Brief Summary:
The aim of the study is, to evaluate the whole body posture and plantar pressure distributions in individuals with Temporomandibular Disorder and also in people with healthy temporomandibular joints. A study group aged between 18-35 years, 30 patients, who were diagnosed with Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD) who applied us with jaw pain and 30 healthy people at the same age range as a control group were included in the study. Both groups received global postural assessments by using PostureScreen Mobile® (PSM) program which is using four side photographs and the New York Posture Scale (NYPS). Static pedobarographic measurements were taken.
