Introduction

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is associated with a number of important functions, including eating, speaking and breathing. Thus, dysfunction of this joint can not only cause orofacial pain, but also affect these functions. Having an understanding of the physiology and biomechanics of this joint is, therefore, essential for any physiotherapist who wants to work with TMJ patients.

Aims

The aim of this course is to introduce the physiology and key movements of the TMJ.
