- hypothesisThe treatment of Myofascial Trigger Points (MTrPs) in the trapezius muscle with ischaemic compression and ultrasound originated a short-term improvement of cervical mobility, relaxation of trapezius, and reduction of its sensitivity in patiens with neck pain.

- Target number of participants66
- InterventionsUltrasound and ischaemic compression techniques. There are three groups:
1. G1, which will receive ischemic compression on myofascial trigger point;
2. G2, which will receive ultrasound;
3. G3 (control), which receive sham ultrasound (the ultrasound is disconnected).
- Primary outcome1. Active range of motion of cervical rachis (lateral flexion), measured with a cervical range of motion instrument;
2. Basal electrical activity of trapezius muscle, measured using a surface electromyography;
3. Pressure Tolerance, using a pressure analog algometer. A pressure of 2.5 kg/cmē will be applied on myofascial trigger point. A visual analog scale will record the sensation the subject perceived in that moment.
- Secondary outcomeAnalyze the data obtained taking into account the age and sex of subjects, to establish effectiveness criteria.
- TimepointsImmediate.

- Brief summaryThe purpose of this study was to determine immediate effects of ischemic compression (IC) and ultrasound (US) for the treatment of myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) in the trapezius muscle in patients with neck pain.
Subjects will be randomly distributed into three groups G1, will receive IC treatment for MTrPs; G2, will receive US; and G3 (control), will receive sham US. The following data will be recorded before and after each treatment: active range of motion (AROM) of cervical rachis measured with a cervical range of motion instrument, basal electrical activity (BEA) of muscle trapezius measured with surface electromyography, and pressure tolerance of MTrP measured with visual analogue scale assessing local pain evoked by the application of 2.5 kg/cm2 of pressure using a pressure analog algometer.
