The relative effectiveness of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation versus ultrasound therapy in the treatment of temporamandibular joint dysfunction caused by masticatory myofascial trigger points, in terms of subjective and objective clinical findings
The purpose of this randomized controlled clinical trial was to investigate the relative effectiveness of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) versus ultrasound therapy for the treatment of Temporomandibular ...
The treatment of myofascial pain syndrome using therapeutic ultrasound, on upper trapezius trigger points : a double-blinded placebo controlled study comparing the pulsed and continuous waveforms of ultrasound
This study was a prospective, randomised, double blinded, placebo controlled, comparative clinical trial to establish the efficacy of therapeutic ultrasound and compare the effectiveness of the two waveforms of ultrasound ...
The efficacy of magnesium phosphate, as an adjunct to dry needling in the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome
The purpose of this clinical trial was to evaluate the efficacy of Magnesium phosphate, as an adjunct to dry needling, in the treatment of Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS), in terms of objective and subjective clinical ...
The effectiveness of dry needling versus Flurbiprofen LAT patch in the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome of the upper Trapezius muscle
Background: Dry needling is known to be effective and efficient in the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome; pragmatically however, patients utilise Flurbiprofen LAT patches as home therapy anticipating similar results. ...
The efficacy of therapeutic faradic stimulation in patients with myofascial pain syndrome of the trapezius and levator scapula musculature
The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of Therapeutic Faradic Stimulation in patients with Myofascial Pain Syndrome of theTrapezius and Levator Scapula musculature. This study was a quantitative pilot ...
An investigation into the relationship of myofascial trigger points in the head and neck region in association with temporomandibular joint dysfunction
Introduction: The aetiology of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJD) is not fully understood and the treatment of TMJD is controversial. Most treatment plans are based on postulated aetiology. Treatment plans currently ...
The relative effectiveness of myofascial trigger point manipulation as compared to proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitative stretching in the treatment of active myofascial trigger points: a pilot clinical investigation
Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is defined as the sensory, motor and autonomic symptoms caused by myofascial trigger points (MFTPs), or hyperirritable spots within skeletal muscles that are associated with palpable nodules ...
The effect of cryotherapy on post dry needling soreness
Dry needling is the most effective way of treating Myofascial Pain Syndrome and appears to be as effective as an injection of an anaesthetic into myofascial trigger points. However the side effect common to both dry ...
The effectiveness of a home programme of ischaemic compression compared with self applied ischaemic compression under clinical observation for the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome of the levator scapulae muscle
The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a home programme of ischaemic compression in the treatment of Myofascial Pain Syndrome.
The effect of four different manipulative techniques on Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome (ITBFS) in terms of primary and secondary outcome measures
Background: Iliotibial band friction syndrome is a common dysfunction seen in athletes. Athletes develop biomechanical changes yet still continue with their sport. However, this syndrome limits their ability to participate ...
