A muscle is composed of tiny fibres which contract and relax in response to messages from the brain when muscle fibres become injured or over stimulated and they cannot relax and form contraction knots. A trigger point consists of many contraction knots where individual muscle fibres contract and cannot relax. Fibres extending from the trigger point to the muscle attachments shorten and form a tight band. From a tight band, the persistent contraction of muscle fibres compresses blood vessels and decreases their blood supply leading to
