Title: A study of the effectiveness of myofascial trigger point therapy on iliotibial band friction syndrome in sports persons
Authors: Hall, Thandi Antonia 
Issue Date: 1997
Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome is a common problem for patients as well as physicians. Many treatments have been devised for Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome, but there is very little research to substantiate which of these treatments is most effective. Myofascial trigger points are a frequently overlooked and misunderstood phenomenon in the medical curriculae, yet with correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment the prognosis of these trogger points is usually excellent. The aim of this placebo-controlled study was to justify the hypotheses which stated that myofascial trigger point therapy would be effective in the treatment of Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome (IBFS), as compared to detuned ultrasound as a form of treatment.
