Course Description:

This last weekend is given over to advanced techniques to treat the extremely sensitive areas of the neck and mouth. This weekend will start with a quick review of Neuromuscular Therapy, for those participants who were not able to attend the first class. Saturday will introduce the concept of “Forward Head Posture” with the many medical conditions associated with this distortion. The morning will include a review of the musculature and medical conditions possible with this distortion. The afternoon will cover the treatment protocol, with lots of practice time. Sunday will introduce TMJ dysfunction and teach the treatment protocol, using the same teaching techniques. This day will also have time for participants to bring in all information available with their “trouble clients”, which the class will use to develop a treatment protocol for that therapist to take home and use in their own practice immediately.
