Trigger points are hyperirritable spots in tight bands of muscles that cause discomfort. This discomfort restricts movement and causes muscle weakness as well as referred or radiating pain that spreads to other areas. Symptoms of trigger points may include burning, tingling, aching, sharpness, tightness, pins and needles, aching, dullness, and tenderness. Trigger points can also manifest in a wide range of ailments, including tension headaches, tinnitus, neck pain, temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ), and low back pain. Trigger points can be linked with chronic musculoskeletal disorders but they can also occur from sleeping in an unusual position, reaching or twisting, carrying heavy objects, or even stress.
