Jaw Pain and Botox. TMJ Disorder Myofacial Pain and Botox and it’s (?in-)Effectiveness?
Often clients ask me about how effective it may be for them to have the botox injection for their jaw pain or jaw tightness sensation.
I have always asked them to try not to go ahead as it does not solve the “why” of the Jaw pain or Jaw tightness sensation.
As the results of the researches are mixed over the last 30 years, it is clearly not the way to solve the “Cause” of the problem.
