Skeletal muscle makes up roughly half of the human body’s weight, and musculoskeletal pain occurs commonly since muscles can be damaged from the wear and tear of daily activities.

A trigger point is defined as a hyperirritable spot in skeletal muscle that is associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule in a taut band.
