Leuven - Waves
09:00 - 17:00


Temporomandibular disorders are the most common cause for orofacial pain, and refer to several highly common clinical disorders that involve the masticatory muscles, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and the adjacent structures. Although the majority of patients with TMDs respond very well to manual and exercise therapies, some patients suffer chronic and persistent disorders that require a very skilled and accurate management.
During this one-day practical workshop it will be all about hands-on and we’ll use a Problem-Based-Learning approach. Expect to learn some extra skills and finetuning through all the practical content that will be presented. For each of the selected complicated case-studies (of real patients) several important and relevant techniques will be demonstrated and practiced under supervision.


After completing to course participant will be able to:

  • Put into practice a relevant clinical reasoning model of management in people with temporomandibular disorders & orofacial pain.
  • Choose and apply a relevant advanced manual therapy techniques for several complicated clinical presentations of temporomandibular disorders & orofacial pain.
  • Suspect and recognize dangerous medical conditions that may mimic temporomandibular disorders & orofacial pain.
