Pain characteristics of temporomandibular disorder: a pilot study in patients with cervical spine dysfunction
Pedroni, Cristiane Rodrigues;Oliveira, Anamaria Siriani de;Bérzin, Fausto;
Journal of Applied Oral Science , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S1678-77572006000500016
Abstract: objective: the purpose of the present pilot study was to describe pain complaints of tmd patients and cervical spine dysfunction. methods: fourteen women with myogenous tmd, cervical motion limitation and rotation of at least one of the three first cervical vertebrae evidenced by radiographic examination participated in this study. the multidimensional pain evaluation was accomplished by a brazilian version of the mcgill pain questionnaire. results: the results showed that the most painful body site mentioned was cervical spine, followed by scapular region and temporomandibular joint. more than half of the volunteers reported temporal pain pattern as rhythmic, periodic and, or still, intermittent. the majority of the patients classified the pain intensity assessed at the moment of the evaluation as mild to discomforting. absolute agreement was not observed among volunteers regarding word dimensions used to describe their pain, although a great number of patients chose the descriptor related to tension as the better expression to describe their painful complaint. conclusion: pain characteristics of tmd patients with cervical spine dysfunction showed cervical spine as a common painful region reported and words related to affective and emotional dimensions of pain perception can be used by these patients to qualify their pain complain.

Abstract: the knowledge of the electromyographic activity produced during shoulder exercises can help in determining its clinical applicability. the purpose of this study was to assess the influence of the load direction and the extremity condition on the electrical activity of the shoulder girdle and upper limb muscles during exercises with fixed distal extremity and external axial load (feal) and mobile extremity with rotational external load (merl). twenty 23.2 ± 0.9 years old female sedentary volunteers were selected. the triceps brachii, biceps brachii, major pectoral, trapezium and deltoid muscles were assessed. the surface electromyography was recorded during two feal and two merl exercises using 100% of the previously established maximal resistance. the rms values normalized by the maximal voluntary contraction were compared by a mixed effect model with 5% significance level. in these experimental conditions, the results found in the present study have shown that similar exercises classified by extremity condition and load direction applied on the upper limbs promote similar levels of the electromyographic activity only in part of the assessed muscles. these findings discuss the ability of the classification system used in this study to predict the type of the muscular response expected during different tasks with the same classification.

Journal of Applied Oral Science , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S1678-77572003000200010
Abstract: a study on the impact of pain in patients with temporomandibular joint disorder (tmd) was carried out. twenty two patients (20 women, two men, 28 years of age on average) with tmd who looked for specialized physiotherapy care were submitted to a brazilian version of mcgill pain questionnaire (br-mpq), which includes questions about life quality, as follows: 1) social loss; 2) daily life activities; 3) third party?s perception; 4) pain tolerance; 5) sensation of being sick; 6) sensation of being useless; 7) life satisfaction. the results showed that pain related to the tmd significantly affected work activities (59.09%), school activities (59.09%), sleeping (68.18%) and appetite/feeding (63.64%). the authors conclude that pain from tmd has a negative impact on the patients? life quality and that, although unspecific, the questionnaire used allowed for an adequate evaluation of the impact.

Abstract: temporomandibular disorders (tmd) are characterized by several signs and symptoms, such as pain and changes in the electrical activity of masticatory muscles. considering that transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (tens) is a resource indicated to promote analgesia, the objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of tens on pain and electromyographic (emg) activity of the jaw elevator muscles in tmd patients. this study evaluated 35 female volunteers: 19 tmd patients (mean age = 23.04 ± 3.5) and 16 normal subjects (mean age = 23.3 ± 3.0). transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (conventional mode, 150 hz) was applied once to each group for 45 minutes. surface electromyography (gain of 100 times and 1 khz sampling frequency) and the visual analogue scale (vas) were applied before and immediately after tens application. both vas data and root mean square (rms) values were analyzed using student's t-test. the tmd group, compared to the control group, showed higher emg activity of the jaw elevator muscles at rest. no difference was observed between the groups regarding maximum voluntary clenching (mvc). in tmd patients, tens reduced both pain and emg activity of the anterior portion of the temporal muscle, increasing the activity of the masseter muscles during mvc. it is possible to conclude that a single tens application is effective in pain reduction. however, it does not act homogeneously on the features of the electric activity of the muscles evaluated.

Abstract: the objective of this study was to compare the electromyography activity of scapular and arm muscles in the wall-press 90°, wall-press 45°, bench-press and push-up exercises, accomplished with the distal extremity of the segment on a stable surface and in maximum isometric effort. twenty male sedentary (23±7 years), and without trauma history or diseases in the upper extremity volunteers participated in this research. the electric activity of the long head of the muscle biceps brachii, the anterior portion of the deltoid muscle, the clavicular portion of the pectoralis major and the serratus anterior muscle was registered by electromyography surface. the anova and tukey post hoc were used to determine differences between the rms values of each muscle and in each exercise, normalized by the maximal voluntary isometric contractions. the results of the present study demonstrated that the biceps brachii muscle presented the smallest electromyographic activity in comparison to the other muscles in all exercises, while the anterior portion of the deltoid and the serratus anterior muscles presented larger electromyography activity in relation to the other muscles in the bench-press and push-up exercises. these findings demonstrate that there was not similarity in the electromyography activity of the evaluated muscles during the exercises; however, there was a muscular coactivation, since the exercises activated all muscles, even if at different levels. the studied exercises are not recommended for activation of the biceps brachii muscle; however, the bench-press and push-up exercises are recommended to activate the anterior portion of deltoid and serratus anterior muscles. moreover, the wall-press 90° and the wall-press 45° are recommended for activation of the upper trapezius muscle.

Abstract: several instruments for assessing temporomandibular disorders (tmd) are available in literature, such as indices, questionnaires, protocols, scales, and diagnostic criteria. the purpose of this study, divided into two parts, was to characterise main tools available for tmd evaluation, so as to offer both researchers and clinicians guiding information on instrument selection according to their clinical or research needs. two clinical indices and three (anamnestic and functional) questionnaires were presented in part i; and, here in part ii, one functional questionnaire and two sets of diagnostic criteria. indices consist of organized forms for assigning scores to signs and symptoms thus obtaining severity degrees. questionnaires are better employed for epidemiological purposes. functional questionnaires are better used to assess impact of tmd on daily life activities. there are few specific sets of systematised diagnostic criteria available for diagnosing tmd. the research diagnostic criteria for temporomandibular disorders (rdc/tmd) has been partially translated into portuguese and had its accuracy and most psychometric properties validated, hence seems the best choice for assessing tmd.

Abstract: aim: the purpose of this study was to assess in a sample of female community cases the relationship between the increase of percentage of cervical signs and symptoms and the severity of temporomandibular disorders (tmd) and vice-versa. material and methods: one hundred women (aged 18-26 years) clinically diagnosed with tmd signs and symptoms and cervical spine disorders were randomly selected from a sample of college students. results: 43% of the volunteers demonstrated the same severity for tmd and cervical spine disorders (csd). the increase in tmd signs and symptoms was accompanied by increase in csd severity, except for pain during palpation of posterior temporal muscle, more frequently observed in the severe csd group. however, increase in pain during cervical extension, sounds during cervical lateral flexion, and tenderness to palpation of upper fibers of trapezius and suboccipital muscles were observed in association with the progression of tmd severity. conclusion: the increase in cervical symptomatology seems to accompany tmd severity; nonetheless, the inverse was not verified. such results suggest that cervical spine signs and symptoms could be better recognized as perpetuating rather than predisposing factors for tmd.
