I should clarify the fact that if trigger points are the root of your pain, static stretching can actually exacerbate the pain/discomfort. Should they be the issue, I would begin only with myofascial work. Several techniques can be applied to alleviateing (though, sometimes not eliminating) the problems. Some tips on releasing trigger points:
4-6 times per day
8-12 strokes over the trigger point in the same direction (~1-2 seconds each stroke). You can use continuous pressure on them for about 15 seconds, but the pain is less of a problem when using the stroking technique.
If you have many trigger points, Travell and Simmons say that working them all at the same time can result in neausa, so spread it out.
Once the trigger point no longer causes pain, I would suggest you continue myofascial release work, except in a broader spectrum with the foam roll to maintain tissue quality.
