What is Myofascial Pain Syndrome?

Myofascial Pain Syndrome is a chronic pain condition that is caused by damage to the fascia. The fascia are the soft, stretchy connective tissue that surround muscles, organs and other structures inside the body. Myofascial Pain Syndrome can involve both single muscle and group muscle tissues, causing chronic pain in muscles throughout the body, especially in the neck and the jaw.

What are the symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome?

Pain and inflammation in the body’s soft tissues and pain in sensitive areas in the muscles, known as trigger points, are symptoms caused by Myofascial Pain Syndrome. Other symptoms may include:

What are Trigger Points?

People who suffer with Myofascial Pain Syndrome often develop painful bumps under the skin called trigger points. These small, tight knots can form at the point where the fascia comes into contact with muscle tissue. Trigger points can be felt beneath the skin and when pressed, cause pain and twitching in the underlying muscle.
