Trigger Point

Myofascial trigger points are tiny knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. the defining symptom of a trigger point is reffered pain; that is trigger points usually send their pain to some other site.

This is the reason conventional treatments of pain so often fail. It’s a mistake to assume that the problem is at the cause of place that hurts! Clinical research has shown that trigger points re the primary cause of painseventy percent of the time and are at least a part of nearly every pain problem.

Trigger Points cause headaches, neck and jaw pain, low back pain, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome. They are the scource of the pain in such joints as the sholder, wrist, knee and ankle that is so often mistaken for arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis or sinusitis, nausea, heartburn, false heart pain, heart arrythmia, genital pain and numbness in the hands and feet. Even fibromyalgia may have its beginnings with trigger points.
