Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) is a collective term used to describe a group of musculoskeletal conditions occuring in the temporomandibular region. As with other musculosketal pain conditions, most patients with acute TMD pain show fast recovery regardless of treatment. However, in patients with long lasting complaints, treatment becomes difficult to achieve. Patients with chronic pain not only experience impaired physical function, but also mental and emotional difficulties and a diminished quality of life. Annemiek Rollman’s PhD dissertation aims to improve the understanding of the role of biopsychosocial factors in the development of TMD-pain complaints and care seeking behaviour.
