Ep. 424 Myofunctional Therapy and Chiropractic Care for Adults with Heidi Giasson, Leslie Farrin, and Dr. Andrea Smith

We continue our myofunctional therapy series this month with a focus on chiropractic care for adults.

We dive into the last part of our Myofunctional Therapy series today and examine the role of interdisciplinary care with our chiropractic colleague Dr. Andrea Smith. This episode explores how our mind and body are connected, and what types of assessments, evaluations, and work is needed to help our patients achieve optimal health and how a myofunctional therapist plays a role in this. Special thanks to Heidi Giasson and Leslie Farrin for their work and connections in making this episode happen!

If you want to explore more, be sure to go back to the first episode of this series and listen to all 5 parts. Feel free to reach out to our experts Heidi, Leslie, and Dr. Smith
