Temporal muscle, jaw pain and acupuncture

The temporal muscle is a broad fan shaped muscle on each side of the head covering much of the temporal bone. It is one of the muscles involved in jaw movement and is the most powerful chewing muscle of the temporomandibular joint. You can see and feel the muscle contracting while the jaw is clenching and unclenching. The muscle is innervated by a branch of trigeminal nerve. This muscle is likely to be involved in jaw pain, teeth pain, facial pain ,migraines and headaches. Dental work and chewing gum can lead to trigger points in the temporal muscle. These trigger points can cause pain in the side of the face in temple region and the pain can radiate to the face, eye brow, jaw, upper teeth, head and neck. Acupuncture can help release the pain.
