The TMJ is a region that is often glossed over by many Chiropractors because we typically get minimal exposure through our education. The TMJ is incredibly important not only to the functions of eating and speaking but in the role of neck and upper back stability. In this hour with Dr. Kevin, we will cover anatomy, normal/abnormal movement patterns/function, examination and treatment options. Whether you are a jaw novice or an expert, the concepts we discuss should be useful for your level of clinical knowledge and give you more confidence to address the TMJ with your patients.
