Muscle pain can occur when you injure your muscles, or apply repetitive strain on them. The muscles respond by forming trigger points or knots, which can tighten the muscles, and become extremely painful.
When you press on a trigger point, the muscle fibres shorten and cause what doctors call referred pain.
This means that you can have a trigger point in one muscle that makes you feel pain in another area of your body.
Muscles make up approximately forty percent of your body weight, and as such they can have a big impact on your overall health.
Trigger points can be caused by:
- Emotional stress and anxiety
- Bad posture
- Chronic pain
- Strained muscles
- Diseases such as fibromyalgia
- Sports Injury
