Share Abstract:

Management of craniomandibular disorders. Part 1: A craniocervical dysfunction index


Pages: 83-88
PMID: 8467302

A craniocervical dysfunction index has been developed (based on the Helkimo Dysfunction Index) to comprehensively assess craniocervical dysfunction and to objectively monitor the management of patients who present with these clinical problems. The close functional interrelationship of temporomandibular joints, jaw muscles, and cervical joints and muscles is reviewed, and a mechanism is proposed to explain dysfunctional relationships between these structures. This is the first of three papers stemming from a clinical study that investigated craniomandibular disorders and assessed the effect of routine dental management on craniomandibular and craniocervical dysfunction.
