Trigger points in pelvic pain - Comment on December's journal club by Sandra Gallagher
The pain article that we discussed last night selected research data that supported what they wanted to develop as a protocol. A full review of trigger point research might not lead one to the same conclusion they made.
I am not sure if you already reviewed this study in your distance learning calls.
In my experience I hear people misrepresent the research or overstate the findings. The Fitzgerald test was primarily looking at feasibility of a study considering would patient want to participate and can therapist adhere to the protocol. it was a small n. these are some points from the article that I think people who want to use it as justification for the internal painful MFR don't see or overlook.
