It can be difficult to work out a trigger point by yourself- depending on where it is. For example if the trigger point is in your rhomboid muscle it might be hard to reach because it is between the shoulder blade. There is a great pain relief product called the theracane which can help you reach tender trigger points and areas of tightness. In addition use heat/ice to give you pain relief after working on the muscle spasm.

Kirk, you mentioned numb fingers and limited range of motion. I would reccomend that you see your PCP or chiropractor as you may need to get a cervical mri to see what else is going on. -nj
