Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: PT program
manual myofascial release for craniomandibular system for 30~40 minutes chin-in exercise within 10 minutes and as home exercise self-care education twice per week for 8 weeks
Other: PT program
manual myofascial release for craniomandibular system for 30~40 minutes chin-in exercise within 10 minutes and as home exercise self-care education twice per week for 8 weeks
Active Comparator: Splint group
custom-made oral appliance: wear every night for 8 weeks, occasional drop is allowed self-care education
Device: oral appliance
custom-made oral appliance: wear every night for 8 weeks, occasional drop is allowed self-care education

Detailed Description:

The details of each intervention are listed as following:

  • physical therapy program group (PT): manual myofascial release over craniomandibular system, chin-in exercise and self-care education
  • oral appliance group (splint): custom-made stabilization splint and self-care education
