Description of the course
The TMJ – “Practical Implications” course draws upon the knowledge gained in the "Module 4 course" to further explore the effects on the body of a dysfunctional TMJ. Also, "Applied Kinesiology" techniques to allow more specificity in the locating of "Optimal Functional Position" as described in the "Module 4" course.
Assessment techniques are covered which graphically illustrate the effects on the body relating to pelvis, knees and ankle, cranial, and locally in and around the TMJ.
A unique "Atlas", "Sphenoid" and "Temporal" correction is included to effectively treat the more resistant TMJ issues.
Class teaching format
Classroom interactive presentation, including lecture and practical. Participants will be instructed on the assessment process and then given time to assess and treat - including the concepts covered in the class. Finally, re-evaluation of the assessments to validate the treatment outcomes.
Time efficient, more effective treatment assessment and correction techniques for troubleshooting TMJ issues. Correction techniques that allow for Atlas, Sphenoid and Temporal bones treatment, where standard TMJ corrections are not effective.
The "Module 5" course content will allow the astute practitioner to build upon the knowledge gained in the "Module 4" course. The effects of TMD are global to the body and as such can affect every part of the body. Movement, gait, and posture etc. along with many other local conditions such as headaches, migraines, vision impairment, vertigo, etc.
The Bowen therapist must be aware of the potential presenting dysfunctions and have assessment tools to isolate the cause. Assessments tools covered in this course provide the therapist with the necessary skills and correction techniques to bring about balance in the TMJ and body.
Review and understand the concepts covered in the "Module 4" course. Assess and understand the relevance of the potential effects on the body; a) Globally, b) Locally, c) at the TMJ joint d) Influencing factors e) Atlas f) Sphenoid and g) Temporal.
Learn correction techniques to apply to make the appropriate changes.
