Several chronic pain conditions, including TMD, are more prevalent in women. Many studies of experimental pain sensitivity have shown women to be more pain sensitive than men. Multiple biological and psychological factors are likely be responsible for this sex difference. Dr. Greenspan will present research findings that reveal sex differences in neural processing related to pain, and their potential role in chronic orofacial pain epidemiology.
