Background and Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the neck and temporomandibular joint range of motion and muscle endurance in patients with temporomandibular disorders, referring to the dental school of tehran university of medical science and healthy individuals.

Materials and Methods: A total of 30 healthy men as control and 30 patients aged 20-40 years with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) were selected as patients. Range of motion in flexion and extension of the head and neck and mouth opening was measured and masticatory muscle endurance as well as the neck extensor muscles was measured and averaged values for each patient group were compared with the control group.

Results: Head and neck flexion range of motion and endurance of neck extensor muscles in patients with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) was lower than healthy controls. (P<0.001)

Conclusion: The results of this study showed that disorders of temporomandibular joint can change extensor muscle endurance and range of motion in neck. Pay attention to neck problems can be effective in improving patients with disorders of temporomandibular joint.
