The jaw-closing muscles generally are more resistant to fatigue than the limb muscles. The specific process of fatigue referred to here is localized fatigue proximal to the neuromuscular junction. In view of this resistance to fatigue and the notion that muscle fatigue leads to the muscle pain experienced in craniomandibular disorders, it was considered that this process required further investigation.
