What Is a Trigger Point?

When you have aches and pains in your back, neck, or shoulders, you might think that the source of the pain is in the area that hurts the most. However, this is not always the case because of something called trigger points. A trigger point is an area of the skeletal muscle that is hyperirritable and prone to knotting, which can cause both localized pain and referred pain in other areas of the body.

It is important to recognize trigger points, because they can direct a physical therapist or chiropractor to the source of your pain, allowing for more effective treatment. If you experience frequent pain due to conditions like myofascial pain syndrome or fibromyalgia, you may be more familiar with trigger points, as trigger point therapy is often an effective measure for pain management in these conditions.
