It is characterized clinically by the presence of a palpable taut band of muscle containing localized, hyperirritable
nodules known as a MTrP.
Trigger sites, also known as trigger points or muscle knots, are described as hyperirritable
spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers.
This premier issue featured clinical articles on patients with cervical spondylosis, percutaneous cordotomy, hyperirritable
carotid sinus mechanism, and traumatic head injury.
Trigger points are hyperirritable
areas that are locally tender on compression and can cause referred pain and tenderness.
"A myofascial trigger point is a hyperirritable
locus (spot) within a taut band of skeletal muscle, located in the muscular tissue or its associated fascia (sheath enclosing the muscle).
Vasomotor rhinitis describes a non-allergic "hyperirritable
nose," which may feel congested, blocked or wet.
The airway becomes hyperirritable
; like scraped skin, it's sore.
MTrP are recognized as palpable hyperirritable
nodules located within taut bands of skeletal muscle (5).
INTRODUCTION: Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is characterized by regional pain originating from hyperirritable
spots located within taut bands of skeletal muscle, known as myofascial trigger points (MTrPs).
It usually originates in discrete, hyperirritable
focal spots (trigger points) in a taut band of skeletal muscle; onset of pain often occurs in conjunction with musculoskeletal disorders .
Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a regional condition characterized by trigger points, which are hyperirritable
foci located at the tense bands of skeletal muscle.
In general, antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) either block the initiation of electrical discharges from a hyperirritable
focus or, more commonly, prevent the spread of abnormal electrical discharges to adjacent brain areas.
