Course Description

The purpose of this course is not to dazzle you with knowledge of anatomy or to test you according to origins and insertions of muscles; rather it is to impart to you the basic information necessary for a clinician to diagnose and treat the malady of Temporomandibular Dysfunction (Myofascial Pain Dysfunction; TMJ Pathology; Occlusal disharmony; Fibromyalgia, etc.) This course is the introductory module for a discussion of TMJ pathology, and is also a stand alone course for a basic review of anatomic structures of the head and neck.
