Introduction: The aim of this study was to explore the efficiency of massage in the treatment of masseter myalgia compared with
biostimulatory laser.
Materials and methods: The instrument Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders was used to select subjects and
monitor treatment outcome. 54 subjects with masseter myalgia of more than 3 months in duration were invited to participated and 42
cases were available at the end and analyzed. Age range was 16-67 years (median 33, interquartile range 25-53), 36% subjects was

monitored one months after the start of treatment. Age, gender, distress, somatization, catastrophizing, hypervigilance, health
competence and oral parafunctions were also assessed as factors that could influence effectiveness of treatment.
Results: Laser and massage are effective in reducing symptoms of chronic myalgia of the masseter in self-reported limitation of
jaw function and reducing pain intensities (p<0.001). Increase of mouth opening was present in both groups, but mainly significant
in laser group. The differences in the amount of change between groups were not significant. Psychological characteristics and
parafunctions, present before the treatment, age and gender did not have major affect the effectiveness of treatment.
Conclusion: Both treatment modalities are effective in treatment of chronic myalgia in short-term.
