The tempopomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complex areas of the human skeletal system. When looking at the human anatomy, it’s at the top of the chain! Virtually all deviations from planes of gravity cause imbalances: a pronated foot, rotated innominate or head forward position are prime examples that will influence the arthrokinematics of the joint. And as a bilateral joint, anything that alters biomechanics on one side inversely affects the contralateral side!
How do we know if the lesion is a muscular or capsular event? And what are the best therapeutic exercise interventions?
Learn how to use joint mobilizations, intra and extra oral muscle work and osteopathic muscle energy technique to help resolve these issues. In this workshop you will learn to be proficient and confident in assessing and treating an area that many therapists avoid!
Wear comfortable sports style clothing to this class as minimal disrobing is necessary.
Bring a pen to jot down salient points in the provided booklet.
