First of all, what are trigger points?
The part of a muscle fibre that contracts is a microscopic unit called a ?sarcomere?. Contraction of your muscles occurs when two parts of the sarcomere join together like interlocked fingers.*Millions of sarcomeres have to contract in your muscles to make even the smallest movement. A trigger point forms when over stimulated sarcomeres are chemically prevented from releasing from their interlocked state.
The defining symptom of a trigger point is ?referred pain?, which unfortunately is a*misleading phenomenon that conventional treatments so*often*fail to diagnose. Research has shown that trigger points are the primary cause of pain 90% of the time and are at least a part of every symptom.*Trigger point therapy can relieve and even fix conditions such as low back pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder, jaw pain,*sciatica, shoulder impingement and more. Symptoms like headaches, migraines, ear aches, sinusitis, nausea, genital pain and numbness in areas like the hands and feet. Even fibromyalgia may have it?s beginnings with myofascial trigger points.
