Experimental: Dry Needling Therapy
Dry Needly Therapy will be assesses in trigger points on latissimus dorsi, iliocostalis muscle, multifidus muscles, and quadratus lumbourum muscle.
Device: Dry Needling
Dry needling is the use of either solid filiform needles or hollow-core hypodermic needles for therapy of muscle pain, sometimes also known as intramuscular stimulation (IMS). Although dry needling originally utilized only hypodermic needles due to the concern that solid filiform needles had neither the strength or tactile feedback that hypodermic needles provided and that the solid filiform needle could be deflected by "dense contraction knots".
Active Comparator: Cross Tape Therapy
Cross Tape is a grid-shaped bandage easy aplicacionen different parts of the body that regulates the tension.
Other: Cross Tape Therapy
The tape consists of cross bands or strips mesh cross, nonelastic and without any medication, forming a grid-shaped patch. The cross tape will be applied on trigger points.
- Pain Intensity [ Time Frame: up to Four Weeks ]A 10-point Numerical Pain Scale (0: no pain, 10: maximum pain) assesses the intensity of pain.
- Number of participants with Trigger Points [ Time Frame: up to Four Weeks ]Dry Needly Therapy will be assesses in trigger points on trapezius muscle, supraspinatus muscle, infraspinatus muscle, latissimus dorsi, iliocostalis muscle, multifidus muscles, and quadratus lumbourum muscle.
- Posture and Spinal Mobility [ Time Frame: up to Four Weeks ]Spinal Mouse is a device that, combined with a computer program (PC), assesses the curvatures of the vertebral column without applying harmful radiation. Spinal Mouse checks: spine alignment, measuring segmental and global angles in the sagittal and frontal planes; posture and spinal mobility; and spine functions and performance.
