Myofascial Pain Treatment
The connective tissue that covers and separates muscles is called fascia. Certain injuries and conditions can irritate and inflame fascia, resulting in localized muscle pain, or myofascial pain syndrome. Our team at CLEAR Wellness Group can diagnose fascia inflammation and offer effective myofascial pain syndrome treatment at our facility in Chicago.
Those with myofascial pain syndrome experience localized pain and discomfort within a muscle group. This can feel like a deep muscle ache that tends to worsen over time. Most muscle strains or injuries feel better after a few days of rest. Many people with myofascial pain syndrome have trigger points or knotted muscles. Myofascial pain can occur in any muscle group, but it is common in the muscles supporting the back and spine.
Causes of Myofascial Pain
There are a variety of conditions that can trigger fascia inflammation and result in myofascial pain syndrome. Some common causes of myofascial pain syndrome include:
- Muscle strains or injuries
- Stress or anxiety that cause muscle tension
- Repeated motions
- Restricted movement
- Irritation from anatomical issues – spinal injuries or conditions
Myofascial pain syndrome can result in acute or chronic pain and discomfort. Those with this condition may have limited mobility or trouble sleeping due to consistent muscle pain. At CLEAR Wellness Group, we offer interventional pain treatments that reduce inflammation and relax contracting muscles to relieve pain. We use a multidisciplinary approach to treat the cause of myofascial pain, which can include trigger point injections, physical therapy and other treatment options.
