Myofascial trigger points
are hyper-irritable areas
within muscle or fascia that
refer pain to other areas in
predictable patterns
Knowing the referred pain
patterns can be helpful,
as it can assist in locating the
origin of the pain and
relieving the pain by applying
pressure to the trigger point
• Healthy muscle tissue does
not contain trigger points
• Myofascial pain can be
caused by a variety of factors
such as stress, fatigue,
immobility or poor nutrition
• In addition to pain, trigger
points may cause dizziness,
sweating, vasoconstriction,
and muscle stiffness and
weaknes s • When left
untreated, a chain reaction
may occur, in which
secondary (or satellite) trigger
points develop in reference
areas of chronically active
trigger points and give rise to
more pain
• In these figures, the trigger
points are represented by
colored dots, with numbers
used to identify their names
• Each trigger point is
color-coded to match its own
area of symptom referral
• The pain referral areas may
have both light and dark
shades of the trigger point
color • The darker shade
represents the primary area
of symptom referral, while
the lighter shade represents
the secondary area of
symptom referral
Notes: A trigger point and its
corresponding pain pattern is
always found within the same
figure (in some cases, there
are two images per figure)
• Different figures may have
the same colors, but they
do not represent the same
trigger point
