About Myofascial Pain Syndrome

When an elevated amount of pressure is applied to sensitive areas within the muscles (also referred to as trigger points), the result is often a chronic pain condition called myofascial pain syndrome. While there are multiple causes of this disorder, it is most commonly the result of increased tension or the continuous contraction or movement of a muscle. The symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome pain, which often include aching or throbbing pain, difficulty sleeping, and tender knots in the muscles, may worsen as time goes on and become chronic in nature. The certified pain management specialists at Tricity Pain Associates provide a range of options to effectively address myofascial pain syndrome and minimize its symptoms.

Treatment for myofascial pain syndrome may include a range of solutions but will generally begin with physical therapy or medications. Patients suffering from severe cases of the disorder may benefit from corticosteroid injections or a dry needling technique, which helps relieve muscle tension and alleviates discomfort. Lifestyle improvements, like getting enough sleep, reducing stress, and daily exercise, may also be helpful in increasing comfort and minimizing painful symptoms. Before creating a personalized treatment strategy, our expert physicians will explain your options for care and help you choose the ideal method for your health.
