Trigger point massage – how to release myofascial trigger points by yourself
What exactly are trigger points and what causes them? Trigger points refer to small, painful areas in the connective tissue. Myofascial trigger points, or adhesions and tension, can arise as a result of long periods spent sitting, challenging workouts or improper stresses on the body. Trigger points are often found in the shoulder, hand, foot or back. You'll notice unpleasant or painful tension in your body. But don't worry, a trigger point massage can help to relieve the pain.
