The purpose

Introduction: Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) is characterized for being a complex and multifactorial pathology, where functional and pathological changes commit temporomandibuar articulation, masticatory muscles, and other associated structures. In the light of the whole complexity of the DTM noted the necessity of interdisciplinary treatment, including physical therapy with the use of manual features, has been excelling. Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of mandibular nonspecific mobilization on the mandibular movement and lateralidades, through the three-dimensional kinematics in subjects with diagnosis of TMD, as well as analyze the behavior of pain, quality of life and functionality of individuals with DTM pre, immediately after and 30 days of 12 treatment sessions. Method: This is a clinical trial randomised, placebo-controlled and blind, designed to study the effects of Mandibular Nonspecific Mobilization x Placebo (detuned ultrasound). Individuals will be randomised controlled trials and allocated into two groups: Group A (intervention) and Group B (placebo) and evaluated by the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular joint Disorders (RDC/TMD) for diagnosis of TMD, numeric scale of Pain (END), quality of life questionnaire (WHOQOL-BREF), Patient specific Functional Scale and Kinematic Analysis Tridiemsnional. Statistical Analysis: Mandibular movement will be the primary outcome and will be quantified by three-dimensional kinematic analysis. The pain, Functionality and quality of life will be the secondary outcomes. Initially the distribution of data will be checked by the Shapiro-Wilk test. In comparisons between the groups, if the data present normal distribution will be used a repeated measures ANOVA to two factors, being these: Group (intervention and placebo) and treatment (pre and post-intervention), with Bonferrone correction. If the data do not show normal distribution, a logarithmic function is used to correct striping. As level of significance will be used p < 0.05.
