Temperomandibular Joint - Myofascial Pain Syndrome Diagnosis and Treatment

with Dr Kevin May


Acupuncture, chiropractic and dentistry are modalities that can be used alone or in combination to diagnose and treat a problem. This lecture considers the use of these in the diagnosis and treatment of Equine Temporomandibular Joint – Myofascial Pain Syndrome (TMJ-MPS).  The primary involvement of acupuncture in this syndrome is the diagnostic palpation of the head and poll area. Diagnostic palpation can aid in the identification of any contributing factors and treatment. Detailed information and descriptions of diagnostic approach is provided as well as appropriate treatment regimes.
