Example text

This has been confirmed by the use of drugs that inhibit bradykinin release, allowing an active ischemic muscle to remain relatively painless for longer periods (Digiesi 1975). Shah et al (2005) have shown definitively that the environment of a trigger point is extremely acidic. They note that an acidic pH is well known to stimu­ late the production of bradykinin during local ischemia and inflammation and may explain the cause of pain in patients with active myofascial trigger points. Trigger point activity itself may induce relative ischemia in target tissues (Simons et al 1999) and this suggests that any appropriate manual treatment such as positional release - that encourages normal circulatory function is likely to modulate these nega­ tive effects and reduce trigger point activity.

The resulting ischemia in the area creates an oxygen/nutrient deficit, which in turn leads to a local energy crisis. • Without available ATP, the local tissue is unable to remove the calcium ions which are 'keeping the gates open' for ACh to keep escaping. • Removing the superfluous calcium requires more energy than sustaining a contracture, so the contracture remains. • The resulting muscle-fiber contracture (involuntary, without motor potentials) needs to be distinguished from a contraction (voluntary with motor potentials) and spasm (involuntary with motor potentials).

Palpation The practitioner stands behind the side-lying patient, with one or two finger pads of the cephalad hand on the tissues overlying quadratus lumborum, approximately 2 inches (5 cm) lateral to the spinous process of L3. The caudad hand is placed so that the heel rests on gluteus medius and the finger pads on tensor fascia lata (TFL). • • • • The firing sequence of these muscles is assessed during hip abduction. If quadratus lumborum (Ol) fires first (indicated by a strong twitch or 'jump' against the palpating fingers), it is overactive and short.
