What is a myofascial trigger point

A myofascial trigger point, also known as a "knot" in the muscle. They develop when muscle fibers tighten and compress the capillaries and nerves that supply them.

 As a result, the muscle is unable to move normally, obtain a fresh blood supply containing oxygen and nutrients, or flush out additional fluids such as pain producing substances or lactic acid.

Trigger points are often formed by the muscle going into spasm to protect a nerve or joint from serious injury. They are common when there is muscle imbalances, weak core stability, or when you increase your training or start a new exercise or sport.
