Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are tight knots within the muscle fibers that can cause pain in other areas of the body. These muscles fibers become too tight and create tender areas that cause generalized musculoskeletal pain when overused. Trigger points usually result from stress in the muscle fiber due to some type of acute trauma.
Trigger points can limit movement, create muscle weakness, radiating pain, and inflexibility of the spine. If not treated they will limit the recovery of the affected muscle or joint. These trigger points are a result of decreased blood flow to the muscle fibers, which causes scar tissue inside the muscle, not allowing it to move properly.
