Three groups will receive different fototerapia of light sources, and group 1 will not receive dose: Group A (0, 65Joules), Group B (1.30 Joules) and Group C (1.95 Joules) .
Portable Cluster 9 PainAway ® diodes manufactured by Multi Radiance Medical ® (Solon, OH-USA), being 1 905 nm diode (1 mW average power 10 W of peak power, spot of 0.44 cm2), 875 nm diodes 4 (17.5 mW average power for each diode, spot of 1 cm2) and 670 nm diodes 4 (15 mW average power for each diode1 spot, cm2), frequency of 1000 Hz, irradiation time of 300 seconds, energy delivered from 39.3 Joules.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo phototherapy
The volunteers will be subjected to the same Groups intervention Phototherapy . The but researcher will receive placebo pen. It is the caveat that, after completed the voluntary participation, will be held with the active pen treatment.
Radiation: Placebo phototherapy
The volunteers will be subjected to the same Groups ' intervention and placebo pen Phototherapy.
- Pain intensity. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Will be used a algometry D-200 of Instrutherm ®, which is a semi quantitative method to measure the intensity of the pain by the pressure, find painful spots, in addition to quantify changes the various pain syndromes.
- Electromyographic activity [ Time Frame: 1 year ]The electrical powers of masticatory muscles will be verified in this study through surface electromyography, specifically the masseter and temporal muscles, serving as a useful tool to quantify muscle activity during Mastication and thus identify its functional changes.
- Analysis of superficial cutaneous temperature [ Time Frame: 1 year ]A thermal camera model FLIR T450 ® SC Systems (Stockholm, Sweden) is used to measure the surface skin temperature of the masseter and temporal muscles to verify the effect of phototherapy in them.
