If your child is presenting with tongue tie or lip tie, a serious condition affecting 25% of babies with breastfeeding issues, you’re going to need a doctor who has the knowledge and experience to deal with this condition. Dr. Alex Kaminsky of CranioSacral Therapy NY specializes in treating these conditions with a non-invasive, gentle, hands-on therapy that releases tissues naturally. While surgery is an option, it’s often very difficult to perform given the small size of the affected area. And, in some cases, removed tissues will regrow causing the same problem.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK, N.Y. — September 14, 2020 — CranioSacral Therapy NY specializes in tongue tie treatment for infants and children.
Tongue tie or lip tie is a serious condition affecting nearly 25% of babies with issues breastfeeding, whether diagnosed with one or both issues.
A baby born with a tongue tie has a shorter, thicker, or tighter band of tissue connecting the bottom of the tongue to the floor of the mouth. A lip tie is when the piece of tissue behind your upper lip is too thick or short, preventing it from moving freely.
“These conditions can make it difficult for a baby to breastfeed and it has the potential of causing pain, soreness, or cracking in the mother,” said Dr. Alex Kaminsky, a chiropractor in CranioSacral Therapy in NY. “Once detected, Posterior Tongue Tie or Posterior Lip Tie needs to be corrected or the child could develop several health issues, such as headaches, scoliosis, torticollis, developmental delays, speech impairment, and more.”
Patients diagnosed with PTT or PLT can receive hands-on therapy for the condition from Dr. Kaminsky. Non-invasive, myofascial therapies help relax the tension surrounding the tongue, mouth, and lips. The result is improved mobility and function.
Tongue tie revision surgery is also available for severe cases that can’t be corrected with therapy. Due to the precision needed for a 1 mm incision, the surgery can be risky. And in many cases, the tissue will regrow and reconnect. This is the same tissue that was snipped or lasered during the surgery.
“We recommend that it’s always better to release the tissues naturally with craniosacral therapy from an experienced practitioner,” said Dr. Kaminsky.
