What is an integrative approach and why do I need to do it

Lots of severe health issues down the road. Refer to tongue thrust tab.

I like collaborating with other providers. I find that it is crucial in your care and for the best outcome in your health.  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. This is what you deserve. This is how healthcare should look like. I will also be your support and help guide you through the process as well as look for providers in your area to collaborate with.

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?

Never. As we get older, our bodies tend to feel aches and pains with symptoms we have never experienced before. It doesn't have to be this way. What would it be like for you if you didn't experience those aches and pains and what would it be like for you to feel healthy?
