Correcting Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD)

In this course you will learn the clinical anatomy, physiology, and functional considerations of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). You will learn to determine what chiropractic cranial adjusting TM protocols will be the most effective in correcting the patient’s specific TMJ dysfunction. 

Evaluation protocols for the adult and pediatric TMJ will be covered, as well as addressing some standard dental evaluation and treatment protocols to help the practitioner engage in meaningful and co-treatment protocols when necessary. 

This class will give you the tools you will need to help your patients who suffer from TMD and its myriad of complications. 

Skills You Will Learn

✓ Functional anatomy and physiology of the TMJ

✓ Chiropractic/Dental co-treatment models and protocols (basic dental terminology and approaches)

✓ Complete examination of the TMJ to determine the type of dysfunction (adult and pediatric protocols)

✓ Indicators to pinpoint the specific cranial bone involvements and determine proper adjusting sequence

✓ Chiropractic cranial adjusting TM protocols for specific cranial bone corrections to restore normal TMJ mechanics

Feedback from Our Students

Testimonial: Dr. Michael Smallwood

“I took this course in hopes to expand my pediatric knowledge and refine my skill set. I felt this course provided exactly that. Drs. Martin and Nancy are not only brilliant in the field, but their willingness to help and desire for you to learn is immense. It makes the course so much better. The material has a significant impact on your practice immediately. It allowed me to help so many more kids in the office in ways I wasn’t able to before. The material is heavy, but it’s presented in a digestible way as well done through Q & As that help guide you.

Personally, I feel more confident as a doctor and have provided my kids with better care.

Professionally, I feel I provide my patients and community a better facility with more tools at my disposal. Almost immediately after completing the course, my daughter suffered what appeared to be a concussion. Using specific cranial adjusting methods from this course, I was able to confidently help her in ways I wouldn’t have before.

The program and the material should be a part of the school curriculum. It’s so impactful and addresses subluxation and tension in ways I couldn’t without it. Both Doctors are incredibly bright but also very kind and helpful.”

Testimonial: Dr. Susan F. Waletkus, DC

“I highly recommend taking Introduction to Chiropractic Adjusting (CCA). When I saw the opportunity to have a class online with the Drs. Rosen and Watson, I could hardly wait for it to begin. I have always been interested in cranial work and who better to learn from then ‘The Masters’. I have attended live seminars, but I am one who needs repetition and extra time to grasp concepts, so the format of an online class suited my learning style. On Monday, a concept was addressed in a short video that appeared in our email. Thursday, we received a second email which was a ‘Call to Action’. This helped to organize the concepts presented on Monday. I must admit, occasionally Dr. Rosen talks a little faster than I can comprehend so I could slow the presentation to 75%, and watch several times. There were also several doctors call/zoom meetings to have questions answered and brainstorm with colleagues. Upon completion of the course, I am now a member of the Facebook group for questions, interesting cases and continued learning. Thank you Marty and Nancy.”
