Trigger points in the low back

Trigger points are localised, discrete and hypersensitive spots located within low back muscles. In simple terms, they are sore spots (and nothing more). Low back muscle trigger points have the ability to cause pain locally at their location or cause pain that radiates out.


Muscle tightness and soreness are the main symptoms of trigger points.


The treatment for trigger points (sore muscles) varies depending on where the trigger points are and what symptoms they are causing. Chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments directed at the muscle sore spots is useful. Rehabilitation exercises are most valuable for both tight and sore muscles.
