SYNOPSIS:

INTERVENTIONS FOR TMD: PHYSICAL THERAPY, INJECTIONS AND SPLINTS

This course reviews the appropriate pharmacologic, behavioral, splint therapy and physical medicine management procedures for TMD. For example, myofascial pain-based exercises include stretching, mobilization and manipulation methods. Muscle injections (e.g. trigger point anesthetic and botox injections) and joint injections (e.g. sodium hyaluronate, arthrocentesis and corticosteroids) will be discussed. The commonly used occlusal orthotic devices will also be discussed and the common recommended prescriptions for pain and spasm management will be reviewed.
