Certification in Temporomandibular Management (Cert. TMM)

$1,500.00

The Nxt Gen Institute of Physical Therapy has teamed up with the Eclectic Approach to TMD to present a modern manual therapy certification focusing on the evaluation and treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. There is a lack of knowledge in the screening and treatment of this condition which may be affecting many of your upper quarter patients, especially those with concurrent headaches and/or cervical dysfunction. The Eclectic Approach uses movement screening via a modified Movement Screen as well as a Repeated Motions Exam to help classify the patient and find relevant movement and motor control issues. A strong emphasis on modern Pain Science Education and home exercises is used to make the patient independent of passive care. Manual therapy uses The EDGE Tool for Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation or IASTM, as well as joint mobilization for the upper cervical spine and TMJ, function mobilization, and thrust manipulation of the cervical and upper thoracic regions.

Note: The next onsite course will take place in Pittsburgh, PA on May 14th-15th, 2016 at The Orthopedic Group 1145 Bower Hill Rd  Suite 301, Pittsburgh, Pa 

Note: If you have already taken Dr. Religioso’s course on MedBridge, you can save $150 off the total cost of this certification. You simply need to email a copy of your completed course certification to jbrence@nxtgenclass.com to receive a promo code.
