Myofascial pain syndrome is a fairly common condition in modern society. It can be viewed both as a medical and socio-economical problem, as it is related to a decrease in working ability. The goal of our study was to assess effectiveness of treatment of myofascial pain syndrome by injections of bioregulatory medications into trigger points (biopuncture). Injections were performed with preparations of the German company “Heel”, namely, so called cocktail of Traumeel, Lymphomyosot and Spascupreel. 26 patients underwent treatment with biopuncture. Maximal number of sessions was 5. Subcutaneous and intramuscular injections were made in cervical and scapular regions. Assessment of the results of treatment was mainly based on subjective data of the patients: decrease of pain and stiffness in cervical and scapular regions, improvement of the quality of sleep, increase of working ability. Results were positive in 96% of cases. It is worthwhile to mention that the majority of patients experienced marked improvement of symptoms after the first session. It should be emphasized, as well, that probability of side effects was low and positive effect was achieved more rapidly, compared to other methods of treatment, such as massage and physical exercise.
