What are Trigger Points?
Trigger Points are described as Hyper irritable bands or “knots in the tissue. Ever heard someone say “Can you squeeze this knot in my shoulder?” Of course. We all know those trigger points. They hurt so good. Don’t you love having your shoulders squeezed? What if I told you these points exist all over your body and they are the cause of joint pain, muscle aches and fatigue. This information has been around for centuries, but we are finally seeing it hit the mainstream. Physical Therapists are adopting Trigger Point Therapies to help with range of motion after surgeries and even to prevent the need for surgery all together. Some Doctors are also treating Trigger Points through injection.
Studies on Trigger Point Therapy and Self-Myofascial release are being published in our medical journals at record rates. Our professional athletes are often the ones on the cutting edge of body work therapies, because they need to get out of pain, stay out of pain and reduce their risk or need for surgeries and get back to training.
Why are they painful?
Trigger points form only in muscle tissue. They form as a local contraction in a small number of muscle fibers in a larger muscle or muscle bundle. These in turn can pull on tendons and ligaments associated with the muscle and cause pain deep within a joint where there are no muscles.
