Abstract

Introduction: Matrix rhythm therapy is a cell biological therapy approach developed at the University of Erlangen, Germany. Low coherent magneto mechanical waves are applied to synchronize the regeneration and function of the cell. The purpose of this clinical trial was to investigate the effects of Matrix rhythm therapy in patients with myofascial trigger points.
Materials and Methods: A sample of 21 patients (17 Women, 4 Men) with upper trapezius myofascial trigger points received 9 sessions of matrix rhythm therapy. Outcome measures were pain and function which were measured by Constant - Murleyscore. Data was collected at baseline and after 9 sessions of treatment intervention.
Results: There was significant difference between the pretest and posttest scores. 20 out of 21 patients had zero pain after 9 sessions of matrix. All the patients showed improvement in function and pain intensity.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that Matrix rhythm therapy is effective at improving symptoms and deactivating the myofascial trigger points.

Keywords: Matrixrhythm therapy, Myofascial trigger points, Cell biological therapy.
