Trigger points and Myofascial Pain Syndrome

A guide to the unfinished science of muscle pain, with reviews of theory, self-treatment and therapy options

This is not your standard review of current scientific articles as you are used to find on Anatomy & Physiotherapy. Rather, it is a recommendation for an extensive tutorial on trigger points and myofascial pain syndrome (MPS), which was published online.

Trigger points may be more clinically important than most health professionals realize, and body pain seems to be a growing problem. It is hard to imagine a more rewarding topic for doctors and therapists, with a clear path to helping quite a few people you probably couldn’t help before. Even if you already know about myofascial pain syndrome, you will get new ideas here.

The author Paul Ingraham can be found on Facebook (PainScience) with weekly updates on pain, injuries and (innovative) treatment options. Informative, scientifically sound, funny and comprehensive, this should be on your feed!
