Dr Jaspinder Kaur, Ms. Shivani Rana
Introduction- Temporomandibular joint is a horse shaped bone that articulates with the temporomandibular bone. When TM joint is not working properly, the condition is known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction joint. The TMJ is positioned Right in front of ear canals.Objective- The aim and objective of this study was to compare the effectiveness of Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and Ultrasound in patient with Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction.Methods- 20 subjects with Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction were divided conveniently into two groups: Group A was receiving Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and Group B was receiving Ultrasound. The treatment was continued for 5 days and readings were taken 1st and 5th day.Result- The study showed non-significant improvements in R.O.M following 5 sessions of treatment within both groups. Conclusion- Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and Ultrasound both are effective in Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction.
