CF2 - Intermediate Cranio Facial - Instructed by Mark Strickland, PT, OCS, MTC, Cert MDT, CFC, CCTT, CODN (Mar 30 - 31, 2019)
Mar 30 - 31, 2019 | CEUs 15.00 | USD $495 | Beaverton, Oregon
CF2 - Intermediate Cranio Facial - Instructed by Mark Strickland, PT, OCS, MTC, Cert MDT, CFC, CCTT, CODN is organized by University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) and will be held from Mar 30 - 31, 2019 at Beaverton, Oregon, United States of America. Hours: 15 Hours, 1.5 CEUs Prerequisite: Basic Cranio Facial (available online) Who Attends: Physical Therapists Description: This seminar will primarily be focused on displacement of the intra-articular disc of the TMJ, but will also cover the role of the subcranial spine in the causation of craniofacial pain and the association between detrimental oral habits (parafunctions) and craniofacial pain. Medial and lateral disc subluxations will be carefully examined, as will disc-condyle and disc-eminence subluxations. The progression of disc subluxation and other intra-articular pathology will be demonstrated by the use of clinical examples and all disorders will be illustrated by imaging. The imaging methods used in the diagnosis and management of the TMJ will be explained; this includes transcranial radiographs and tomography, as well as MRI, used for diagnosis and clinical management of intra-articular disc displacements. The lab sessions will focus on assessment of intra-articular pathology, as well as preparations of the TMJ and subcranial spine for reduction of the intra-articular disc. Finally, participants will have the chance to practice disc reduction and subsequent stabilization of the disc in the reduced position. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this seminar the attendee should be able to: • Explain the concept of progression of intracapsular temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disc pathology as an initial stage of dysfunction. • Discuss how a medial or lateral disc can progress to an anterior disc subluxation. • Predict the effect of oral bad habits in children and adults. • Describe the process of craniomandibular parafunction (teeth grinding) as a cause of micro repetitive trauma. • Explain the loaded gliding of the TMJ with systemic joint laxity as a cause of progressive joint disc pathology and degenerative joint disease. • Apply examination and treatment techniques to soft and hard tissues of the maxillofacial region with special emphasis on proper force and direction to avoid injury. • Explain the major cause of condylar height loss and consequential facial assymmetry. • Identify the signs and symptoms of vascular irritation for the TMJ. • Apply manual and muscular techniques for disc subluxations. • Discuss the use of removable interoclusal appliances for joint stabilization.
CF3 - Advanced Cranio Facial - Instructed by Mark Strickland, PT, OCS, MTC, Cert MDT, CFC, CCTT, CODN
Nov 02 - 03, 2019 | CME 15.00 | USD $495 | Beaverton, Oregon
CF3 - Advanced Cranio Facial - Instructed by Mark Strickland, PT, OCS, MTC, Cert MDT, CFC, CCTT, CODN is organized by University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) and will be held from Nov 02 - 03, 2019 at Beaverton, Oregon, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Physical Therapists. Hours: 15 Hours, 1.5 CEUs Prerequisite: CF2 - Intermediate Cranio Facial Description: The focus of this seminar is on craniovertebral relationships; the interplay between the cervical spine and the TMJ; with emphasis on the normal centric relation. Pathologies related to disturbances of the craniovertebral relationship, such as facial asymmetry and TMJ disc displacement, will be discussed and the need to treat this area with a three-dimensional approach will be emphasized. Lab sessions will focus on treatment of the craniovertebral junction. Furthermore, participants will have a chance to practice the rollback technique for stabilization of the intra-articular disc. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this seminar the attendee should be able to: • Correlate head and neck facial pain with joint and muscle dysfunctions for both craniomandibular and craniovertebral areas • Evaluate and treat craniovertebral joints for cranio-facial pain patients • Evaluate and treat combined disc pathologies in the three planes of space • Recognize the symptoms and signs of lateral and medial disc condyle subluxation • Integrate the treatment and communication with the dental team • Discuss treatment approaches to disc pathologies and myoaponeurotic dysfunctions
