ABOUT TRIGGER POINT MYOTHERAPY
Fascia and trigger points combine to cause pain.
The term “myofascial” is the combination of two Latin words: ‘myo’ which means muscle, and ‘fascia’ which is the connective tissue in and around the muscle. Myofascial trigger points (also called contraction knots) are hypersensitive segments of a muscle fiber called a sarcomere which keeps a portion of the muscle or surrounding soft tissues contracted.
Trigger points can cause pain, tingling, burning, weakness, and restricted motion.
