For over a quarter century the NAMTPT has been the only organization dedicated to representing professionals whose primary training is focused on identification and treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction. If you experience chronic pain which other types of treatment or medications have not resolved then myofascial trigger points are a likely cause of your pain.
Our symptom checker will help you see if your pain matches myofascial pain patterns. Our therapist directory will send you to an expert in your area. Our web site provides easy to understand explanations of what myofascial pain and trigger points are and how you can get relief. Pain practitioners can learn from experts in the field of myofascial pain at our annual conference.
"Myofascial trigger points are unbelievably common yet commonly overlooked."
David G. Simons, MD Pioneer, researcher and leading expert in the field of pain management
