TMJ, TRIGEMINAL AND UPPER CERVICAL SPINE – A MANUAL THERAPY APPROACH
October 4, 2019 - October 6, 2019$650
BOC Advanced Level
The TMJ, Trigeminal, Upper Cervical Spine are interconnected both mechanically and physiologically. New research points to the sympathetic arm of the Trigeminal nerve being more problematic in inflammatory conditions. Arthrokenimatics, Dysfunction and adaptations will be addresses as it presents to patients presenting with co-morbidities of both Jaw, Cervical spine and the role of the Trigeminal nerve.
This class looks at this new information in treating TMD inflammatory conditions through Manual Therapy.
Embryology of TMJ, CN 5, CN 10 and the sympathetic neurology will be covered in both lecture and laboratory sessions.
18 contact hours – 18 1-A hours anticipated – NATA/BOC Approved Provider #P8765 NCBTMB Approved Provider #1597 AMBP School Member #1084335
Target Audience: Healthcare providers including, but not limited to: MD,DO,PT,AT,DC,MT,RN,OT, and other licensed or certified healthcare providers.
At the conclusion of the presentation, the participant should be able to:
1. Identify the concepts and components of Trigeminal, TMJ and Cervical dysfunction.
2. Differentiate between normal and abnormal imbalances in the trigeminal, sympathetic and Vagal nerves.
3. Formulate a working knowledge of the imbalances in the trigeminal, TMJ and Cervical spine and use this model in organizing an assessment and treatment plan.
4. Assess the trigeminal TMJ and Cervical Spine implications of somatic dysfunction in the same areas in order to provide appropriate treatment.
5.Apply Manual Therapy Techniques to change the areas of trigeminal, TMJ and Cervical dysfunction.
