About The Event
Facilitated by Scott Raymond LMT, this introductory hands-on class, we will review the anatomy and bio-mechanics involved in TMJ dysfunction along with common complaints and how to address the symptoms of TMJ dysfunction while staying within your scope of practice. Attendees will learn how to integrate neuromuscular, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy into their regular style of practice.
