Finally, there is a practical training program designed for individuals aiming to enhance their proficiency in both intra and extra-oral injection techniques crucial for managing pain in patients. Participants will also gain insights into the application of Botox as an effective supplementary therapy.
The course encompasses a comprehensive study of head and neck anatomy, providing detailed guidance on the appropriate timing and locations for injections. Every student will have the chance to witness these techniques through demonstrations and then practice the injections under the close supervision of experienced faculty members.
This will be a day and a half long and will take place Friday, March 1 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, March 2 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Atlanta, Georgia.
Throughout the course, there are many injections that we will cover. Some of the injections that we will discuss during this course will include:
- Advanced trigger point injections for myofascial problems.
- TMJ injections for unlocking, prolotherapy and diagnostic purposes.
- Greater occipital injections for occipital neuralgia.
- Nerve blocks for the treatment of myofascial pain, facial neuralgias and headaches.
- Temporalis tendon injections.
A look at Botox
The second part of the course will address the inclusion of Botulinum Toxin (Botox) as an additional therapy to treat patients with chronic pain. Although we realize that Botox shouldn’t be used as an initial stand-alone treatment, it is a great adjunct therapy to the orthotic therapy that many of us use daily.
Techniques will include the correct muscle sites, depths of injections, proper dilutions and how to avoid, treat and manage possible side effects. The inclusion of Botox therapy will enable the practitioner to treat muscle problems, migraine headaches and bruxism problems that current modalities may miss.
Additionally, safety and risk factors, along with proper evaluation of the patients will be thoroughly discussed to achieve the best therapeutic and cosmetic effects for your patient. Every state is different and you are responsible for making sure that you abide by your state laws.
