"Despite its cryptic origin, referred pain from Trigger Points can be devastatingly severe.
Fortunately, pain due to myofascial TPs can be identifiable by careful history and skillful
physical examination; it is quickly responsive to physical medical management in
the absence of serious perpetuating factors"( Simons: DG, ref 1).
The study of trigger points is frequently dummed down to: "this is the sore spot
in the muscle, and this is the zone of referred pain: Squeeze the trigger point
and you will fix the problem". But trigger points are more than just that. If
we truly want to find successful approaches to diagnosis and treatment of trigger
point induced pain and inflammation, we need to broaden our understanding. This
series of articles does just that.
