The Hobson Institute is a one-of-a-kind physical therapy center with a focus on head, neck and breathing health. With groundbreaking solutions to correct the symptoms of asthma, attention deficit disorders, anxiety, chronic fatigue, sleep apnea, tongue-tie and tongue thrust, lisping, improper swallowing, digestive issues and more, the Hobson Institute transforms and restores head, neck and breathing health across the Midwest.
As one of a few practitioners that tout such cutting-edge services, Dr. Jennifer Flage Hobson is eager to share how minor adjustments to habitual behaviors in breathing, posture and alignment can reshape her patients’ lives. She has taught courses related to her myofunctional therapies and breathing techniques and continues to educate health professionals and patients alike on the health benefits of proper breathing.
After my car accident, I needed jaw reconstruction and facial plastic surgery. I was so grateful to have had Dr. Hobson's cranio-facial specialists as a part of my medical team. The specialists collaborated well with my medical doctors and surgeons, and were patient with me when I had questions about my progress and needed someone to explain what to expect during each phase. I am back to full jaw joint mobility and my facial swelling and scarring is minimal to none now.
I have recovered from my jaw reconstruction thanks to the fantastic treatment by Dr. Hobson. I learned how correct posture, jaw mechanics and specific exercises affect my chewing and speech. I regained 100 percent of my mobility and function, and have no residual swelling or pain.
I began seeing Dr. Hobson for severe pain in my jaw, neck, shoulders and head. I am highly skeptical of alleged 'breakthrough' health treatments, unless fully supported by research and experience. When Dr. Hobson explained how dry needling works and showed me research, I decided to proceed. The treatments made an enormous difference in my quality of life. My pain (and the knots in my muscles) disappeared after a few treatments. After 20 years of suffering I am finally able to fully enjoy a life free of head, neck and jaw pain.
Thanks to Dr. Hobson and the dry needling therapy she administered, I have been able to better understand and reduce the severity and duration of my back pain.
