Course Description

Evaluation and Treatment of the TMD Patient Utilizing a Physical Therapy/Dental Coordinated Approach” is a 2-day lecture and lab-based course developed by Mr. Esser. This course presents the fundamental principles underlying the most common temporomandibular joint dysfunctions and the relationships between occlusion, the TMJ, the cranium, and the upper cervical spine. The course provides an algorithmic approach (LPTMJ format) for evaluation of the TMJ and upper cervical area. Accurate evaluation is key to appropriate treatment planning for this complex patient population, incorporating both physical therapy and dentistry. Treatment techniques presented will include manual therapy for the TMJ and upper cervical area, TMJ splinting, and therapeutic exercise for the TMJ and upper cervical area.   ​
