Basic Course Module 1

Gcm1Temporomandibular dysfunction and its functional relationships

Primary treatment of temporomandibular dysfunction, its functional relationship to pain mechanisms of relevant structures of the temporomandibular region, the function of the temporomandibular joint and its neurophysiological, biomechanical and functional relationship to the cervical spine, the cranium and the nervous system.

The subjective physical examination, assessment and treatment techniques of the temporomandibular region and an update of neurobiological and anatomical skills about function of the temporomandibular region are in focus of this seminar.
