Why Baby Still Needs Craniosacral Therapy After Frenotomy 21st July 2020

Some mothers are wondering why their baby is still not latching and breastfeeding optimally even after a frenotomy procedure.  Frenotomy is the procedure in which the lingual frenulum is cut.

My intention is to support baby’s nervous system to self-regulate function of the tongue, suck-breathe-swallow reflex, in order to successfully latch and breastfeed after the frenotomy procedure.   As you can see below, the anatomy of tongue consists of tongue, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and lymphs.   Babies are the ones that need comprehensive care to help their bodies unwind, repair and self-regulate.
Look At The Anatomy Of The Tongue.
The tongue is anchored to the mouth by webs of tough tissue and mucosa. The tether holding down the front of the tongue is called the frenum. In the back of the mouth, the tongue is anchored into the hyoid bone. The tongue is vital for chewing and swallowing food, as well as for speech.

There are numerous important structures surrounding the tongue.

Relationship with:

Anterior and lateral - teeth
Superior - hard and soft palates
Inferior - mucosa of the floor of the oral cavity, sublingual salivary glands, posterior wall of oropharynx
Posterior - epiglottis, pharyngeal inlet
Lateral - palatoglossal and palatopharyngeal arches
Muscles governing tongue:
Intrinsic superior longitudinal, vertical, transverse, inferior longitudinal muscles 
Extrinsic -  genioglossus, hypoglossus, styloglossus, palatoglossus muscles
Marginal, central, dorsal, submandibular, jugulo-omohyoid, deep cervical lymph nodes
Blood vessels:
Lingual artery (dorsal lingual, sublingual, deep lingual arteries), ascending palatine, tonsillar, ascending pharyngeal arteries
Hypoglossal nerve, pharyngeal plexus, lingual nerve, glossopharyngeal nerve, facial nerve, vagus nerve, chorda tympani
