Sports Injury Lab

The Dutch SportsInjuryLab was founded 9 years ago and specialized in scientific research of sports injury susceptibility. The starting point for our research program was to investigate the imbalance between the (mostly hidden) tooth and TMJ (SumDental©) problems on one hand and injury susceptibility and (re)injuries of the musculoskeletal problems on the other hand. These relationships and interactions were presented by us at the 3rd World Conference on Science and Soccer (2012, Ghent, Belgium). For more scientific understanding in this regard, we expect to publish extensively in one of the leading British journals, BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation. We are starting our BTS project: ‘Associations Between the Stomatognathic Adaptive Motor System (SMAS) and Sports (re)Injuries in Elite Athletes’ in January 2015 in collaboration with the Physical Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Faculty, Ghent University Hospital (Belgium). 120 subjects in the test group will be selected from football players and other top athletes (M/F).

It is well known that the dental occlusion has a postural influence and plays a big part in the neurological balance of muscular and postural systems. There appears to exist a relationship within the body between the dental occlusion and injury or re-injury symptoms when a dysfunctional occlusion (malocclusion) creates effects throughout the body. This study examines the correlation between occlusal function and the tendency to an increase in sports injury and re-injury susceptibility. The researchers would expect the tendency for sports re-injuries and increased sports injury susceptibility to be closely related to the dental occlusion and spatial awareness of the entire body. The functional information is collected and measured on the neuromuscular alterations induced by occlusal contact.

The starting point in this study is the stomatognathic motor adaptive syndrome (SMAS) according to Douglas, C.R, et. al. which describes the motor response and the adaptive processes it induces. Malocclusion causes the mandible to move laterally, or more commonly distally, in order to reach an intercuspal position. Condylar displacements are a result of these movements. Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) receptors respond to the capsular mechanical stress and the information reaches the trigeminal sensory nuclei. The modified mandibular position seems to be important and may interfere with catecholaminergic neurotransmission in the basal ganglia. The main motor responses are increased jaw muscle tone, decreased velocity of movements and reduced coordination. So we have to examine:

  • The Impact of occlusion on the musculoskeletal and postural system.
  • The interrelationship between malocclusions and ‘soft tissue’ sports (re)injuries (injury history) 
  • The relationship between malocclusion and sports injury susceptibility.

  • Examination will measure the plantar activity (COF or Centre of Force) by using a pressure platform as well as the dental malocclusion by recording EMG activity of the masseters and temporalis muscles (left and right) via the MC wireless measure system of BTS TMJOINT. This technology involves surface electromyographic analysis to measure the differential influence of the occlusal function using indices validated and published in scientific literature. A special feature of this system is the standardization of the electromyographic signal that is provided by the comparison between two clenching tests. The first test with cotton rolls between the upper and lower back teeth the second test without. This method allows the elimination of problems associated with the wrong positioning of the electrodes, of the different impedance of the patient’s skin and the differences of muscular tropism making it accurate and repeatable.
