Trigger Points
A trigger point is a tight and tender spot in a muscle that refers or communicates pain to other areas of the body. Trigger points are found on the muscles inside our bodies and can act as "receivers" collecting and holding the stresses and strains of daily living. Un-released trigger points can result in pain and emotional discomfort, over time they are the leading cause of chronic pain complaints.

Trigger points can exist in two states, either active or latent (inactive). Active trigger points are those which cause the discomfort you feel today. Latent trigger points wait silently in the muscle for a future stress to activate them.

Common characteristics of un-released trigger points are increased muscle tension and muscle shortening. Increased muscle tension is the primary side-effect of trigger points and pain is the most common secondary effect.

Trigger points can also present themselves as referred patterns of sensation such as sharp pain, dull ache, tingling, pins and needles, hot or cold, as well they can create symptoms such as nausea, ear ache, equilibrium disturbance or blurred vision.

Active trigger points keep the muscles tight, restricting blood flow and compressing nerves, which perpetuates a negative type of muscle memory or the "pain-spasm-pain" cycle in the muscles. Untreated trigger points result in decreased flexibility which limits physical movement and encourages poor postural patterns. Trigger points need to be stimulated and encouraged to release tension and tightness.

If trigger points are not routinely treated, you can experience lingering pain even after an injury has healed. This fact explains why headaches, neck pain, and back pain can keep returning despite expensive and time consuming medical or alternative health therapies.
