The literature suggests that the lateral pterygoïd muscle is not palpable using an oral approach. The authors palpate the lateral pterygoïd muscle during clinical examination and for the treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders. The authors present an MRI demonstration showing how palpation is achieved.
