Pain is multifactorial, requiring an approach that addresses a variety of etiologies and may include both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic strategies. No two cases are the same. One patient may present with symptoms from nerve impingement while the next has myofascial pain as the primary pain generator. When imaging and tests are negative, Kent charts provide research-based anatomical information to address soft tissue pain.

For those patients with myofascial pain, Kent Trigger Point Posters and Flip Chart are efficient clinical tools to help establish the diagnosis and initiate proper treatment. They also serve as an educational resource for explaining to patients their symptoms and the rationale for your proposed treatments. Many patients are surprised to learn just how common it is that low back and neck pain have a myofascial origin complicated by poor ergonomics, posture and habits; ie slumping in a chair while working on the computer, holding a phone between the ear and the shoulder.

Kent Myofascial Trigger Points Posters are the most comprehensive, organized, and easy to use on the market.  This product will help you precisely assess, treat, document, and educate patients presenting with pain of non-endodontic origin. The charts are based on the research of Drs. Travell and Simons et al. – Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction Vol 1, 2nd ed. and Vol 2.

Kent Trigger point charts provide a fast and accurate approach to treating patients with myofascial pain. These myofascial trigger points posters are comprehensive, organized, and easy to use. Rather than memorizing every trigger point location and the associated referred pain pattern, the right charts keep that information close at hand, ready to assist. Beyond treating pain, we also need tools for identifying the underlying contributing factors. Often, chronic pain is related to daily habits, largely including posture and ergonomics.  The Kent Posture Analysis grid chart enables a myriad of important metrics: static and dynamic posture, bilateral symmetry, range-of-motion (ROM), flexibility, and body composition. Posture photos bring a new meaning to the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Photos help diagnose and treat patients, help educate the patient allowing them to see what’s contributing to their issue. Seeing is believing!
