Low back pain (LBP) is highly prevalent and costly to the society. Previous studies have shown an association between radicular LBP and trigger points in the superior-lateral quadrant of the gluteal area (GTrP). The objective of current study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of GTrP to predict nerve root involvement among patients with LBP.

Pain experienced by patients with plantar heel pain has been associated with fascia thickness. It is possible that referred muscle pain may also be related to symptoms experienced by these patients. O...
Gluteal muscle contracture (GMC) is a clinical syndrome characterized by limited hip joint function due to fibrosis and contracture of the gluteal muscle and fascia fiber. Imaging examination is signi...
The utility of diagnostic transforaminal epidural injection in selective percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy for multi-level disc herniation with mono-radicular symptom: a prospective randomized control study.
the aim of this study to analyze the clinical outcomes of diagnostic transforaminal epidural injection (DTEI) in selective percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy for multi-level disc herniation wit...
In patients with a long-lasting TMD syndrome, especially of a muscular nature, palpation examination can locate the trigger points of pain (TrP) in the chewing muscles, i.e., the nodules i...
To study the clinical characteristics of headache patients with pericranial myofascial trigger points(MTrPs),and to explore the possible pathogenesis of MTrPs,investigators hope to find th...
Hypothesis The application of intramuscular electrostimulation will be more effectiveness than the dry needling in myofascial trigger points treatment. Objetives: To determine the ...
The aims of this study are: - To examine the inter-rater reliability for assessing myofascial trigger points using a myotonometer - To determinate the strength of the co...
The radiolucent periapical jaw lesions of 34 patients, which were surgically enucleated, were investigated by two radiologists using MRI, based on the same six criteria, to categorize the ...
Muscular pain in numerous body regions that can be reproduced by pressure on trigger points, localized hardenings in skeletal muscle tissue. Pain is referred to a location distant from the trigger points. A prime example is the TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME.
A common nonarticular rheumatic syndrome characterized by myalgia and multiple points of focal muscle tenderness to palpation (trigger points). Muscle pain is typically aggravated by inactivity or exposure to cold. This condition is often associated with general symptoms, such as sleep disturbances, fatigue, stiffness, HEADACHES, and occasionally DEPRESSION. There is significant overlap between fibromyalgia and the chronic fatigue syndrome (FATIGUE SYNDROME, CHRONIC). Fibromyalgia may arise as a primary or secondary disease process. It is most frequent in females aged 20 to 50 years. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1494-95)
Discrete spots in taut bands of muscle that produce local and referred pain when muscle bands are compressed.
The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.
