Myofascial pain: a bogus construct


page updated

summary

This is the unabridged version of Quintner, notoriously one of the only academic sources of skepticism and criticism of the popular idea of trigger points and myofascial pain syndrome. Unfortunately, it’s highly inaccessible: a chapter in a bizarrely expensive textbook, well over $300 USD for the Kindle edition in 2016, and the hardcover is more than $500.
