Abstract

It was reported that the pressure pain threshold (PPT) of masticatory muscle is useful in the diagnosis of muscle disorders. The difference between right and left sides of involved muscles was objectively judged. However, it could not determine the abnormal site because personal sensitivity to pain could not be measured. It was reported that the PPT of the styloid process gave a sign of personal sensitivity to pain. In this study, the styloid process site was added to the original masticatory muscle measurement sites, described in the previous report. The reference interval of each site was determined. Fifty-one volunteers (27 males and 24 females, mean age: 25.5 years) without muscle pain were used in this study.<BR>The results were as follows:<BR>1. The PPTs at all measurement points were different between sexes (p<0.01).<BR>2. A significant difference was obtained in individuals of the PPT but not between the sides.<BR>3. Significant correlation coefficients were obtained between the styloid process and all the other measurement points.<BR>4. The reference range was determined using 95% confidence intervals.
