About Myofascial Pain Syndrome
As a chronic pain disorder, myofascial pain syndrome is the result of an increased level of pressure being put on sensitive areas of the muscles (trigger points). A number of factors can lead to the development of this condition; however, it is most often developed by repetitive movement of a muscle or elevated tension in the muscle. If not promptly treated, myofascial pain syndrome can develop into a variety of symptoms, such as throbbing, aching pain, a tender knot in the muscle, trouble sleeping, and chronic pain that can continue to get worse with time. At Tricity Pain Associates, our team of pain management physicians works to accurately diagnose and alleviate the symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome.

Myofascial Pain Treatment
Within your first consultation at Tricity Pain Associates, our pain management team will start by performing a complete evaluation of your existing symptoms and medical history. After you have been accurately diagnosed, we can then talk with you about your available treatment options. In most cases, a combination of prescription medication and physical therapy might be initially suggested as a conservative approach to treatment. When these methods do not offer optimal results, then our team of pain management experts may then recommend corticosteroid injections or a dry needling treatment to diminish pain, decrease inflammation, and release tension in the muscles. Alterations to your lifestyle may also be crucial in helping to alleviate your pain and discomfort.
