OBJECTIVE To elucidate the neural mechanisms underlying the remote effects produced by dry needling rabbit skeletal muscle myofascial trigger spots (MTrSs) via analyses of their endplate noise (EPN) recordings. DESIGN Experimental animal controlled trial. SETTING An animal laboratory of a university. ANIMALS Male New Zealand rabbits (N=96) (body weight, 2.5-3.0kg; age, 16-20wk). INTERVENTION Animals received no intervention for neural interruption in group I, transection of the tibial… 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
Remote Subcutaneous Needling to Suppress the Irritability of Myofascial Trigger Spots: An Experimental Study in Rabbits
TLDR
The irritability of proximal MTrSs could be modulated after ipsilateral FSNs, and the placement of FSN may affect the effectiveness of suppression of irritability in rabbit skeletal muscle. Expand
Dry Needling at Myofascial Trigger Spots of Rabbit Skeletal Muscles Modulates the Biochemicals Associated with Pain, Inflammation, and Hypoxia
TLDR
Dry needling at the MTrSs modulates various biochemicals associated with pain, inflammation, and hypoxia in a dose-dependent manner. Expand
Acupuncture at Distant Myofascial Trigger Spots Enhances Endogenous Opioids in Rabbits: A Possible Mechanism for Managing Myofascial Pain
TLDR
Interactions within the endogenous opioid system may be involved in the remote effects of acupuncture treatment and could be a potential analgesic mechanism underlying MTrP pain management, as demonstrated in rabbits. Expand
The immediate effect of multiple mechanical impulses on electromyography and pressure pain threshold of lumbar latent trigger points: an experimental study
TLDR
The immediate effect of one session of mechanical impulses to lumbar latent MTrPs and to normal muscle tissue with pressure pain threshold (PPT) and surface electromyography (sEMG) was associated with a significant increase in PPT for both groups and a significant decrease in the resting electrical activity of theLumbar muscles only in the MTrP group. Expand
Therapeutic effects of dry needling in patients with upper trapezius myofascial trigger points
TLDR
The results of this study showed that one session of DN targeting active MTrPs appears to reduce hyperactivity of the sympathetic nervous system and irritability of the motor endplate. Expand
The Effect of Dry Needling to the Multifidus Muscle on Resting and Contracted Thickness of Transversus Abdominis in Subjects with Low Back Pain
TLDR
To measure the effects of dry needling to the lumbar multifidus muscle for any change in resting and contracted thickness of the transversus abdominis (TrA) muscle as well as symptoms and disability in individuals with low back pain, a Randomized, double-blinded, controlled clinical trial is conducted.

TLDR
There were significant improvements in maximum jaw-opening distance and EPN prevalence after ULF-TENS in animals with MMP, suggesting that ULF -TENS may represent a novel and applicable therapeutic approach for improvement of orofacial pain induced by MMP. Expand
Trigger point dry needling for the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome: current perspectives within a pain neuroscience paradigm
TLDR
The current review proposes that the application of trigger point dry needling should be integrated into current pain neuroscience paradigm by combining its application with pain neuroscience education, graded exercise and manual therapy. Expand
Electromyographic Assessment of the Efficacy of Deep Dry Needling versus the Ischemic Compression Technique in Gastrocnemius of Medium-Distance Triathletes
TLDR
According to the findings immediately after treatment of latent MTrPs, DDN could be advisable for triathletes who train at a speed lower than 1 m/s, while ICT could be a more advisable technique than DDN for training or competitions at speeds greater than 1.5m/s. 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.

TLDR
It is essential to elicit LTRs during injection to obtain an immediately desirable effect, and TrP injection with 0.5% lidocaine is recommended, because it reduces the intensity and duration of postinjection soreness compared with that produced by dry needling. Expand
Remote Effects of Dry Needling on the Irritability of the Myofascial Trigger Point in the Upper Trapezius Muscle
TLDR
Dry needling of a distal myofascial trigger point can provide a remote effect to reduce the irritability of a proximal myofasher trigger point. Expand
Dry needle stimulation of myofascial trigger points evokes segmental anti-nociceptive effects.
TLDR
The results suggest that trigger point (sensitive locus) stimulation may evoke anti-nociceptive effects by modulating segmental mechanisms, which may be an important consideration in the management of myofascial pain. 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
Effect of Botulinum Toxin on Endplate Noise in Myofascial Trigger Spots of Rabbit Skeletal Muscle
TLDR
This study demonstrated the suppressive effect of BTX-A on endplate noise prevalence in a myofascial trigger spot region, which may be a useful objective indicator for evaluating the therapeutic effectiveness of BTx-A injection to treat myofAscial trigger points. Expand
Inhibitory Effect of Dry Needling on the Spontaneous Electrical Activity Recorded from Myofascial Trigger Spots of Rabbit Skeletal Muscle
TLDR
Dry needling of the myofascial trigger spot is effective in diminishing SEA if local twitch responses are elicited, and the local twitch response elicitation seems to be the primary inhibitory factor on SEA during dry needling. Expand
Short-term effects of dry needling of active myofascial trigger points in the masseter muscle in patients with temporomandibular disorders.
TLDR
The application of dry needling into active TrPs in the masseter muscle induced significant increases in PPT levels and maximal jaw opening when compared to the sham dry needled in patients with myofascial TMD. Expand
Spontaneous Electrical Activity of Rabbit Trigger Spot After Transection of Spinal Cord and Peripheral Nerve
TLDR
There was no significant change in the prevalence and amplitude of SEA up to 60 minutes after spinal cord transection and 30 minutes after subsequent nerve transections, and the occurrence of SEA is not mediated through the spinal or supraspinal circuits. Expand

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
