Most people will experience some form of muscle pain in their life. Chronic myofascial pain is a form of pain generated from tender points within our muscles. These are often referred to as trigger points. The pain can limit movement and be referred to other regions of the body producing a variety of other confusing symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, knee pain and shooting pain.
