The Myofascial Trigger Point Region: Correlation Between the Degree of Irritability and the Prevalence of Endplate Noise
TLDR
The irritability of an MTrp is highly correlated with the prevalence of EPN in the MTrP region of the upper trapezius muscle, and the assessment ofEPN prevalence in an MtrP region may be applied to evaluate the irritability. Expand
Dry Needling to a Key Myofascial Trigger Point May Reduce the Irritability of Satellite MTrPs
TLDR
Evidence is provided that dry needle–evoked inactivation of a primary (key) MTrP inhibits the activity in satellite MTrPs situated in its zone of pain referral, which supports the concept that activity in a primary MTrp leads to the development of activity in satellites MTrps and the suggested spinal cord mechanism responsible for this phenomenon.

Remote Therapeutic Effectiveness of Acupuncture in Treating Myofascial Trigger Point of the Upper Trapezius Muscle
TLDR
It appears that needling to the remote AcP points with multiple needle insertions of modified AcP technique is a better technique thansimple needling insertion of simple needling technique in terms of the decrease in pain intensity and prevalence of endplate noise and the increase in pressure pain threshold in the needling sites. Expand
Spinal cord mechanism involving the remote effects of dry needling on the irritability of myofascial trigger spots in rabbit skeletal muscle.
TLDR
This remote effect of dry needling depends on an intact afferent pathway from the stimulating site to the spinal cord and a normal spinal cord function at the levels corresponding to the innervation of the proximally affected muscle. Expand
Remote influences of acupuncture on the pain intensity and the amplitude changes of endplate noise in the myofascial trigger point of the upper trapezius muscle.
TLDR
Both subjective changes in the pain intensity and objective changes of the EPN amplitude in the MTrP region of the upper trapezius muscle were found during and after acupuncture treatment at the remote ipsilateral acupuncture points. Expand
Needling therapy for myofascial pain: recommended technique with multiple rapid needle insertion
TLDR
This technique is strongly recommended for myofascial pain therapy in order to resume patient’s normal life rapidly, thus saving medical and social resources. Expand
Effects of ultrasound and diclofenac phonophoresis on inflammatory pain relief: suppression of inducible nitric oxide synthase in arthritic rats.
TLDR
Ultrasound and phonophoresis treatments probably modulate and prevent the CFA-insult-induced increase in total and regional iNOS-LI neurons. Expand
Electrophysiologic Effects of a Therapeutic Laser on Myofascial Trigger Spots of Rabbit Skeletal Muscles
TLDR
It seems that laser irradiation may inhibit the irritability of an MTrS in rabbit skeletal muscle, which may be a possible mechanism for myofascial pain relief with laser therapy. Expand
Low‐level laser therapy alleviates neuropathic pain and promotes function recovery in rats with chronic constriction injury: Possible involvements in hypoxia‐inducible factor 1α (HIF‐1α)
TLDR
Low‐level laser therapy significantly improved paw withdrawal threshold and the sciatic, tibial, and peroneal functional indices after CCI, and may be used as a novel and clinically applicable therapeutic approach for the improvement of tissue hypoxia/ischemia and inflammation in nerve entrapment neuropathy, as well as for the promotion of nerve regeneration. Expand
Ginkgo biloba extract attenuates oxLDL-induced endothelial dysfunction via an AMPK-dependent mechanism.
TLDR
Insight is provided into a possible molecular mechanism by which GbE protects against oxLDL-induced endothelial dysfunction via an AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK)-dependent mechanism. Expand
