Myofascial pain alone covers 45.3% of the diagnosis of TMJ. It is defined as palpation sensitivity and regional muscle pain. Clinically muscle pain connects to myofascial trigger points.These trigger points are hypersensitive points located in a tense band of the skeletal muscle, which can be described, causing provoked or spontaneous pain. They are divided into two as active and latent. Those who cause spontaneous pain are active, and those who provoke pain are considered latent.Spasm in the chewing muscles with myofascial pain reduces the patient's pain threshold and quality of life.
Therefore, patients with spasm and TMJ pain in the masticatory muscles should be examined for head and neck muscles, the presence of myofascial trigger points should be determined and the head and neck muscles should be included in physical therapy.
The aim of this study was to determine the presence of myofascial trigger points in patients presenting with pain in the masticatory muscles and TMJ region, and to determine the relationship between the presence of trigger point and the degree of pain.

Other: bimanual palpation
Other: bimanual palpation
- masticatory and cervical muscles examination for determining trigger points [ Time Frame: first day visit ]detecting the trigger point (yes or no), determining the number of trigger points and determining the region on the muscle
- visual analog scale for pain (VAS) [ Time Frame: first day visit ]scale to find pain amount , pain scores from 0 to 10 will be taken from patients and higher scores indicate worse pain,all of patient's mean pain score to be determined.
- prevalence of trigger points in facial pain disorder patients [ Time Frame: 1 year ]to compare pain scores of patients with and without trigger point,the distribution of trigger points on the masticatory and cervical muscles
