Special Issue Information
Orofacial pain, headaches and temporomandibular disorders are complex to manage, and it is a crucial multidisciplinary approach. Regarding the multidisciplinary approach, we should attend to the various dimensions, such as the sensory–motor, cognitive, affective-motivational, and emotional dimensions. Therefore, the management of those dimensions needs to span and include various health professionals (ideally in communication) to be able to provide patients with the best therapeutic interventions in terms of rehabilitation/physiotherapy, pharmacological treatment, psychotherapy, surgery, and others.
In this Special Issue, different but related topics surrounding orofacial pain, headaches and temporomandibular disorders are welcome. Special interest will be given to research regarding assessment, diagnosis, physiopathology and psychological factors of temporomandibular joint pain, myofascial orofacial pain, cranial nerves neuralgia or neuropathic pain (trigeminal, glossopharyngeal and occipital), migraines, tension-type headaches, other headaches and orofacial pain located at the oral structures.
Furthermore, the focus will be on conservative management, non-invasive interventions such as medication, rehabilitation/physiotherapy, manual therapy, exercise, therapeutic education, psychological interventions and other conservative treatments.
Finally, this Special Issue intends to provide the most relevant information on the current state of research approaches that provide the best results for diagnosis and therapeutic interventions for patients with orofacial pain, headaches and TMD, presenting papers either describing original research or reviewing the scientific literature (preferably systematic reviews and original articles).
