Join us for a comprehensive training program focusing on intra and extra-oral injection techniques for effective pain management, along with insights into the application of Botox as a supplementary therapy. This practical course is tailored for individuals seeking to enhance their proficiency in these specialized treatments.
The curriculum covers an in-depth study of head and neck anatomy, providing precise guidance on injection timing and locations. Participants will observe technique demonstrations and then practice under the close supervision of experienced faculty members.
The course spans a day and a half, scheduled for 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.
Injection techniques covered:
- Advanced trigger point injections for myofascial problems.
- TMJ injections for unlocking, prolotherapy, and diagnostic purposes.
- Greater occipital injections for occipital neuralgia.
- Nerve blocks for treating myofascial pain, facial neuralgias, and headaches.
- Temporalis tendon injections.
The latter part of the course delves into the integration of Botulinum Toxin (Botox) as an additional therapy for chronic pain patients. While recognizing that Botox isn’t a standalone treatment, it serves as an excellent adjunct therapy to daily orthotic practices.
Techniques covered include identifying correct muscle sites, understanding injection depths, proper dilutions, and managing potential side effects. Incorporating Botox therapy allows practitioners to address muscle problems, migraine headaches, and bruxism issues that may be overlooked by current modalities.
The course also emphasizes safety, risk factors, and thorough patient evaluation to achieve optimal therapeutic and cosmetic effects, all while ensuring compliance with state laws. Remember, every state is different, and it’s your responsibility to adhere to state laws.
