What are these taut bands of muscles that hurt when I press them?

Adhesions

Adhesions are scar tissues that limit joint range, or restrict independent movement of muscle layers. Our bodies try to compensate for tissue problems by forming trigger points in those areas, which amplify the amount of pain we feel. An adhesion is really a band of scar tissue that binds together our internal organs, or around other connective tissues, by causing them to stick to one another.
