There is a growing body of evidence linking Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) with airway-related issues. For individuals with ADHD, Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) can provide several benefits. Research has shown that improving breathing patterns and increasing oxygen flow to the brain can help to reduce symptoms linked to ADHD such as hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention. Additionally, the therapy can help to reduce stress and anxiety, which are common co-occurring conditions in individuals with ADHD.
In summary, OMT can help individuals with ADHD by addressing Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs), improving breathing patterns, reducing sleep-related breathing disorders, and reducing stress and anxiety. By improving these areas, individuals with ADHD may experience an improvement in their overall health and a reduction in ADHD symptoms.
