1 Hour


Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) with postural abnormalities appear prevalent in patients presenting in chiropractic offices. The existence of a relationship between neck pain and TMD is an important relevant finding. It is the goal of the dentist and chiropractor to normalize posture and align the masticatory and cranio-cervical system within an individual patient's adaptive capacity. The relationship between the masticatory and cervical muscles is important when considering the effects of head posture and the resting position of the mandible. This webinar will give an introductory look into the examination and management of TMD posturally related syndromes.

"I did learn a few things, but some of the practical info could have been included. Exercises, perhaps a video of the jaw motion to aid the discussion. I did learn tidbits, but could have learned a lot more from this (a photo of medial vs lateral when describing it; visuals of the specific exercises)"
