That term is not commonly used in pain medicine and I must admit I have never heard of it before. There are trigger point injections for myofascial pain, but perhaps others know more about the technique you named.
: Dr. Whitworth,
: I am visiting this site for the first time today, and I feel like some of the weight of my chronic pain has lifted already. I had successful spinal surgery (c3-7) 2 years ago, but have suffered from TMJ and severe headaches ever since. My primary doc has just about exhausted all his resources on me...he is sending me to something called myopoint. It's my understanding this is some kind of pain mgmt. I am currently taking Flexiril for my tmj, and Prozac for the depression that came with all my pain. Can you give me a clue as to what to expect from myopoint? What can I ask for as far as pain relief?? Thanks so much, I am most grateful. Cynthia
