What is an integrative approach and why do I need to do it
It is important to have a collaborative approach for overall health and improves therapy results. For example after the full evaluation, I will determine, based on my findings, if you need to see an ear nose a throat doctor for an evaluation for a deviated septum, or large tonsil and adenoids that can be blocking your airway. Or I may also send you to an orthodontist or dentist to expand the roof of your mouth to optimize your airway. Each individual will vary. Collaboration is key. We will also be your support and help guide you through the process of when to see these providers and we may recommend certain providers in your area
Do I have to follow the treatment plan?
Depends on what you want as an end result. If you want to be the most healthy you can be, then yes, follow the treatment plan. If you are okay with subpar results then you do not have too. It takes a team to collaborate and to transform the health of a person. I am a huge advocate for doing things correctly the first time around. If you are going to do myofunctional therapy, my recommendation is to go all in, no skipping corners.
Am I too old for myofunctional therapy?
