Twisted Tongues and Other Muscles

Course Description
Naming muscles is what we all did to pass "the test". It is true understanding of what the muscles actually do in functional patterns that sets apart a therapist from an implementor. This presentation will be a good review and give examples of what to look for in the clinical patient.

  1. Identify 4 paired instrinsic lingual muscles and their functions
