eat, speak, breathe, and sleep. The relief you receive from the therapy can be life-changing.
Learning to breathe and use the tongue properly is the key to airway development. Training at an early age can reduce or eliminate the need for more extensive procedures later in life. These include orthodontics, sleep apnea, GERD, heart disease, etc. Beginning with a comprehensive evaluation our therapy programs work toward improving oral and facial muscle strength, swallowing, eating, breathing, tongue-tie and sleep apnea.
