Chronic muscle pain is a common and often debilitating condition that affects a large proportion of the
population. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, overuse, or underlying medical
conditions, and can significantly impact a person's quality of life.The pathophysiology is complex and its
understanding evolving, and clinical management is difficult, with heterogeneous intervention employed.
While physiotherapy has emerged as a promising treatment option due to its non-invasive nature and
potential to improve function and reduce pain. However, there is a need for further research to better
understand the role of physiotherapy in treating chronic muscle pain and to provide evidence-based
recommendations for its use in clinical practice. This paper aims to review the current literature on the role
of physiotherapy in the treatment of chronic muscle pain and to provide an evidence-based summary of
its effectiveness, optimal type and duration, and factors that may influence its effectiveness. The findings
of this Research can be used to inform clinical practice and improve the management of chronic muscle
pain.there is also some evidence for the use of intervention such as cognitive- behavioural therapy (CBT)
approaches. Evidence for other interventions is more equivocal. In conclusion, identification of subsets of
chronic muscle pain patients may be an important factor in selection an appropriate intervention
