One of the many factors that may contribute to the pain and dysfunction of a muscle is the development of trigger points within it. A trigger point may be defined as a hyperirritable locus within a taut band of skeletal muscle, located in the muscular tissue and/or its associated fascia. Myofascial trigger points – that is those that are located in muscle (generally, skeletal muscle) or muscle fascia – are most prevalent and symptomatic; however, trigger points can also be present in cutaneous, ligamentous, periosteal, and non muscular fascial tissues as well.

A myofascial trigger point is that area, that point, along taut muscular band in which the tenderness reaches its maximum. The patient will feel the greatest degree of sensitivity at the trigger point; the practitioner will feel that area to have the greatest resistance to palpitation (that is, it will feel like the hardest are on the taut band). A trigger point is painful upon compression. It can give rise to referred pain, tenderness, reduction of local vascular activity, and skin temperature changes.

Health fund receipt massage cairns – A trigger point may begin with muscular strain or overuse that becomes the site of sensitized nerves, increased cellular metabolism, and decreased circulation. From an anatomic perspective, areas that tend to develop trigger points are generally areas in which increased mechanical strain or impaired circulation are likely to develop due to physical activities or postural stresses.

Trigger points most frequently develop in the sternocleidomastoid, upper trapezius, levator scapulae, infraspinatus, thoracolumbar paraspinals, quadratus lumborum, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus; however, trigger points can develop within any fascicle in any mucsle of the body.

Trigger points can be latent or active. Both will cause stiffness and weakness of the affected muscle and restrict the muscle’s full range of movement. (Stiffness is most notable after periods of inactivity, while weakness tends to be more variable.) Both active and latent trigger points are tender to palpitation.

Health fund receipt massage cairns – Active trigger points are differentiated from latent trigger points in that they produce pain. Therefore, active trigger points are generally considered to be of greater clinical significance. This pain tends to be referred away from the affected muscle in a characteristic pain pattern; the relationship between an active trigger point and its characteristic pain pattern has been extensively researched by Travell and Simons. There may be an abrupt onset of pain or dysfunction, whereby a specific incident is noted to be the cause of myofascial difficulty, or the onset may be gradual, the muscle having been overloaded for period of time. Myofascial pain may be characterized as a steady, deep, dull and aching.

HCF remedial massage cairns – Pain varies in intensity from low-grade to quite severe, and it may occur at rest or in motion.

Tenderness is response to palpitation can occur within the pain pattern of a trigger point even if pain is not experienced in the points referral zone. This tenderness will dissipate after the trigger point is reduced. Pain or tenderness will generally increase with use of the muscle, stretching of the muscle, direct pressure to the trigger point, shortening of the muscel for an extended period of time, sustained repetitive contraction of the muscle, cold or damp weather, viral infections, and stress. Symptoms will decrease after short periods of light activity followed by rest, and slow, steady, passive stretching of the muscle, especially with the application of moist heat to the muscle.

Health fund receipt massage cairns – AHM remedial massage cairns helps with Latent trigger points are far more frequent than active trigger points and are commonly found in patterns of muscular constriction that frequently define a person’s “normal” posture. Latent trigger points can become active through a number of circumstances. Activation of a trigger point can occur directly through acute overload of a particular muscle, chronic overload or overwork fatigue caused by excessive or repetitive actions or sustained contraction of the muscle, trauma to the muscle, or compression or chilling of the muscle.

Indirect activation can occur as a result of leaving a muscle in a shortened position for periods of time, as in sleeping or sitting for extended periods or holding a phone between the ear and the shoulder. Indirect activation can also result from visceral disease, viral disease, emotional stresses, or the chronic muscular strain of trying to stabilise arthritic joints, or if the latent trigger points lie within the pain pattern produced by other, active trigger points. Generally the degree of conditioning of the muscle is the factor that most defines whether a latent trigger point will become active.

The greater the degree of muscle conditioning, the lower the susceptibility to trigger point activation. However while an active trigger point witll frequently revert to latency with sufficient rest, trigger points will not be fully reduced without clinical intervention.
