  • medical and structural conditions associated with TrPs
  • the causes of orofacial pain
  • treatment to inactivate TrPs
  • effective therapies for myofascial pain
  • the latest developments in the understanding of fibromyalgia syndrome
  • diagnostic criteria and differential diagnosis of fibromyalgia
  • innovative nonpharmacologic therapies for fibromyalgia
  • the metabolism of muscle cells and metabolic myopathies
  • studies on therapies for idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM)
  • low back pain with the latest therapies
  • reactions in the spinal cord to a painful lesion of a muscle
