An authoritative and comprehensive account of the assessment and conservative management of temporomandibular disorders. Recent emphasis has been on ‘evidence-based practice’ at the expense of the clinical reality which should also take account of clinician expertise and patient preference. A sound research base is not always available. This text addresses the clinical reality of having to make decisions using other sources of knowledge in the absence of a comprehensive scientific rationale. It advocates clinical and evidence-informed practice – an approach which acknowledges the value of clinician experience and expertise as well as research findings.

  • Compiled and edited by two highly regarded and experienced practitioners, researchers and authors who have already published many books and journal articles in the field.
  • With contributions from a mix of 28 internationally-based clinicians and clinician-researchers allowing the text to highlight both current best evidence and clinicians’ expertise and experience. Contributors include talented young clinicians as well as established experts in orthopaedic physiotherapy and world-level expert researchers.
