The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of myofascial trigger (MTP) point deactivation for tinnitus control in a population with tinnitus and myofascial pain.
A double blind placebo control randomized clinical trial was made to verify the efficacy of the treatment by deactivation of MTP, after 10 sessions, in tinnitus patients by means of comparison with a placebo treatment in a control group. Patients with tinnitus and frequent regional pain for at least 3 months in the head, neck and shoulder girdle were investigated in the Tinnitus Research Group of University of São Paulo Medical School. All of them underwent an interview with the otolaryngologist ("physician researcher"), an audiologist evaluation ("blind researcher"), another blind researcher evaluation for tinnitus and pain and a physiotherapist evaluation and randomization. Both blind researchers evaluated tinnitus and pain in the first, fifth and tenth session. The real treatment was made by a gradual and persistent digital pressure in each MTP previously diagnosed by the blind researcher (8 possible muscles) and some home orientations that included stretch, superficial heat in each treated muscle and watch the correct postures during daily activities and sleeping. In the control group physiotherapist researcher pressed in an adjacent non-tender muscle fibers of the same muscle that have MTP. No other complementary orientation was done.

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.
The pressure at any point in an atmosphere due solely to the weight of the atmospheric gases above the point concerned.
The tendency of a gas or solute to pass from a point of higher pressure or concentration to a point of lower pressure or concentration and to distribute itself throughout the available space. Diffusion, especially FACILITATED DIFFUSION, is a major mechanism of BIOLOGICAL TRANSPORT.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
Measurement of the blood pressure of the retinal vessels. It is used also for the determination of the near point of convergence (CONVERGENCE, OCULAR). (From Cline, et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
