Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: temporomandibular disorder group
subjects with TMD and CLBP symptoms undergo balance assessment with Biodex balance system
Device: balance assessment with Biodex balance system
All subjects of three groups will be assessed with the evaluation device( balance system).

Active Comparator: chronic low back pain group
subjects only with LBP symptoms undergo balance assessment with Biodex balance system
Device: balance assessment with Biodex balance system
All subjects of three groups will be assessed with the evaluation device( balance system).

Normal
subjects without temporomandibular disorder and low back pain symptoms undergo balance assessment with Biodex balance system
Device: balance assessment with Biodex balance system
All subjects of three groups will be assessed with the evaluation device( balance system).




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. balance assesment [ Time Frame: only measure the balance performance before the treatment ]
    The subjects from three groups all receive the balance assessment with the Biodex balance system, and compare the difference.
