Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Every one of us suffer from some sort of neck and back problem and then get resolved accordingly. But, there are some individuals who are persistent with some unusual pain and aches throughout their lifetime. Then they start to live with it as if there is no treatment or cure for it. We have seen many such patients where they are diagnosed with Myofascial pain syndrome.

Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain condition that affects your muscles & fascia. ‘Myo’ means muscle & ‘fascial’ means fascia. Your fascia is the thin, white connective tissue that is wrapped around every muscle.


  • Tender or sore muscles
  • Deep aching, throbbing, tight, stiff or vice-like
  • Trigger points (a small bump, nodule or knot in the muscle that causes pain when touched & sometimes when it’s not touched)
  • Reduced range of motion in the affected areas
  • Weakness in the affected muscle


  • Poor posture
  • Muscle injury
  • Muscle strain
  • Working in cold environment
  • Muscle weakness/lack of muscle activity
  • Pinched nerve.

When you have such symptoms meet your physician or physical therapist immediately to get fast recovery from this problem.

The latest techniques & modalities which are used to treat such problems are as follows:

  • Myofacial Release Technique (MFR).
  • Shockwave Therapy..
  • Dry Needling technique.
  • Stretching and Ecentric Strengthening exercises.
  • Soft Tissue Release and Muscle Balancing Techniques
