Triggerpoints create pain that is referred to distant location.

True

8

True or false:
Having a referral pattern is one of the essential criteria for identifying a trigger point.

True

9

Triggerpoints refer a pattern that the person recognizes, including pain, tingling, numbness, burning, itching and other sensations.

Active

11

Triggerpoints may become active at any time, adding to or expanding existing patterns of pain.

Latent

13

a) always be painful
b) only be painful when palpated
c) always have referred pain
d) sometimes be painful
e) never be painful
