  Purpose

Objective: To determine if the combination of blocking the Myofascial trigger point (MTP) plus a standardized therapeutic exercise program, is more effective than only the blocking or the therapeutic exercise; to relieve the pain and improve the function and the quality of life in a Group of patients con MTP in the shoulder girdle and the neck.

Methods: We propose a double blind randomized controlled clinical trial, in different health centers in Medellin. The subjects are patients with MTP in muscles of the shoulder girdle (levator scapulae, trapezius, infraspinatus) diagnosed by neck ans shoulder pain lasting langer than 6 weeks, and that have not received rehabilitation treatment and are not currently taking analgesic medications. We have calculated a sample of 45 patients in each group.

Primary outcomes: Pain 4 weeks later wich will be measured in a VAS (Visual analogue scale) a successful treatment is defined as a reduction in pain in 20% from the initial score 4 weeks after the first evaluation.

Secondary outcomes SF-36 bodily pain scale Function measured with the hand back and hand mouth maneuvers. Complications and adverse reactions Need for rescue medication.
