Abstract

Physiotherapy has long been used to cure joint and muscle diseases. It has also been used to treat various diseases without inflicting mental trauma or the pain of surgery. This adjunctive therapeutic modality is widely used for patients with orofacial disorders, especially in the prevention or treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, hypomobility, or ankylosis. Physiotherapy has a particular importance in the treatment of TMJ disorders such as myofascial pain and internal derangement. This review article highlights the importance of physiotherapy as an emerging adjuvant therapy in the treatment of TMJ disorders.
