Examination of the Temporomandibular Joint - Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    This course will concentrate on examination of the TMJ and also briefly cover examination of other structures for dysfunction related to the TMJ. Examination is discussed under two main sections:

    Subjective examination, in which patients are questioned about their symptoms, how they interfere with daily activities and the history of the symptoms; Objective examination, the physical examination of musculoskeletal structures.

    Examination of the TMJ should include the examination of dental occlusion, masticatory muscles, suprahyoid muscles, the upper cervical spine and the cervical musculature, as all these structures are functionally interdependent.

    The functional interdependence of the TMJs with dental occlusion and with the upper cervical spine is outlined. Due to this interdependence and to overlapping presentation of pain referral from the TMJs and from the upper cervical spine, it is essential that the clinician examine in details these structures as possible sources of symptoms in patients with facial pain and headache.

Treatment of the Temporomandibular Joint - Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    The management of the common clinical syndromes presented in this course are:


    1. Myofascial pain dysfunction (MPD) syndrome
    2. Post-fracture of the mandible and/or maxilla
    3. Post-extraction of wisdom teeth
    4. TMJ osteoarthritis
    5. TMJ clicking
    6. Pain secondary to new or remodelled dentures
    7. TMJ locking
    8. Headache, earache, facial pain.


    Presentation of these clinical symptoms will serve to emphasise that in many cases, the symptoms are multifactorial in aetiology and may require diagnostic and treatment skills of dentists, doctors and physiotherapists. This multidisciplinary approach has been found to offer solutions to complex problems

Temporomandibular Joint - Intergrated Approach to Manual Therapy and Excercise

R400.00

3 CEUs

    TMJ affects millions of people around the world, most of whom are young women. Because the condition is multifactorial in nature (articular, myofascial, intra articular disc, cervical spine and stress) it is a challenging disorder to treat.

    This on-line course will demonstrate how manual therapy techniques can be applied in order to render the movement painless as well as help to maintain correct anatomical relationships between the affected components while normal movement patterns are re-established.
