Summary
Brief summary
The overall objective of this study is to improve mouth opening in temporomandibular joint mobilization of the neuraxis, and to analyze the additional effects in reducing pain at the level of the masseter, cervical muscles and trigeminal branches and improving the cervical mobility in all three planes of space.

The aim is to check with trigeminal nerve enhancement and nerve trunk there is an increased mobility of the temporomandibular joint and a consequent decrease in pain sensitivity. Using the collapse or slump position for treatment.
