Introduction: Myofascial Trigger Points (MTrPs) are one of the common causes of musculoskeletal pain. Many of people are suffer pain of this syndrome. This syndrome is a complex process that involves the interaction of biochemical factors, histological change, nociceptors and the neurons of both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Recent studies of MTrPs have focused on the role of biochemical markers such as neuropeptides and inflammatory mediators, etc. Our main aim in the present… Expand

Uncovering the biochemical milieu of myofascial trigger points using in vivo microdialysis: an application of muscle pain concepts to myofascial pain syndrome.
TLDR
This paper relates the findings of elevated levels of sensitizing substances within painful muscle to the current theoretical framework of muscle pain and MTrP development and quantifies the biochemical milieu of skeletal muscle. Expand
Myofascial Trigger Points Then and Now: A Historical and Scientific Perspective
TLDR
The authors chronicle the advances that have led to the current understanding of MTrP pathophysiology and its relationship to MPS, and review the contributions of clinicians and researchers who have influenced and expanded the contemporary level of clinical knowledge and practice. Expand
Biochemicals associated with pain and inflammation are elevated in sites near to and remote from active myofascial trigger points.
TLDR
The feasibility of continuous, in vivo recovery of small molecules from soft tissue without harmful effects is shown and the milieu of the gastrocnemius in subjects with active MTPs in the trapezius differs from subjects without active MTFs. Expand

TLDR
Although myofascial pain syndromes have been described in the medical literature for about the last 100 years, it is only recently that scientific studies have revealed objective abnormalities. Expand
Circulating biomarkers in acute myofascial pain
TLDR
Serum inflammatory and growth factor biomarkers were elevated in MPS patients and may play an important role in the onset and maintenance of MPS and therefore may be useful in the diagnosis and treatment of Mps. Expand
Peripheral and Spinal Mechanisms of Pain and Dry Needling MediatedAnalgesia: A Clinical Resource Guide for Health Care Professionals
TLDR
DN activates opioid-based pain reduction, mediated by endogenous cannabinoids and the sympathetic nervous system, and non- opioid pain relief via serotonin and norepinephrine from the brain stem and electric DN inhibits ERK1/2 kinase pathways of inflammation in the spinal cord and stimulates Aδ fibers and N/OFQ to reverse C-fiber mediated central changes. Expand
Myofascial Trigger Points: An Evidence-Informed Review
TLDR
Current scientific evidence strongly supports that awareness and working knowledge of muscle dysfunction and in particular myofascial trigger points should be incorporated into manual physical therapy practice consistent with the guidelines for clinical practice developed by the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapists. Expand
Myofascial trigger points and innervation zone locations in upper trapezius muscles
TLDR
The purpose of this work was to describe the location of MTrPs and the IZ in the right upper trapezius, and it is concluded that IZ and MTrps are located in well-defined areas in upper Trapezius muscle. Expand
Remote Dose-Dependent Effects of Dry Needling at Distant Myofascial Trigger Spots of Rabbit Skeletal Muscles on Reduction of Substance P Levels of Proximal Muscle and Spinal Cords
TLDR
This remote effect of dry needling involves the reduction of SP levels in proximal muscle and spinal superficial laminaes, which may be closely associated with the control of myofascial pain. Expand
Etiology of Myofascial Trigger Points
TLDR
Knowing the potential causes of myofascial trigger points is important to prevent their development and recurrence, but also to inactivate and eliminate existing TrPs. Expand
