Myofascial Trigger Points

Introduction to trigger points

CPDG acupuncture and the trigger points

The objective of this online course is to impart knowledge to the learner about trigger points (TrP).

It covers where they originate, how to locate them, how to identify them, and how to alleviate the pain caused by these tender spots in muscles.

This course aims to educate you about the causes of trigger points, as well as safe and effective methods for their treatment.

However, it needs to be emphasised that simply treating trigger points is not enough. Patient education is equally critical to successful treatment. It is essential to educate patients on what caused the painful spots, how they can be prevented, and what they can do at home to alleviate their condition.

It is expected that learners should have a good understanding of basic anatomy and physiology, know how to handle needles, be aware of safety measures for both themselves and their patients, and follow proper hygiene protocols when practicing in clinical settings.

The course includes quizzes to make the learning process interactive.

References to additional information are provided at the end of the course to encourage further learning.

While the course is solely theoretical, attaining proficiency in needling trigger points will require additional practical experience in the field.
