This study aims to evaluate the effect of LED therapy on NSCLBP. Methods and analysis: We conducted a prospective, double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial of 148 patients with NSCLBP. The patients were randomly assigned to 2 groups: intervention group, where patients received LED photobiomodulation therapy 3 times a week for 2 weeks, and the sham group, where patients had sham therapy 3 times a week for 2 weeks. Primary outcome measures included the visual analog scale for pain, lumbar active range of motion assessments, and chair-rising times. Secondary outcome measures included a multidimensional fatigue inv...

Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) affect 5% to 12% of the population and lead to disability and pain. It has been suggested that architectural changes occur in the masseter muscle (MM) in TMDs. However, studies on normal in vivo MM architecture are scarce. Previously, our laboratory examined MM architectural changes during maximum intercuspation.

This study was carried out to compare the therapeutic efficacy of extracorporeal shock wave (ESW) and ultrashort wave (UW) for temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 80 patients with myofascial pain and TMD were enrolled in this study. The subjects were randomized to receive ESW or UW treatments. Patients in the ESW group received 1 ESW treatment for 4 weeks and patients in the US group were given US treatment once a day for 5 days per week for 4 weeks. The pain was measured using visual analog scale (VAS) and mouth opening was determined as pain-free maximum mouth opening (MMO) before and ...

The objective of present study is to evaluate and compare the efficacy of intra-articular platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and arthrocentesis in management of TMDs.Materials and MethodsTwenty-four patients with complaint of reduced mouth opening, joint noise, pain, jaw deviation, not responding to medicinal treatment and coming under group II/III of RDC/TMD were included. Patients were randomly and equally divided in two groups. In group A, arthrocentesis was performed, whereas group B patients underwent intra-articular injections of PRP. Patients were clinically evaluated preoperatively to 12  months postoperatively.Result...

Abstract Mechanical overloading of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) promotes both the initiation and progression of TMJ osteoarthritis (OA). New preclinical animal models are needed for the evaluation of the molecular basis of cellular load transmission. This would allow a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of TMJ-OA pain and disability, and help identify new therapeutics for its early diagnosis and management. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of mechanical loading in the progression of TMJ-OA in surgical instability arising from unilateral partial discectomy (UPD) in a murine mod...

; K Abstract Background: Pain in the temporomandibular region is a main complaint causing disability and distress among temporomandibular disorders sufferers. Objectives: The aim of the study was, over an 11-year follow-up on Finnish adult population, to investigate the prevalence of clinically assessed pain-related temporomandibular disorder (TMD) signs, i.e. temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and masticatory muscles (MM) pain on palpation, and their association with sociodemographic background and denture status. Methods: The data were based on the nationally representative Finnish Health 2000 and Health 2011 Surveys...
