High impact sports can be murder on knee joints. Among all the joints in your body, the knee joint supports the most weight. Add to that the stress and pressure of high impact sports, and you have ripe conditions for knee injury.
Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder in which pressure on sensitive points in the muscles causes pain in seemingly unrelated parts of the body. This referred pain persists or worsens over time instead of lessening. Myofascial pain typically occurs after a muscle has been repetitively contracted. Many jobs, hobbies, and recreational activities use repetitive motions. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, our double board certified Interventional Spine physicians, Interventional Sport physicians, and orthopedic specialists offer Myofascial Injections so that our patients can find relief from myofascial pain syndrome without complicated treatment or surgery. Our number one goal is to help our patients return to a productive, active, and healthy lifestyle.
Specific symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome include deep, aching pain in a muscle. Many people complain that there feels as though a tender knot has developed inside a muscle. Pain from myofascial pain syndrome will persist or worsen, and many people have difficulty sleeping due to their pain.
At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we use a combination of treatments in order to help our patients find relief. We work with each of our patients on an individual basis to devise a treatment plan to help relieve pain based on their specific symptoms. We limit the number of patients that we see each day so that we can provide our patients with a tailored treatment plan to treat current symptoms and to help prevent them from reoccurring in the future.
If you are suffering from myofascial pain syndrome, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today so we can get you on the road to recovery.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Karen had been busy all afternoon making a special dinner. Everything was just about ready and now it was time to set the table. She opened the cabinet and reached up to get two of the fancy china plates reserved for only the most elegant affairs. That was when she felt the pain in her shoulder and the sensation that someone was trying to hold her arm down.
