Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic form of muscle pain which affects the connective tissue covering the muscles, know as the fascia. Myofascial pain can involve both single muscle or group muscle tissue. 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.
Individuals suffering from Myofascial Pain Syndrome often experience persistent pain which can spread throughout the muscle or worsen. Pain is often experienced through headaches, jaw, neck, back, arm, leg and even pelvic pain.
There are a number of non-invasive and surgical treatment options for treating Myofascial Pain Syndrome, such as physical therapy, trigger point injection, medication and even laser spine surgery. For laser spine surgery in New York, consult with a pain management specialist.
