Abstract:

Abstract: The effect of mandibular repositioning on eccentric and concentric quadricep extensor strength as well as on electrical activity of the masseter muscle was examined. Twenty-four women with documented temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome who had been previously fitted with a mandibular orthopedic repositioning appliance (MORA) were randomly assigned to one of three experimental conditions--orthotic, placebo, or control--for a 7-day period. Subjects were pretested without their MORAs and posttested under their respective experimental conditions. A Kin-Corn dynamometer was used to determine mean eccentric and concentric quadricep extensor strength for six maximal contractions at 30o/sec through of 80o and an electromyograph recorded masseter activity. No significant (p <.05) differences an arc muscle in eccentric and concentric quadricep extensor strength or in masseter muscle activity were found among the three groups of subjects. However, a trend (p = .08) toward strength improvement was found in the orthotic group, indicating a longer adaptation time may be needed.

The research investigation was well done. I would have employed pain scales within the measurement phase of the masseter muscles of each of the 24 patients. Also, would have highly recommended not using the built in KIN-COM electromyography unit as there were known flaws with this unit from the manufacturer.

Effect of Temporomandibular Repositioning on Quadricep Extension Strength

by ZIMMER1812 (WorldCat user published 2012-06-21) Fair Permalink

This manuscript is helpful for those wanting to understand more about the MORA and its effect on human performance. I like the design of the research and the outcome of the findings. The researcher used good sound design methods and statistical analysis, however, there is a huge problem with the EMG...

Interesting read and nicely researched. Good research design and awesome discussion on topics of temopormandibular repositioning and its affect on physiological performance. TMD Patients only female and limited study size suggests that they should have included mixed "male/female" subjects and...

Temporomandibular Repositioning

by PFKACTIVE (WorldCat user published 2011-09-04) Very Good Permalink

Work is nicely researched and experimential design is good. Literature review is repeative and indicated a good understanding of both the physiological and anatomical nature of the complex Temporomandibular Joint and it's surrounding structure. Within this dissertation this reseacher also demonstrated an...
