Course Description

This course provides a unique opportunity for collaborative teaching about temporomandibular disorders for physical therapists. TMD’s are often complex due to their chronicity and co-morbidities; therefore, the physical therapist must have a good foundation in anatomy and pain mechanisms, diagnostic classifications, patient evaluation and diagnostically driven goal oriented management. The course is designed to discuss these topics in a practical and relevant way. It also reinforces the need for physical therapists and dentists to collaborate in the care of these patients for optimal results. Drs. Rudd and McNeill have taught together nationally and internationally for over 25 years.
