Course Overview

The Eclectic Approach to TMD presents a modern manual therapy look at the evaluation and treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. There is a lack of knowledge in the screening and treatment of this condition which may be affecting many of your upper quarter patients, especially those with concurrent headaches and/or cervical dysfunction. The Eclectic Approach uses Movement Screen and a Repeated Motions Exam to help classify the patient and find relevant movement and motor control issues. A strong emphasis on modern Pain Science Education and home exercises is used to make the patient independent of passive care. Manual therapy uses The EDGE Tool for Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation or IASTM, as well as joint mobilization for the upper cervical spine and TMJ, function mobilization, and thrust manipulation of the cervical and upper thoracic regions.

Course Objectives

Participants will be able to

  • Describe the relevant cervicocraniomandibular anatomy
  • Describe the effects of head/neck posture on mandible position
  • Perform a UQ Movement Screen and Repeated Motions Exam to help classify the patient for movement strategies and manual therapy
  • Educate the patient on self care and self assessment
  • Perform a variety of soft tissue and joint mobilization/thrust manipulation to reset the patient’s nervous system

Who is this course for?

PT, MD, DO, ATC, MT, and everyone interested in Manual Therapy approach.
