Hyperexcitability to electrical stimulation and accelerated muscle fatiguability of taut bands in rats.


OBJECTIVE Myofascial trigger points contribute significantly to musculoskeletal pain and motor dysfunction and may be associated with accelerated muscle fatiguability. The aim of this study was to investigate the electrically induced force and fatigue characteristics of muscle taut bands in rats. METHODS Muscle taut bands were dissected out and subjected… (More)
