Myofascial pain can be caused by any of the structures tangled in the myofascia, including nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Patients who have dysfunction in structures such as tendons or ligaments can usually be diagnosed based on their symptoms and by using standard tests. However, myofascial pain is less easily defined. Individuals may complain of global pain that moves about. Thus, when patients have pain and symptoms that do not seem to fit a standard diagnosis, it may be time to look outside the box at the myofascia.


This course aims to introduce the myofascial system and explore the origins of myofascial pain.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
