Doaa Said Mohamed Ibrahim, Dr. Doaa I. Amin, Prof. Dr. Neveen Abdel Lattif Abdel Raoof.

Abstract
Background: Myofascial trigger points are among the most common, yet poorly recognized and inadequately managed causes of myofascial pain seen in medical practice with a point of prevalence from 10% to 18% and lifetime prevalence from 30% to 50%. Purposes of this study: were to compare the effect of shock wave therapy with progressive pressure release on pain pressure threshold of active myofascial trigger points of upper trapezius muscle. And to compare the effect of shock wave therapy with progressive pressure release on pain and function level of the neck.
Subjects: Thirty patients with active myofascial trigger points of upper fiber of trapezius, age from 18 to 35 years old participated in the study. Methods: patients were assigned randomly to two equal study groups: Group (A) 15 participants received shock wave therapy, Group (B) 15 participants received progressive pressure release technique. All treatments applied for 2 weeks. Pressure pain threshold (PPT) was assessed with pressure algometer, pain severity and function level was assessed with Neck disability index (NDI). All evaluations were performed before and after treatment. Results: there was significant increase of pain pressure threshold in trigger point 1(TrP) & trigger point 2 after treatment in both groups, but there was non-significant difference in mean values of pain pressure threshold in TrP1& TrP2 between both groups before and after treatment. There was significant decrease of NDI scores after treatment in both groups, but there was non-significant difference in mean values of NDI scores between both groups before and after treatment. Conclusion: Both shock wave therapy and progressive pressure release is effective in treatment of active myofascial trigger points.

Key words: Shock wave therapy, Progressive pressure release technique, Active myofascial trigger points, Pressure algometer, Neck disability index.
