Cranio Facial Therapy Academy 1
November 2 – 5 2023
CRAFTA® delivers a unique and effective treatment and management of patients with temporomandibular and craniofacial dysfunctions and pain. The CRAFTA® courses were developed to meet the interests of physical therapists, speech pathologists, and dentists. These courses will be taught by Michiel Trouw – a Master manual therapist and an extended-scope physiotherapist. A graduate of the University of Utrecht (Netherlands), Michiel has taught the CRAFTA® concept since 2011.
The course focuses on assessing and managing the craniomandibular-facial region and its functional relations. Students will learn about pain mechanisms of the relevant craniomandibular structures, the temporomandibular joint function (TMJ) function, and the neurophysiological, biomechanical, and functional relationships with the cervical spine.
“This course was fantastic and well above my expectations. The instructor, Michiel Trouw, provided all the theory and research behind the CRAFTA techniques followed by teacher demonstrations and hands-on labs. The online modules are great for reference and review of information and techniques learned in class. I am so excited to have new ways to address a patient population that I could often help only temporary, but they would rebound. Now I have the tools to address the source of pain. Thank you Michiel and thank you Myopain Seminars for bringing CRAFTA to the US!”
