Fascia- and Membrantechniques - Function and Dysfunction of the Temporomandibular Joint

New ways for the treatment of the craniomandibular junctions

This course is about the various manifestations of temporomandibular dysfunction. We will study the anatomical foundations of the tensional patterns that act from the shoulder, the neck and the cranium onto the temporomandibular joint. After that we will have a look at the transmission of compressional forces between the neurocranium and the viscerocranium. And  we will arrive at the analysis of the detailed structure inside the joint capsule of the temporomandibular joint, especially the three parts of the discus, the two heads of the lateral pterygoid muscle and the joint capsule itself.

Emphasis will be on manual diagnostics and manual treatment of:

  • Midline guidance and laterotrusion while moving the mandible
  • Lack of anterotrusion
  • Dysfunctional distribution of forces on single teeth
  • Prevention and postsurgical care for implants
  • Joint clicking
  • Arthrotic changes inside the TMJ
  • The TMJ under stress – structural and psychoemotional aspects of bruxism

The course is mainly about practice. Each examination and treatment step will be at first explained in anatomical context and then demonstrated in practice.
