CMP PROGNOSIS

CMP PROGNOSIS Treatment of individual isolated events of trigger points has been quite successful. Some people get total relief. However, others who haven't had their symptoms identified and treated appropriately will develop full-blown chronic myofascial pain. In these people, latent trigger points may last a lifetime despite the most appropriate care, possibly because of a disease process yet to be identified.

It's possible to bring trigger points under control with proper myofascial treatment, supervised exercise, medication, and avoidance of perpetuating factors. CMP is not a progressive disorder in that it does not continue to worsen once the trigger points (MTP's) are treated. Left untreated, however, the chances of their total eradication are decreased.

There is no textbook approach to a magical cure for CMP from trigger points. Therapies and treatment are aimed at restoring normal resting muscle fiber length; and maintaining adequate muscle strength, and endurance. However, treating trigger points should result in improvement of life's quality.
