Orofacial pain is a chronic condition that occurs when soft tissue in the facial region becomes inflamed, causing discomfort. Trigger points refer to stiffness, painful or limited range of motion, and tender muscles or tendons that "twitch" when provoked. If you've ever had a "stiff neck" or a "jaw ache," you have experienced what a trigger point.
