Evaluation of sympathetic vasoconstrictor response following nociceptive stimulation of latent myofascial trigger points in humans.


AIM Myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) are a major cause of musculoskeletal pain. It has been reported that stimulation of a latent MTrP increases motor activity and facilitates muscle pain via activation of the sympathetic nervous system. However, the magnitude of the sympathetic vasoconstrictor response following stimulation of MTrP has not been studied in… (More)
