Article title

Myofascial Trigger Points and the Body Posture - Deactivating them Applying Magnetic Fields (preliminary reports)

Title variants
Languages of publication
Myofascial pain syndrome is sensory, motor, autonomic disorder caused by the occurrence of trigger points (TrP). In literature the possibilities of deactivating TrPs through exposure to magnetic field (MF) can be noticed. The aim of current research is an attempt at answering the question whether MF changes TrP activity. Tests were carried out on 22 volunteers, who were divided into three groups. First was exposed to static MF using MagneticUnit discs, second was exposed to slow changing MF using Viofor-JPS. The third was exposed to magnetoledotherapy, also using Viofor-JPS.
