An authoritative and comprehensive account of the assessment and conservative management of temporomandibular disorders. Recent emphasis has been on ‘evidence-based practice’ at the expense of the clinical reality which should also take account of clinician expertise and patient preference. A sound research base is not always available. This text addresses the clinical reality of having to make decisions using other sources of knowledge in the absence of a comprehensive scientific rationale. It advocates clinical and evidence-informed practice – an approach which acknowledges the value of clinician experience and expertise as well as research findings.

  • Compiled and edited by two highly regarded and experienced practitioners, researchers and authors who have already published many books and journal articles in the field.
  • With contributions from a mix of 28 internationally-based clinicians and clinician-researchers allowing the text to highlight both current best evidence and clinicians’ expertise and experience. Contributors include talented young clinicians as well as established experts in orthopaedic physiotherapy and world-level expert researchers.

Journal of Orofacial Pain and Headache, September 2019

This textbook describes a variety of treatment alternatives for temporomandibular disorders (TMDs), each with compelling evidence for clinical consideration. The book focuses both on theoretical knowledge of underlying mechanisms and best uses of treatment with manual therapy such as therapeutic exercise, postural training, dry needling and acupuncture in chronic TMD pain patients. The many authors come from different health care professions, have different geographic representation and are excellent experts in their respective fields. The book is divided into four parts and each chapter concludes with a clear summary, followed by a solid reference list.

The first part set the scene by clearly outlining and detailing the epidemiology and classification of painful TMDs. A review of trigeminal nociceptive processing, pathophysiology of temporomandibular pain, referred pain and pain comorbidity provide the clinician with a deep theoretical understanding of basic chronic pain. The available information suggests that risk factors for musculoskeletal pain are complex, acting together and over time, as well as the underlying mechanisms including central sensitization play critical roles in the development of chronic TMD pain.

The fourth part outlines mechanisms behind and evidence for other treatments including dry needling and acupuncture. In addition, the chapter give interesting perspective on pain psychology and a fascinating exploration of neuroscience education and treatment of the brain.

The second part focus on currently tested and accepted methods for assessing and examination the patient. It encompasses both the importance of comprehensive clinical history together with detailed clinical examination of the temporomandibular joint, the jaw muscles and the functional integration to the cervical region. The chapters conclude the importance of conducting a thorough examination of the jaw system to determine clinically relevant finding to better characterize and manage TMD pain.

The third part covers manual therapy for TMD. The chapter provides an evidence-based approach for therapeutic exercises to treat TMD. It also reviews joint mobilization for the temporomandibular joint and the cervical spine. This chapter also includes a detailed description of the role of fascia in relation to jaw and neck functions and the clinical application of manual therapy over trigger points.The fourth part outlines mechanisms behind and evidence for other treatments including dry needling and acupuncture. In addition, the chapter give interesting perspective on pain psychology and a fascinating exploration of neuroscience education and treatment of the brain.

Taken together, this textbook provides an excellent link between theoretical knowledge of mechanisms and manual therapy of TMD and clinical practice using therapeutic exercise, postural training and needling, in chronic TMD pain patients. Furthermore, the number of distinguished authors the editors managed to include in a true multidisciplinary collaboration gives the book credibility. Finally, this fine textbook covering the complex issues in TMD is thoughtfully realized and can be strongly recommended to clinicians.

International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine, March 2018

This book is primarily aimed at student and qualified manual therapists, including osteopaths, with and without experience of working with persons presenting with temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). The authors have written for those with some prior knowledge of neuro-musculoskeletal anatomy, physiology and pathology, particularly of the head, neck and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). As a qualifiedosteopath,withsomeexperienceofworkingwithpersonswith TMD, I found this book highly informative and easy to ‘dip into’ to retrieve information. It makes for a good reference book, but also an excellent study companion for a practitioner, or student, keen to develop expertise in this, evidently, prevalent musculoskeletal condition. The book has 32 contributing authors and is divided into 4 parts. Part 1 looks at what defines TMDs, how they are classified, how common they are in the population, what risk factors there are for developing such a problem as well as the pathophysiology and pain neurobiological mechanisms giving rise to clinical signs and symptoms. From a practitioner’s point of view, the book offers extensive insight into the differential diagnosis of orofacial pain and associated headaches in addition to an understanding of the potential dysfunctions and presenting signs and symptoms of TMDs. Part 2 concerns itself with information gathering in the clinical setting. The authors emphasise important considerations for case history taking and include screening questionnaires for temporomandibular disorders and their risk factors. A helpful sample case history questionnaire is provided. Evaluation of TMDs includes acute nociceptive (Axis I) and chronic temporomandibular pain (Axis II) diagnostic criteria. Axis II criteria look beyond the TMD itself to how the symptoms impact upon a person’s daily life assessing cognitive,
psychosocial and behavioural factors. Physical examination protocols are also included, not least for the TMJ and its functional musculature but for anterior cervical structures and the cervical and thoracic spine. An example template for recording clinical findings related to TMJ examination is also included. Part 3 is the largest section of the book and looks at manual therapy treatment approaches for TMDs. Mobilisation and manipulative techniques, myofascial trigger point and myofascial induction approaches are described for TMDs and the cervical spine. Helpful photographs and diagrams are included as are results from a number of systematic reviews providing supporting evidence for the efficacy of self-help exercises used in conjunction with manual therapy in the management of TMDs. There is an excellent section on therapeutic exercise, postural training and motor control to empower and involve persons in their own care. Part 4 looks at dry needling of myofascial trigger points which may be of interest to those osteopaths, and other manual therapists, practicing that approach. A section devoted to acupuncture is also included here which again may be of interest to those osteopaths and manual therapists practicing acupuncture in addition to hands on techniques. Because of a personal interest in the management of persistent pain, I found thelast2 chapterstobe ofparticular interestastheauthorsbegin to explore pain neuroscience education and brain training exercises in persistentandposttraumaticTMD.The finalchapterlooksattheroleof pain psychology in TMDs in addition to the role of the practitioner in promoting person centred care and evidence informed clinical decision making whilst applying the biopsychosocial model of healthcare and values based practice to these conservative approaches to the treatment and management of TMDs.

If you are interested in developing your understanding of temporomandibular dysfunctions and their connection to the upper cervical and cranial region, you could do worse than reading this comprehensive text.

The book marries up beautifully the anatomical drivers, pain generators and treatment options for the various regions. The book is rich in clinical relevant information as it draws on experts from the field of acupuncture, fascia, medicine and physiotherapy demonstrating that we can all learn from each other. Toby Hall’s co authored chapter on clinical classifications of cranial neuropathies slots in as part of the jigsaw, neatly demonstrating the above point of multidisciplinary learning well.The anatomy and pathomechanism of the TMJ is very well explained in this book with many diagrams used to highlight points. Personally, I really like the therapeutic exercise chapter as it linked the TMJ back to the whole body through simple home exercises which really brought a holistic feel to the book. For me, if you are interested in this area of the body, this is a book to read.
