This study continues the work already done investigating the use of botulinum type A toxin (Botox A) for relief of muscle pain. A specific Botox agent called Dysport ® was used in patients with upper back pain. Dysport® has a much higher biologically active dosage compared to Botox®. All patients had been diagnosed with a condition called myofascial pain syndrome (MPS). MPS is described as chronic muscle pain from shortened or contracted muscles. Trigger points (TrPs) are often part of the clinical picture. TrPs are areas of hyperirritable spots. When pressed or stimulated, TrPs cause a predictable pain pattern. Patients included were men and women between the ages of 18 and 70 years. All had MPS with at least 10 TrPs present in the neck or upper back. Symptoms had been reported for at least six months. Each patient was given a single injection of Dysport® into the 10 most painful TrPs. Pain level after five weeks was the main result measured. Change in pain intensity and number of pain-...

A majority of patients have one question on their minds: Where the "heck" is that pain coming from? A red, painful swollen knee may hurt deep, on the side, in the middle, in the back, or just plain everywhere. A shoulder may hurt with the arm up, down or to the side. Although the question of "where" may seem simple enough, sometimes sorting out the exact location of the pain generator is an inexact science. Within the structure of a joint there exist three general areas of interest: the passive structures, the active structures and the nerves. Dissecting out the source of the pain involves the close examination of each of these areas. Once the location of the pain is found, the hope is that treatment can be directed, focused and effective.
By definition, a joint is where two bones join together to create a hinge joint , a ball-and-socket joint , a saddle joint , or one of the other types of joints found in the human body . Because the bones are not actively doing anything, just pro...
