About Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder that is caused by an elevated level of pressure that is placed on trigger points (sensitive areas of the muscles). There are several reasons that this condition may occur, but it is typically caused by repetitive movement of a muscle or increased tension in the muscle. When left untreated, myofascial pain syndrome can lead to a number of symptoms, including throbbing, aching pain, a sensitive knot in the muscle, difficulty sleeping, and chronic pain that can worsen over time. Our team of pain management specialists at Tricity Pain Associates works to effectively diagnose and treat the symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome.

Myofascial Pain Treatment

During your initial consultation at Tricity Pain Associates, we will begin by conducting a comprehensive examination of your current symptoms and medical history. Once you have been properly diagnosed, we can explain the various treatment options available. For most patients, medication and physical therapy may be first recommended as the most conservative form of treatment. If these do not prove to be effective long-term, then our pain management team might then suggest corticosteroid injections or a dry needling technique to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and release muscle tension. Lifestyle changes could also be essential in helping to relieve your pain.
