Background: An injury to the muscles resulting in the presence of trigger points is known as myofascial pain syndrome. Compression, stretching, overloading, or contracting trigger points can cause hypersensitivity and pain within taut bands of skeletal muscle. These points can cause referred pain that is felt at a distance from the trigger point and can also restrict movement and limit functional activities. Myofascial pain syndrome treatment should address trigger points within a comprehensive program. There are various manual and non-manual interventions available that can help to deactivate trigger points and alleviate the associated pain and discomfort.
Objective: This study seeks to investigate the latest research on myofascial trigger points and evaluate the effectiveness of integrated neuro-muscular inhibition.
Method: The effectiveness of Integrated Neuromuscular Inhibition on myofascial trigger points in a general population was assessed through systematic literature review. Using the PEDro methodological quality scale, two authors independently evaluated the methodological quality of each randomized controlled trial. In order to identify articles meeting the inclusion criteria, the primary researcher reviewed their titles and abstracts.
Results: In comparison with alternative interventions, an integrated approach (INIT) for treating TrPs in patients with neck pain has demonstrated greater efficacy in reducing pain, improving functional ability, reducing disability and enhancing quality of life
Conclusion: This review's findings add to the increasing body of evidence that endorses the utilization of INIT for individuals who have active TrPs.
