Abstract:
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), a condition that primarily affects women may produce chronic pain that interferes with functional activities. The peak incidence occurs in women 25 to 34 years old. The goal of being pain free may not be realistic. The conflict created by a search for a cure may create difficulties for patients, their family, and their health care provider(s). The purpose of this study is to determine how women with TMD cope with their disease, determine their functional status, and to determine if any correlation exists between coping and functional status. A descriptive correlational study is being conducted to assess the coping strategies and functional status of women with temporomandibular joint disorder. Women, 20 to 80 years old, who had temporomandibular joint disorder and were seen in a facial pain clinic formed the sample (N=92). The increased incidence of temporomandibular joint disorder in women, the recurring nature of pain experienced, and a general lack of disability due to pain were factors that influenced sample selection. The specific aims of the study were: 1) To determine the extent to which women with temporomandibular joint disorder use confrontive coping, distancing, self-control, seek social support, accept responsibility, escape-avoidance, planful problems solving, and positive reappraisal to cope with their chronic pain 2) To determine the extent to which pain affects the subject's ability to participate in household, social and community, childcare, care of dependent family members, personal care, work, and school/continuing educational activities and 3) To determine the association between coping processes used and the functional status in women with temporomandibular joint disorder. The study design is descriptive correlational. Data collection is not currently complete (N=60). Preliminary data analysis is currently being done. Data analysis will involve descriptive statistics to describe the sample. Correlational statistics will be used to determine the association between study variables.
