An Example Of How The Tongue Affects The Craniofacial Shape

The tongue muscle is a group of muscles that work unlike any other muscle we have in our body. It has a free end and resembles the tentacles of an octopus. It is the most dynamic and strongest muscle in our head. We use it to speak, swallow, and breathe. We don't survive as a species if we can't swallow. We know that proper swallowing mechanics promotes normal craniofacial development. Breastfeeding encourages proper tongue mechanics. A reverse swallowing mechanism (aka - tongue thrust) promotes a narrow, high palate and jaw that is often linked with bigger problems such as obstructive…

Stem Cells in the Cranial Sutures and More: In Support of Cranial Osteopathy

Two Opposing Models? The medical profession has historically operated with the model that health can be achieved solely as a series of biochemical reactions. “Better living through chemistry” is a common quote that can be found in relation to this. Historically, osteopathic physicians (D.O.’s) have been attacked and dismissed for practicing “manual medicine.” D.O.’s argued that they operate on a different aspect of health by optimizing the structure. Critics have complained that there is “no evidence” for this model. Science is showing more and more the plausibility of this in other fields besides osteopathy. The goal with this article is…
