Trigger points are tight tender spots in a muscle that cause referred pain. Referred pain, is pain felt in an area located away from the trigger point. This is known as a pain pattern. Therapists use these patterns as road maps to find the trigger point responsible for creating the pain. When a trigger point is located pressure is applied to the area followed by a series of stretches to elongate the affected area helping the muscle return to normal function. (When the pressure is applied it is a little painful but the results are worth it).
