  Title Thermographic imaging of myofascial trigger points [case report]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1988 Apr;11(2):114-117
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Thermographic findings in two patients suffering from myofascial trigger points are presented. These are shown as discrete foci of increased thermal emission, with corresponding areas of diffuse hyperthermia. These thermal findings correlate highly with the classic locations of specific trigger points and their areas of pain referral, respectively, as described in literature. Not only do these cases describe a thermal pattern that varies somewhat from previous reports, but they also illustrate the previously unreported imaging of areas of pain referral from specific trigger points.
