Myofascial Trigger Points

Muscle Knots

What exactly are muscle knots?

When you say that you have “muscle knots,” you are talking about myofascial trigger points. There are no actual knots involved, of course.

A trigger point (TrP) is a small patch of tightly contracted muscle, an isolated spasm affecting just a small patch of muscle tissue (not a whole-muscle spasm like a “charlie horse” or cramp10).

Myofascial Trigger PointsThat small patch of knotted muscle cuts off its own blood supply, which irritates it even more — a vicious cycle called “metabolic crisis.”

Myofascial trigger points are a very common problem that can lead to severe pain and other puzzling symptoms, which are often misdiagnosed.

Put simply, myofascial trigger points are painful, hyper-irritable areas in muscles that cause pain, stiffness, limited range of motion and sometimes other symptoms.

They can refer pain to other parts of the body – sometimes very far from their original location. As a result they are often misdiagnosed.

Trigger points are always created in certain places in a muscle and always refer pain to the same areas. However, because there are hundreds of muscles in the body, there are hundreds of possible locations for trigger points.

Also, trigger points in one muscle tend to create trigger points in other nearby muscles.

Myofascial trigger points are classified as either active or latent (inactive). Latent ones do not cause pain, but can still reduce range of motion.

An active trigger point is easy to recognize by pressing on it, because it feels very painful. Often it is also palpable as a small “knot”.

I am trained in the detection and treatment of Trigger Points – and when I get them to release, the result is immediate.

If you are feeling restricted in your movement, or you regularly train or visit the gym, booking in for a Myofascial Trigger Point treatment can return your body to complete physical health. Call to make your booking today.
