Our Collaborative Approach to Health, Function + Symmetry
THE MIND, BODY, BREATH CONNECTION
The mind, body, and breath are intimately connected to one another. If an imbalance exists within this connection, one's ability to grow, develop, and function with health may become limited. Dr. Hilary Pada had her eyes opened to a pattern of limitations and struggles afflicting patients, and noticed there were common threads within their stories. With more than twenty years of dental experience and knowledge, she has come to understand that a myofunctional approach to health care is where her future purpose lies. Collaboration with a variety of therapists and consultations from her colleagues is redirecting the trajectory of health and the natural potential of wellness for our community of patients.
What is Myofunctional Care?
Myofunctional Care is a team approach to improving overall body wellness. Following thorough diagnosis of breathing and body conditions, we begin to establish a healthy airway. We may recommend body-work and muscle training in conjunction with medical and dental procedures to idealize oral, facial structural growth, and physiologic function. Myofunctional Treatment along with patients' adoption and maintenance of new personal habits acts as the catalyst for neuromuscular re-education, or re-patterning, of the oral facial muscles. This allows for the improvement of breathing, speaking, eating, sleeping, and overall physical and mental health
