Pain management pioneer, David Simons, MD, once commented that Myofascial Trigger Points are unbelievably common yet commonly overlooked.

For more than 25 years the National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists (NAMTPT) has been the only organization dedicated to representing professionals whose primary training is focused on the identification and treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction. But,  all pain practitioners, manual therapists included, can learn from the experts in the field at the annual NAMTPT conference this week in Boston.
