While people often say they have a knot in their muscle, the muscle fibers are not actually twisted and looped together. These knots are often trigger points, or tiny spasms in your muscles. Some people only have a few, while others have dozens. Some may be inactive, but when they become active, the pain can make it hard to think about anything else. Trigger point therapy can help release those knots and relieve your pain.
While active trigger points definitely make themselves known, they can be tricky little gremlins. You may feel pain at the site of the trigger point, or you might feel it elsewhere. The pain can be scattered almost like buckshot, and the path the pain follows can be unexpected and complicated. Trigger points in low back muscles can cause pain in the hips, thighs, or even in your stomach, while trigger points in neck muscles can send pain shooting up into your head, down your arms, or both. Trigger points can mimic other issues, such as headaches, sinus problems, sciatica, and seemingly unrelated ailments like digestive problems.
The pain of active trigger points can feel sharp, but it can also feel hot, cold, tingly, or numb, amongst other things. But don’t be fooled by inactive or latent trigger points. They aren’t necessarily innocent bystanders. While they may not cause intense pain, then can cause the muscles to feel stiff and sore, and their potential to become active is still there, lying in wait like a coiled snake, ready to strike at any time.
