Abstract: This article establishes the existing correlations between the anatomical location of muscle trigger points and their ability to affect joint mobility. Deeply located muscles, such as the brachialis and piriformis, do not have joint biomechanical consequences when they contain trigger points, but are more difficult to approach therapeutically, in the sense that they require the injection of anesthetics or anti-inflammatories, the maneuver being guided by ultrasound. Theoretically, patients with arthritis are more exposed to being affected by such trigger points. Cervical or temporo-mandibular biomechanical disorders are caused by trigger points in the trapezium, respectively sternocleidomestoid.

Key words: myofascial pain, joint hypomotility, brachial, piriformis, arthritis
