Hosted by: Colorado PT-PAC- All proceeds from this event will go to the PT-PAC to help influence legislative issues affecting PTs in Colorado.

Description: Temporomandibular disorders affect as many as 10% of the US population at any given time and are the second most common reason people seek care from their dentist. However, the cause of TMD is rarely dental and very often mechanical in nature. Unfortunately, these patients rarely receive a referral to physical therapy and few therapists have more than minimal training to manage these conditions. That changes now! This course will provide the physical therapist with an understanding of the epidemiology and etiology of TMD, pertinent anatomy & biomechanics, regional interdependence of craniovertebral spine & TMJ, detailed physical examination, and will teach manual therapy, exercise therapy, and pain neuroscience education interventions for the patient with TMD.

This course meets Colorado standards for 8 hours of Category I Professional Development Activity.

Target audience: Physical Therapists, 3rd year PT students, Dentists, and dental students 

Cost: APTA CO Members:$200; APTA CO Non-Members: $250; Students $75
