6.5 CPD Hours (submitted for Formal Learning Hours)

Presented by Chiropractor Dr Catriona McNamarra with guest lecturer Dr Dan Hanson.

This course will serve to teach bodyworkers (such as chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists) the protocols for identification, diagnosis, and manual therapy treatment and after-care of lip and tongue ties for all age groups.

Whilst focusing on education of bodyworkers and manual therapists, other allied practitioners such as dentists, lactation consultants, speech pathologists and occupational therapists and others addressing oral restrictions will benefit from attendance.

Valuable insight will be given by body workers who are highly experienced in working collaboratively with patients with oral restriction. The vital role of their profession in effective diagnosis and treatment of patients with oral restrictions will be highlighted.

  • Body Workers / Manual Therapists
  • Lactation Consultants and mid-wives wishing to work collaboratively with body workers
  • All other health professionals with an interest in the surgical treatment of oral restrictions
  • Laser surgeons (such as dentists) and their entire team

What you will learn:

  • Oral restrictions and Tongue Function from a neurological and musculoskeletal perspective
  • Diagnosis, examination and management of a patient with tongue tie: pre and post operatively
  • Timing of the laser frenectomy in relation to co-morbidities
  • Educating families about the role of Chiropractor/bodyworker in a multidisciplinary team approach
  • Hands on practical application of knowledge ready to use when back in the office
