Course Description


Myofascial pain and dysfunction syndrome (MFPD) is a commonly seen condition in most chiropractic practices.  Accurate diagnosis of these associated Myofascial trigger points (MFTP’s) is an important aspect of successful treatment intervention, and the criteria and additional approaches will be discussed. Various proposed mechanisms have been previously established, in many cases based on the intervention that is presented. In this presentation, we will introduce these proposed mechanisms and the relevant treatment interventions, to explain their effect, with the current best evidence of effectiveness.


• Understand the proposed physiology of MFTP’s development
• Apply the recommended diagnostic criteria of MFTP’s
• Know the additional diagnostic methods available
• Understand the treatment interventions and their proposed mechanisms
• Apply the treatment interventions based on best evidence
