The Effects of End-Tidal Carbon Dioxide Feedback on Thermal Pain Thresholds in Patients with Orofacial Pain Disorders


Grants and Contracts Details


The goal of this study will be to evaluate the efficacy of diaphragmatic breathing training as a treatment modality to reduce pain sensitivity using a sample of 60 TMD patients. We believe that diaphragmatic breathing training will provoke a significant reduction in pain sensitivity in a TMD patient population as compared to TMD patients who do not receive such training. We intend to determine the validity of this therapeutic approach using a standardized breathing training method (Fried, 1987,1993).
