Trigger points are hypersensitive points within muscles that cause localised and
referred pain. People commonly call trigger poiints “knots in muscles”. Trigger points are created by physical and emotional
stress eg. tearing or straining of muscles or an emotional stress.
Trigger points within the muscles are the one of the major causes of pain in the human body. Myotherapists aim to eliminate trigger points by the use of many of their modalities like soft tissue manipulation, Dry Needling , cupping and many more techniques. Elimination of trigger points will help to increase function and decrease pain.
