O produto Thermo Maxx DTM foi inserido em tese de dissertação de mestrado da Profa. Natália Pinheiro Ribeiro. Termoterapia de superfície: Após a primeira coleta de dados , foi aplicado calor superficial nas regiões dos músculos masseteres e temporais bilaterais, por meio de bolsas de gel.
Objective: Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (TMJD) are ill-defined, painful debilitating disorders. This study was undertaken to identify the spectrum of clinical manifestations based on self-report from affected patients.
The purpose of this study was to clarify whether hot pack therapy can change the blood flow of human masseter muscles. Thirty-two healthy subjects with no history of muscle pain in the masticatory system participated and were divided into two groups. One group underwent proper hot pack therapy (hot pack group) and the other underwent sham hot pack therapy (control group).
Continuous and non-invasive measurements of haemoglobin volumes and oxygen saturation levels (StO2) were determined with a near-infrared spectroscope.
The Changing Field of Temporomandibular Disorders: What Dentists Need to Know.
Diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) have been within the domain of dentistry for many decades. However, the field of TMDs and other causes of orofacial pain is undergoing a radical change, primarily because of an explosion of knowledge about pain management in general. As a result, etiological theories about TMDs are evolving toward a biopsychosocial medical model from the traditional dental framework.
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) have been reported to be a significant public health problem affecting approximately 5% to 12% of the population. It is the second most common musculoskeletal condition (after chronic low back pain) leading to disability and pain. American Academy of Orofascial Pain (AAOP) has attributed the pain to muscular or articular origin. And myogenic pain is more frequently seen in clinical practice. It is persistent in most cases,[4,5] which becomes the primary cause for TMD patients seeking medical assistance.
