Then, in 1938 there were no less than three important contributions to the subject. qxd 11*10*04 10:15 Page 41 Evolution of knowledge of muscle pain syndromes been considered at some length in Chapter 4. A second was that of the Czechoslovakian physician Reichart, who was one of the first to describe and illustrate diagramatically specific patterns of radiating pains from tender points in muscles. The third came from a Polish physician, Gutstein, following his arrival in England as a political refugee.

Another surgeon to write about the use of acupuncture in hospital practice at Leeds was Simeon Snell. Snell writing in the Medical Times and Gazette in 1880 at a time when he was ophthalmic surgeon to the Sheffield General Hospital says: At the Leeds Infirmary the use of it is almost traditional. It was there that I both saw it employed, practised it myself and witnessed the remarkable benefits frequently resulting. He then proceeds to describe five cases of pain with limitation of movement of the shoulder joint he had treated successfully at Leeds.

It was Steindler who, during the course of reporting how he was able to relieve ‘sciatica’ by injecting Novocain into tender points in muscles in the lumbar and gluteal regions, first called these points trigger points (TrPs). It was, however, Travell who brought this term into general use when, in the early 1950s, she introduced the adjective myofascial and began to refer to myofascial TrPs and to describe the pain coming from these as myofascial pain. She adopted the term myofascial as a result of observing, whilst doing an infraspinatus muscle biopsy, that the pain pattern evoked by stretching or pinching the fascia enveloping the muscle is similar to that when the same is done to the muscle itself.
