Manual Therapy for Treatment of the Skull – Face and Jaw

Description: This class will present different paradigms for treatment of the skull and related structures, specifically the face and jaw. The arthrokinematics of cranial motion will be discussed, and methods to release observed restrictions will be taught. In addition to discussing the cranial motion of the face and jaw, we will explore the relationship of these motions with proper function of the primary senses. Knowledge of the arthrokinematics of the sphenobasilar joint in the cranial base is helpful, but not essential.
