Unilateral face pulling
« on: January 08, 2014, 01:59:26 am »
Has anyone tried this? I poped a rubber band on one of my brackets yesterday during face pulling because i tried to get more pull on the other side which is lagging behind. I'm a bit concerned about the left side and I'd like for it to catch up. I do, however, hardly feel anything on that side while FP unless I use an extra rubber band on that side alone or in some other way extend more force to that side. Anyone thought about this, had the same problem?

Yeah I've been thinking about and been trying it too somewhat since the left side of my face is not as developed. It just feels like it isn't as active as the right hand side when I'm face pulling and is begging for extra pressure. I think someone mention to keep pressure even otherwise an asymmetry maybe introduced so I guess it makes since that uneven pulling could help to correct one?

Precise my thinking! I know there's supposed to be somewhat a differance between the both halves of the face but I imagine that's a minor discrepancy. In my case (so far in the treatment) it's a matter of shallow cheekbones and nomexisting cheekbones.

My initial thought was to apply preassure to both sides to encourage general movement and to put some extra force on the laging side but after reading your reply I'm thinking that perhaps it's a matter of treating both sides say for 20 min and ONLY the laging side for 5-10 min. I'm going to try that. At least to hinder the extra preassure on one side to make the paperclip mess up the bracket again.
