Manual therapy for the treatment of temporomandibular disorders

Currently, the incidence of temporomandibular dysfunction in Spain is very high. It is estimated that 5% of the population, some 700,000 men and 1,400,000 women, would need rehabilitation treatment, which gives us an idea of the magnitude of the problem. For this reason, the physiotherapist must have the necessary knowledge to integrate into the multidisciplinary team in charge of treating a syndrome as complex as this one.


Establish correct diagnosis and treatment based on the application of manual therapy techniques.

Understand how to choose the type of technique best suited to the treatment in each case.
