Myofascial Pain

Causes of myofascial with treatment at Naas Physio Clinic








What is Myofascial Pain?

Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a musculoskeletal pain syndrome associated with multiple painful sites. The pain is induced by fascial constrictions and areas of hyperirritable muscle known as trigger points. Generally, a deep aching sensation will be present in involved areas such as the back of the shoulder. Trigger points can cause local or referred pain and the location of symptoms may vary somewhat over time. Myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia share common characteristics but are separate conditions. Fibromyalgia is a widespread condition effecting multiple body sites; whereas, myofascial pain is a more localised phenomenon.

Causes of Myofascial Pain

Myofascial pain commonly occurs in people who sit at a desk for prolonged periods of time. Chronic poor posture can give rise to a gradual process of adaptation in muscles that lead to myofascial pain. Manual treatment methods such as myofascial trigger point release can alleviate symptoms and is an effective treatment when applied alongside a thorough postural assessment to identify possible causes of muscle overload. Specific strengthening & stretching exercises may be used to address poor posture and bring about long-term relief. Myofascial restrictions are often present in multiple areas and are reflective of biomechanics flaws & tissue stress
