Abstract [sv]

Functional jaw movements are the result of activation of jaw as well as neck muscles, leading to simultaneous movements in the temporomandibular, atlanto-occipital and cervical spine joints. This study tested the hypothesis of a functional integration between the human jaw and neck motor systems in rhythmic jaw activities in healthy and in individuals with pain and dysfunction in the jaw and neck region following neck trauma. Whiplash Associated Disorders (WAD). Compared with healthy subjects, the WAD groups showed smaller amplitudes and disturbed coordination of head and mandibular movements, and reduced endurance during chewing. The results suggest that optimal jaw function requires free unrestricted head-neck movements and support the hypothesis of a close functional relationship between the jaw and the neck regions in rhythmic jaw activities.
