Incidence of temporomandibular joint symptoms following whiplash injury.
Recently there has been considerable litigation involving the development of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain and dysfunction following cervical musculoskeletal injury (whiplash).
The purpose of this investigation was to interview, examine, and follow up patients with a diagnosis of whiplash injury to determine the incidence of associated temporomandibular disorders.
Patients were divided into two categories:
Those with and those without radiologic evidence of cervical skeletal injury.
In the 63 patients with radiographic evidence of cervical skeletal injury (group 1), none had clicking at the time of initial examination.
