The ‘trigger point debate’ continued: Quintner et al’s response to rebuttal of their paper

JBMT_Cover-226x300In December 2014, Quintner, Bove & Cohen published an article that critiqued the theories and practices that surround assessment and treatment of myofascial trigger points, and their reported symptoms (e.g. myofascial pain)

In the April 2015 issue  of The Journal of Bodywork & Movement Therapies a rebuttal of that article (by Dommerholt and Gerwin) will be published.

This is available as an open access paper (for six months) from:

Today, Elsevier have agreed to Open Access for six months for  a Letter to the Editor of JBMT, that responds to that rebuttal, and which will be published in JBMT in its’ July 2015 issue.
