About

The aim is to reveal to what extent cervical core exercises affect the results of treatment in patients with Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction caused by Myofascial pain syndrome. Randomization will be carried out by dividing individuals who agree to participate in the study into 3 groups of 20 people.Participants will be divided into three groups, and all three groups will receive treatment in 30-45 minute sessions a day, 2 days a week for 8 weeks.

Full description

The aim is to reveal to what extent cervical core exercises affect the results of treatment in patients with Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction caused by Myofascial pain syndrome. Randomization will be carried out by dividing individuals who agree to participate in the study into 3 groups of 20 people with the "Research Randomizer" program. Randomization, evaluation and treatment of the groups will be done by different researchers. Participants will be divided into three groups, and all three groups will receive treatment in 30-45 minute sessions a day, 2 days a week for 8 weeks. Evaluation will be made at the beginning and at the eight week to see the short-term effects. Rocabado exercises will be given to the first group, Cervical Core exercises will be given to the second group, and Rocabado and Cervical Core exercises will be given together to the third group. After the initial evaluations, all exercises will be taught to the patients in the first week, they will be planned as home exercises in the following weeks, and online follow-up will be done via tele-rehabilitation.

60 participants in 3 patient groups

Rocabado exercises group
Experimental group
Description:
The most commonly known form of exercise for Temporomandibular Disfunction is Rocabado exercises, which use 6 types of exercises 6 times a day.
Treatment:
Other: Rocabado Exercises
Servical Core Exercises Group
Experimental group
Description:
The purpose of core exercises is to support the vertebral column, especially by activating the stabilizing muscles, and to develop and maintain proper cervical posture by increasing kinesthetic awareness. At the beginning of the exercises, the patient is taught to contract the deep stabilizer muscles in a controlled manner, in isolation, without contraction of the superficial muscles. Exercises 2 days a week for 8 weeks, maximum 30 minutes. The session will be actively applied by the patient for a period of time.
Treatment:
Other: Servical Core Exercises
Rocabado Exercises and Servical Core Exercises Group
