Myofascial Trigger Point
Finding the cause of pain
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 pain seventy percent of the time and are at least a part of nearly every pain problem.
Conditions caused by trigger points
Trigger Points cause headaches, neck and jaw pain, low back pain, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome. They are the source of the pain in such joints as the shoulder, wrist, knee and ankle that is so often mistaken for arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis or sinusitis, nausea, heartburn, false heart pain, heart arrhythmia, genital pain and numbness in the hands and feet. Even fibromyalgia may have its beginnings with trigger points.
