Myofascial Trigger Points in chronic muscle pain: Causes and Treatment

Dr Jonathan Kuttner, a pain specialist discusses trigger point pain in this video.
Many people have experienced this trigger point pain at some time in their life and many, like those with fibromyalgia and other muscle disorders such as myositis, live with this pain everyday.
Trigger points are caused by a muscle reflex that misfires. This video shows how to identify trigger points on yourself and shows how they radiate in your body to other areas.
Personally I have found great success in relaxing my muscles and reducing pain and highly recommend this myofascial pain release.

  2. Very interesting, thanks so much for posting. I love learning about the biology of things but oh boy does doing what he did in the video sore! I don't think I could even describe what I did as "pinching" and it really hurt. No wonder I was in agony after the rheumatologist was prodding around trigger points! What I found interesting also was the point he made about the gluteus muscle and the trigger point there making pain look like sciatica when it isn't. I have real bother with pain that starts in my butt and runs down my leg. The dr says it's sciatica because I hurt my back years ago. However, I pulled muscles in the left side of my back and yes it can play up now and again. But it's the right side where I get the pain that runs down my leg. Interesting stuff.

  4. Thanks for the video. I have been getting massages as part of my physical therapy, and those trigger points almost kill me when they work on them. They insist it will get better eventually, but 3 days a week it feels like torture!
    Gentle Hugs,

    1. Bonnie, I think personally that 3 days a week is too much - the two different therapsist who I have been to did the treatment once a week.
