Liana Sved is a physical therapist and orofacial myofunctional therapist specializing in working with patients who present with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). She joins Hallie for a fascinating conversation on the effects of TMD on the body and overall optimal function. They cover everything from how TMD pain can be felt in other parts of the orofacial structure, the importance of educating patients and allowing them to make an informed decision, how having a tongue tie can lead to TMD and the difficulties of navigating our healthcare system. If you or your patients have orofacial pain or TMD; this is a must listen!
Listening to Ms. Sved mention the bearer of bad news, that they may have sleep apnea, tmj and so many things related referred, however, me as a speech therapist too feel like a bearer of bad news, when I say something as basic as your child may have a feeding disorder and the parents have first heard this and believe it and get treatment for something like that. if they are not eating they can t pronounce properly or if you not having a good routine relationship with parent, they will not talk, either. So, yes always feel like the bearer of bad news and fighting a battle.
