What are Trigger Points?
Trigger points are localized tender spots in the muscles often detected as

lumps or “knots.” Trigger points form when a muscle is injured, or overly
tense. Chronic inflammation in the muscle and physical/emotional stress
all contribute to “knots” and formation of scar tissue which may be

helped with TPIs (trigger point injection). Trigger points can also form
through time by the process of wear and tear on the muscle. Trigger
points occur when normal, perpendicular muscle fibers get tangled and
distorted out of their uniform pattern. Trigger points are felt as a taut
band of inflamed muscle fiber and are painful when pressed.
