Interesting Myofascial Trigger Point Quote

For all of those who are into exercise(like we are too) you may want to consider the following quote……

“You cannot strengthen a muscle that has a trigger point, because the muscle is already physiologically contracted. Too many physical therapists see a weakened muscle and immediately attempt to strengthen it without testing for the presence of trigger points. Attempts at strengthening a muscle with trigger points will only cause the trigger points to worsen…”
