Book Description :

This book is about empowerment for chronic pain patients and care providers alike. Every chronic pain condition has a treatable myofascial trigger point component, including fibromyalgia. Many of the localized symptoms now considered as fibromyalgia are actually due to trigger points. The central sensitization of fibromyalgia amplifies symptoms that trigger points cause, and this book teaches care providers and patients how to identify and treat those causes. Chronic myofascial pain due to trigger points can be body-wide, and can cause or maintain fibromyalgia central sensitization. Trigger points can cause and/or maintain or contribute to many types of pain and dysfunction, including numbness and tingling, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis, cognitive dysfunctions and disorientation, impotence, incontinence, loss of voice, pelvic pain, muscle weakness, menstrual pain, TMJ dysfunction, shortness of breath, and many symptoms attributed to old age or "atypical" or psychological sources. Trigger point therapy has been around for decades, but only recently have trigger points been imaged at the Mayo Clinic and National Institutes of Health. Their ubiquity and importance is only now being recognized. Devin Starlanyl is a medically trained chronic myofascial pain and fibromyalgia researcher and educator, as well as a patient with both of these conditions. She has provided chronic pain education and support to thousands of patients and care providers around the world for decades. John Sharkey is a physiologist with more than twenty-seven years of anatomy experience, and the director of a myofascial pain facility. Together they have written a comprehensive reference to trigger point treatment to help patients with fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, and many other conditions. This guide will be useful for all types of doctors, nurses, therapists, bodyworkers, and lay people, facilitating communication between care providers and patients and empowering patients who now struggle with all kinds of misunderstood and unexplained symptoms. Part 1 explains what trigger points are and how they generate symptoms, refer pain and other symptoms to other parts of the body, and create a downward spiral of dysfunction. The authors look at the interconnection between fibromyalgia and myofascial trigger points and their possible causes and symptoms; identify stressors that perpetuate trigger points such as poor posture, poor breathing habits, nutritional inadequacies, lack of sleep, and environmental and psychological factors; and provide a list of over one hundred pain symptoms and their most common corresponding trigger point sources. Part 2 describes the sites of trigger points and their referral patterns within each region of the body, and provides pain relief solutions for fibromyalgia and trigger point patients and others with debilitating symptoms. Pain treatment plans include both self-help remedies for the patient—stretching or postural exercises, self-massage techniques and prevention strategies—as well as diagnostic and treatment hints for care providers. Part 3 offers guidance for both patients and care providers in history taking, examination, and palpation skills, as well as treatment options. It offers a vision for the future that includes early assessment, adequate medical training, prevention of fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis, changes to chronic pain management and possible solutions to the health care crisis, and a healthier version of our middle age and golden years, asserting that patients have a vital role to play in the management of their own health.

Book Description :

Abstract : Background: The management of patients presenting with chronic tension-type headache (CTTH) can be challenging for primary health care practitioners. As with most chronic pain disorders, a multimodal management approach is frequently required. It has been postulated that myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) and its hallmark myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) found in specific muscle tissues may play a role in the chronic pain experienced by patients with CTTH. Little is known about the prevalence of MTrPs in patients with CTTH, in primary health care settings on the African continent. This study therefore aimed to investigate the prevalence of active MTrP's in specific head and neck muscles/muscle groups in patients with CTTH. Methods: A prospective, cross-sectional and descriptive study was done in two primary health care facilities situated in Tshwane, South Africa. The sample included 97 adult patients with CTTH. Five head and neck muscles/muscle groups were examined bilaterally for active MTrPs. Outcome measures were the prevalence and distribution of active MTrPs in these patients. Results: Active MTrPs were found in 95.9% of the patients, the majority (74.2%) having four or more active MTrPs. The temporalis muscles and suboccipital muscle group exhibited the highest number of active MTrPs (prevalence 87.6% and 80.4% respectively). Conclusion: Our study suggests a strong association between MPS and CTTH in patients, presenting in the primary health care setting. This indicates the importance of a musculoskeletal assessment of neck and pericranial muscles in patients with CTTH. This can assist in determining the most appropriate treatment strategy in these patients.

Book Description :

Trigger point therapy is one of the fastest-growing and most effective pain therapies in the world. Medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists are all beginning to use this technique to relieve patients’ formerly undiagnosable muscle and joint pain, both conditions that studies have shown to be the cause of nearly 25 percent of all doctor visits. This book addresses the problem of myofascial trigger points—tiny contraction knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. Restricted circulation and lack of oxygen in these points cause referred pain. Massage of the trigger is the safest, most natural, and most effective form of pain therapy. Trigger points create pain throughout the body in predictable patterns characteristic to each muscle, producing discomfort ranging from mild to severe. Trigger point massage increases circulation and oxygenation in the area and often produces instant relief. The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, Third Edition, has made a huge impact among health professionals and the public alike, becoming an overnight classic in the field of pain relief. This edition includes a new chapter by the now deceased author, Clair Davies’ daughter, Amber Davies, who is passionate about continuing her father’s legacy. The new edition also includes postural assessments and muscle tests, an illustrated index of symptoms, and clinical technique drawings and descriptions to assist both practitioners and regular readers in assessing and treating trigger points. If you have ever suffered from, or have treated someone who suffers from myofascial trigger point pain, this is a must-have book.

Book Description :

Background and aimsLow back pain (LBP) involves both myofascial and neuropathic components of pain. Neuropathic pain is a widespread problem, require continuous consumption of medications. Muscle spasticity might evoke nerve compression, dry needling (DN) of myofascial trigger points (MTrP) under ultrasound (US) guidance is effective method for treatment myofascial pain [1,2] restoring posture [3] and can be effective for neuropathic pain.The aimwas to evaluate efficacy of dry needling under US guidance for treatment myofascial and neuropathic components of LBP.Materials and MethodsWe included 23 patients, 10 males and 13 females, aged 27-75 years (the average was 52 years) with clinically diagnosed chronic low back pain with neuropathic component.with clinically diagnosed low back pain over 3 month with neuropathic component and reduced motility in spine, pelvis and lower extremity. All patients had symptoms over 3 month, underwent general exam, including MRI, laboratory, neurologic, orthopedic tests.We conducted precise physical tests and neuromuscular ultrasound using M-mode and evaluated nerves and motion in intervetrebral spaces, pelvis, intrinsic foot and leg muscles. We conducted ultrasound survey at the levels of predicted nerve injury.Patients received DN of MTrP under US guidance according to approach by R.Bubnov [1,2], considering nerve entrapment area.Visual analogue scale (VAS, 0-10) and Leeds Assessment of Neuropathic Symptoms and Signs (LANSS) scores were measured before, immediately after, 24 hours, and 7 days after intervention.ResultsAfter 7 days, VAS scores showed pain improvement from 7.3 to 2.3; LANSS scores improved from 16 to 4. In diabetic and postherpetic neuropathy cases we obtained similar results as in rest of patients (p 0.05). US demonstrated improvement nerve structure, increasing motility, contractility (muscle contracted / rested thickness) on M-mode during functional tests and walking in all levels. Improvement of neuropathy signs as decrease of fascicles diameter from 2 to 0.9 mm measured on US in sciatic nerve, both in tibial, peroneal portions, data correlated with self-assessment pain decrease (r 0.8). ConclusionsDry needling under US guidance guidance effectively reduce myofascial pain, ameliorate symptoms of neuropathy and local muscle hypomotility in low back pain. Further research needed for development US patterns and study causation in chain spasticity-contractility- motion-neuropathic pain.
