Example text

With permission from Virginia P. ) It was Steindler who, during the course of reporting how he was able to relieve ‘sciatica’ by injecting Novocain into tender points in muscles in the lumbar and gluteal regions, first called these points trigger points (TrPs). It was, however, Travell who brought this term into general use when, in the early 1950s, she introduced the adjective myofascial and began to refer to myofascial TrPs and to describe the pain coming from these as myofascial pain.

The search for the source of trouble by defining areas of tenderness is often confused by the patients calling attention to areas of referred tenderness. But referred tenderness is rarely conspicuous, and I have found it a useful guide to consider tenderness to be referred unless the patient winces under the palpation of a given spot. When these acutely tender spots were not too extensive they were infiltrated with 1% Novocain … This infiltration often produced relief of the symptoms and signs, and sometimes abolished them completely.
