Learn to be a Master
Vancouver: April 28 & 29, 2018
Vernon: Possible dates in fall 2018
This celebrated workshop explores the TMJ. If you learn and master this material you could have a practice full of TMJ patients in very little time. TMJ pain and dysfunction is so common that almost everyone has experienced it at one time or another. When you are effective in helping these suffering people the flood gates will open and your waiting room will need to be enlarged.
No cranial experience is necessary for this course. I will be discussing aspects of how the cranium effects the TMJ; but, we will not be doing any cranial manipulations. This is covered in DynamicTherapies.com's cranial courses.
This is a comprehensive workshop on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and soft tissues involved.
We will walk through the functional anatomy and physiology of movement of the TMJ. Measuring the movement of the jaw and taking a base line will help us determine if the problem is muscular or derangement of the joint. (The measuring tool is included in the cost of the tuition.) The “Achilles heel” of the TMJ will be explored. Then we will learn the common areas of pathology and how we can rebalance the tissues to restore harmony to this difficult joint. These tissues include external and internal tissues and how to reposition the disc within the joint.
There are an enormous number of your clients suffering with pain and noises in the TMJ. You will be given the tools to help with their suffering and as a result build your practice through word of mouth.
You will be shown clear directions for homecare to help progress and maintain the changes you facilitate in your treatment room. Your patients will feel confident in your knowledge and understanding of this often-misunderstood area after you have taken this course.Here are some of the things you will learn about and learn to do during this two-day workshop.
