Is there a link between TMJ and lower back pain?

Not lower back: It is common to have many musculature pain symptoms. The upper back or trapesius muscles can be painful as an effect of the whole neuro-muscular cause and effect of TMJ disorders. I have not seen any lower back symptoms in my practice directly attributable to the tmj.
