Title: The relative effectiveness of chiropractic manipulation to the level of main segmental nerve supply as opposed to dry needling in the treatment of muscles with myofascial trigger points
Authors: Pooke, Hayden Clyde 
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: 
Myofascial trigger points are a common problem for patients as weJl as physicians. According to some authors Myofascial Pain Syndromes encompass the largest group of unrecognised and under-treated medical disorders. At present, needling techniques seem to be most effective in treating myofascial trigger points, however, many chiropractors claim that manipulation alone is sufficient for trigger point amelioration. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of chiropractic manipulation to the level of main segmental nerve supply versus dry needling in the treatment of selected muscles with myofascial trigger points.
