Pain Management and Myofascial Trigger Point Release

Myofascial trigger points are hypersensitive areas of the body which keep a part of the muscle or surrounding soft tissues contracted. Trigger points can cause a person pain, tingling, burning, weakness and restricted motion. The term “myofascial” is the combination of two Latin words, ‘myo’ which means muscle and ‘fascia’ for connective tissue in and around the muscle.

Myofascial trigger points are hypersensitive areas of the body which keep a part of the muscle or surrounding soft tissues contracted. Trigger points can cause a person pain, tingling, burning, weakness and restricted motion.

Dr. Janet Travell discovered when muscles are traumatized through accidents, sports, occupation or disease, myofascial trigger points are formed in the muscles.

Dr. Travels’ research demonstrated that each muscle has a specific pattern of referred pain. Which in fact means, a myofascial trigger point is capable of producing pain (or triggering pain) in a predictable pattern; both where it is located and in another area of the body.

Studies have shown that as many as 93% of all pain patients seeking medical intervention for pain presented with myofascial trigger points. Therefore the Travel Roller can be used as a great pain management tool.
