Computerized thermography, system with ability to capture the infrared light emissivity of any reflexive surface, is part of the current arsenal of instrumentation in biomechanics. Using this methodology, it is possible to assess the physiology of thermical maintenance through its skin surface representation. The aim of this work is to assess the thermography as the identification method of myofascial trigger points, been chosen the trapezius muscle as study focus since it is one of most affected body regions concerning myofascial syndrome. This syndrome is highly prevalent and historically subdiagnosticated as it requires expert professionals to establish its diagnostic, through physical examination. The participants of this study were gathered as a sample of thirty persons, fifteen men and fifteen woman, ages between twenty three and seventy years (32,5 years in average). The algometry by pressure, highly validated method on previous works, has been used as part of physical examination to confirm the thermography events. The equipment used to collect the thermograms was an infrared camera with digital image processing, with thermical sensitivity for spectral ranges from 7 to 12 micrometers, appropriate for medical diagnostic utilization; the error index for measurement on this equipment is either 2% or 2oC. It has been used a dynamometer, clock type, for the algometry, commercially available for clinical use, which makes it possible to assess the applied pressure to the focal point.
