It is important to recognize and understand various cervical and orofacial pain syndromes, as the first health practitioner visited by patients for head and neck pain is often the chiropractor. Therefore, having knowledge in the evaluation of orofacial pain syndromes is beneficial. Unfortunately, these conditions may be rather complex and this often leads to misdiagnosis and/or incomplete diagnosis, resulting in misdirected and/or incomplete treatment, despite well-intentioned efforts.
In this 12 hour class, the evaluation of various neuropathic, neurovascular, and somatic pains are discussed. Special focus will be on temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), headaches and concussion syndromes.
