A Manual Therapy Approach to Evaluation and Treatment of TMJ Dysfunction(s) and Craniofascial Pain.

In this 7.5 Hour course Frank Dieckman, PT presents Manual Physical Therapy

based evaluation and treatment strategies for the patient with temporomandibular

joint dysfunction. The Otolaryngologist community report that as many as 35% of

their patients present with signs and symptoms consistent with TMJD and Physical

Therapists are ideally situated to provide these patients with appropriate care. In this

course you will learn the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics associated with TMJ

dysfunction and the evidence based evaluation and treatment interventions that will

lead to successful outcomes. This is a lab/lecture course that will emphasize the

contributions of the PT/PTA team. Strategies for documentation, clinical productivity

and marketing will be included! Manual Physical Therapy based evaluation and treatment strategies
