Knee Pain Trigger Point Chart
Tender trigger points typically develop from lack of stretching or improper stretching and can also be caused from stress/trauma, overexertion, poor conditioning, or overuse of a muscle. Trigger point pain in the knee and upper thigh is commonly caused by:
  • a twisted knee affecting the upper leg muscles
  • demanding sports that put excess stress on the upper leg and muscles around the knee (i.e. dance, climbing, gymnastics, martial arts)
  • starting up a seasonal activity (i.e.skiing, gardening) too quickly without keeping the muscles active throughout the year
  • tight hamstrings causing overstress on the quads and knee
  • one leg shorter than the other
  • sitting for long periods of time
  • repetitive forceful hip flexion (i.e. soccer kicks, jogging, hurdling)
  • a direct hit to the quadriceps
  • repeated bending and straightening (i.e. squats, deep knee bends, jumping)
  • training on a steep slope
