NMT for TMJ

NMT for TMJ

Many dentists are seeking professionals specifically trained in intraoral manual therapy applications for Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. The techniques taught throughout this course have a high rate of TMD resolution that many oral doctors look for.

This is a deep therapeutic application to the neck, shoulders, intra-oral, cranial and extraocular muscles. It is designed to utilize the mechanical and physiological processes of the musculoskeletal system to correct and rehabilitate injured, traumatized or fatigued or overused muscles of these areas. It will help a client/patient to manage pain and increase quality and well being. This class is 8 hours of massage continuing education hours.


Learner Objectives - After taking this class, the student will be able to:

  • Understand the basic principles of neuromuscular physiology.
     
  • Recognize specific muscular and biomechanical dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint and surrounding supportive structures.
     
  • Understand the mechanics of TMJ and postural dynamics that influence the joint.
     
  • Apply the appropriate techniques to the involved areas to regain homeostasis and proper biomechanical functioning of the involved musculature.
     
  • Recognize and deduce problematic areas and risks associated with TMD.
     
  • Understand and name specific muscles being treated, including origin, insertion, actions, the bones and their landmarks so treatment to these areas can maximize biomechanical functions.

If you cancel more than 30 days prior to the start of the class, you can get a refund of your tuition. If you cancel less than 30 days prior to the scheduled class, you will still receive a credit to take the same class at a later time. You can also take a different class at a different location.

CLASS SIZES

All of our classes have minimum and maximum enrollments that can be accepted. If a class is getting close to being full, we may close online enrollment. If a class is closed online, you may still call us at #800-201-2247 to see if there are any additional spaces or to go on a waiting list. If you want to go, let us know!  On rare occasions, we do not meet the minimum number of enrollees or an unexpected situation occurs and we need to cancel or reschedule a class. Please confirm that your class will be going forward prior to making any non-refundable travel arrangements. 

STAYING OVERNIGHT?

The best option would be to stay right at the hotel where the class is taught, so we try to set up room blocks for students at lower than listed prices. This is not always available however. When calling, ask the front desk about this. If they are not aware, try the sales office. NOTE: Before doing this, check out discount websites such as hotels.com, trivago.com or tripadvisor.com. Sometimes there are nearby hotels, some even within walking distance, that offer better rates.
