Course Description

Migraine, TMJ Disorder, & Cervical Tension

Migraines can strike without warning, leaving the victim debilitated, and suffering from a “migraine hangover” that may last several days. Many patients, also have TMJ Dysfunction and cervical tension, two of the many contributing factors to the severity and duration of the headache. In this advanced workshop, you will learn the intimate dynamic between these disorders, and how to lessen the severity, impact and frequency of migraines by treating these underlying contributors.

Atlanto-occipital decompression, cranial bone suture treatment modalities, as well as cervical alignment techniques, take the pressure off the sensitive Craniosacral system and meninges. Muscular & osseous techniques in both the intra/extra oral regions, as well as the throat also help facilitate “opening” within the cranium. Galea Aponeurotica or “Scalp” fascial release and ear unwinding, round out the beneficial modalities used to help the patient feel less cranial & TMJ tension overall.

Whiplash & Cervical Disc Herniations

This workshop is an in depth look at disorders that develop as a result of whiplash injuires, particularly as they apply to cervical hyperlordosis or Kyphosis, two very different but common presentations post injury. Therapists will review the muscles, bones, nerve plexi, and other connective tissue structures involved in the anterior, lateral, and posterior cervical spine. How to do a thorough assessment, and to then translate that information into an effective treatment plan for the patient is emphasized. Advanced treatment techniques for cervical disc herniation are demonstrated, with plenty of time to practice and gain mastery of this delicate region.
