- Myofascial trigger points can frequently be overlooked as a source of pain. A trigger point is an overexerted or fatigued group of muscle fibers.
- Our body becomes sensitized as these trigger points are present, and soon everyday activities that should not be painful become painful. Pain can even be perceived at rest.
