    I am curious about dry needling the pterygoid muscles for a patient with a stubborn case of TMJ-related facial pain. Any suggestions or treatment techniques for this? Anything intra-oral?


      This is taught specifically in the advanced course (for both medial pterygoid & lateral (superior & inferior heads).


        Yes as Jonathan has stated. The advanced course covers the specifics of needling the pterygoids. For now, start with needling the trigeminal distribution ( supraorbital, infraorbital, mental, temporalis, masseter) and cervical c1-3. As covered in the foundation course it will help in the majority of cases. With some of those more involved TMD cases the advanced course techniques are definitely useful.
