Envision Glinda the Good Witch being transported in her bubble to the Land of Oz. Erin Waychoff, DC, owner of Pain Stop North Phoenix, says being protectively surrounded and lifted that way through life – without the stress of work or effects of emotion – is probably the only sure-fire way to avoid trigger points, or painful, small contraction knots in muscles.
There are about 400 muscles within the human body, together making up approximately half of your weight. Trigger points can arise within any of them. They come in two basic varieties: active and latent. An active trigger point is associated with excruciating pain. A latent trigger point, on the other hand, reduces range of motion and can result in structural misalignment.
