Lecture Synopsis:

Dr Lilima Tiwari - Tales of Oral Burning

Intra oral burning is a commonly presenting oral symptom and often a source of significant frustration for patients. The symptom itself is associated with a variety of underlying conditions, and it is essential for clinicians to have a sound understanding of the factors that may be responsible for oral burning. This lecture will discuss cases demonstrating the varying presentations of intra oral burning and aim to provide clinicians a pragmatic approach in clarifying this issue.

Leigh Ray - TMJ Assessment & Treatment: Jaw Physiotherapy

This lecture looks at what majority of TMJ pain clients have in common in terms of biochemistry and what aspects can be improved significantly. Physical mechanics – physiotherapy, options for better health, biochemistry referral, psychology of pain/childhood triggers, sense of why we are here on the planet/self-empowerment, basic introduction to counselling – self care – what is self love – ‘joy list/resources’ and life-work discussions. The lecture will also feature an interactive component where there will be a TMJ assessment and dry needling demonstration.
