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.
