Inova Alexandria Hospital offers a specialized Orofacial Myofunctional program, which includes structured treatment plans provided by a trained Orofacial Myologist.
We provide treatment for children, teens, and adults with abnormal lip, tongue, and jaw resting positions or improper swallow patterns or sucking habits that impact their orofacial development, speech or swallowing.
What are Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders?
Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders are atypical, adaptive patterns that emerge in the absence of normalized patterns within the orofacial complex. The regular presence of these adaptive movements can often result in a variety of disturbances. An example of one such disorder is Childhood Apraxia of Speech.
