Symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome

If you need help managing the symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can help. The signs and symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome will vary from patient to patient, but may include the following:

•  Deep, aching pain in a specific muscle
•  Pain that persists or worsens over time
•  A knot in the muscle that is tender to the touch
•  Difficulty sleeping or inability to sleep due to the pain

If you are experiencing the symptoms above, please call Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule a consultation with one or our pain specialists. Our practice is different from many others because we limit the number of patients we see everyday. Our lower patient-to-provider ration enables us to give each and every one of our patients the time and attention they need and deserve. During your initial consultation, our physician will take a complete family and medical history, discuss your symptoms, conduct a thorough physical evaluation and order any diagnostic tests that are necessary to pinpoint the source of the problem. Once a diagnosis of Myofascial Pain Syndrome has been made or confirmed, we can then recommend an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to meet your specific needs and goals. Our treatment plans are focused on not only treating current symptoms but also preventing symptoms from reoccurring in the future.

Causes of Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Myofascial Pain Syndrome is caused when sensitive areas of tight muscle fibers form in the muscles. This can occur due to injuries or overuse. These sensitive areas are referred to as “trigger points” and can cause pain and strain throughout the muscle. Typically, Myofascial Pain Syndrome occurs after a muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can occur as a result of repetitive motions used in hobbies, jobs or stress-related muscle tension. Using the most advanced and minimally invasive treatment methods, the physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are able to help patients with Myofascial Pain Syndrome find long-term relief from their chronic pain and other symptoms so they can enjoy an improved quality of life.

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.

Hitting the Funny Bone Isn’t Funny

There is nothing hilarious about whacking your funny bone. In fact, the funny bone is not a bone. It is called that because of the funny – as in hard to describe – feeling you get when that part of the elbow is hit. What you are actually hitting is the ulnar nerve that runs from your neck to your hand. This nerve innervates muscles in the forearm and hand. The end of the nerve has two branches. The little finger and half the ring finger are innervated by these branches.
