About Trigger Point Posts…
Trigger Point Posts have common sections to make them easy to follow and understand:
- How People Describe this Pain Pattern
- How You Activate and Intensify This Pattern
- The Musculoskeletal Anatomy Behind You Pain
- Getting Relief on Your Own
- Therapy Notes for Massage and Bodywork
In some cases, there will also be a section linked to a Very Similar Pain, Different Muscle.
