Trigger points are pressure points that have developed within the muscle. They are bands of muscles that have become tight and create a tender area in a muscle that causes generalized musculoskeletal pain when overstimulated.
When most people talk about having a “knot” in their neck or back, this is what they are referring to. These trigger points, or knots, can result in pain in the direct area, referred pain, muscle weakness, and restricted movement and flexibility of the spine and/or extremities.
