DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF THE NECK AND JAW

Disorders of the neck come with a wide array of etiologies and symptoms, many of which seem to have little to do with the neck itself. While osteoporosis of the cervical spine is common, hormonal imbalances and structural misalignment of the lower limb can also contribute to neck disorders and common symptoms such as stiffness, numbness of the arm, shoulder pain and headache. Though specific jaw problems are less likely to come up as the primary reason a patient makes an appointment, TMJ, jaw tightness, and misalignment are often issues accompanying disorders of the neck and their many manifestations. The seven cervical vertebrae, as well as the sternocleidomastoid, scalenes, and the channels that run through the neck are powerful areas for diagnosis and treatment of a spectrum of neck-related complaints.

In this intimate workshop, Kiiko Matsumoto will discuss her clinical findings for diagnosis and treatment of the neck and jaw region, using both local and distal points. She will cover the etiology and pathology of these areas, and when it is appropriate to suspect neck or jaw involvement when they are not specifically mentioned by the patient. Learn techniques for palpation of the cervical vertebrae and other important diagnostic regions of the neck, and observe hands-on demonstration for effective distal treatments to relieve pain, as well as how to safely and effectively treat the acupuncture points located in the SCM and scalene region of the neck itself.
