Learn to be a TMJ Specialist with this TMD Course
A wonderful 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. After that we will learn the common areas of pathology and how we can rebalance the tissues to restore harmony to this difficult joint. More time will be spent on the tissues including external and internal tissues and how to reposition the disc within the joint.
Do you have an enormous number of your clients suffering with TMJ headache, 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 their TMJ Specialist!
Prepare to 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.
