Spasm of Thoracic Spinal Muscles

Muscles in the thoracic spine become tight and people often refer to them as “knots”. These knots are actually called “trigger points”. Trigger points usually follow a pattern and can be very painful in their active state. Muscles that can be affected in this region include:

  • Lower trapezium Muscle
  • Rhomboid Major/Minor Muscle
  • Latissimus dorsi Muscle
  • Thoracic Erector Spinae Muscle
