Myofascial Trigger Point Charts
Kent Trigger Point Charts aid to assess, diagnose, treat, and document patients suffering from myofascial pain. Additionally, they serve as a powerful educational resource for explaining to patients their symptoms and the rationale for recommended treatments.
Pain Referral Areas
Color-coded Pain Referral Areas improves accuracy for patients and the healthcare team. Patients can effortlessly identify specific Pain Referral Areas.
Healthcare providers instantly see the muscles connected with each Pain Referral Area in numerous ways. First, as text listing muscles in their typical order of involvement, while also indicating the specific trigger point (TrP) number, plus cross-referencing muscles to evaluate on other charts in the set.
Second, as visual images displayed in columns. Initially, columns organize muscles by region, compartment, and action. Further, columns position muscles in a superficial to deep order. Providers can quickly identify the muscles in each column associated with a particular Pain Referral Area guided by the corresponding color swatch.
Full-color body images with superimposed anatomical illustrations aid in locating myofascial Trigger Points and seeing their associated pain referral patterns. “X” indicates the position of trigger points. Red designates the common pain referral patterns. Solid red areas exhibit Essential Pain Zones, and red stippled areas display Spillover Pain Zones.
Improve efficiency and clinical outcomes. Quickly identifying Active vs. Latent, Central vs. Attachment, and Key vs. Satellite Trigger Points. Distinguish Essential vs. Spillover Pain Zones. Explain myofascial pain generated by Trigger Points vs. Fibromyalgia.
Communicate more effectively during consultations, patient education, and treatment sessions. Use a water-soluble, wet-erase marker to write, circle and underline critical details on the laminated charts. Attach a photo with notations to the patient’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) or Electronic Medical Record (EMR). Wipe clean to erase with water on damp cloth or tissue.
Lamination on both sides of the Trigger Point Flip and Wall Charts provide a durable layer of protection. Instructions printed on charts for quick and easy reference.
Charts based on the research of Drs. Janet Travell, M.D. and Simons, M.D., Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction, The Trigger Point Manual, Vol 1, 2nd ed. and Vol 2.
