Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS)

Myofascial Pain Syndrome is a chronic muscle pain and inflammation condition that affects the body’s soft tissues.

How & Why Does MPS Develop?
Myofascial Pain Syndrome often develops from injury or strain on a specific muscle or muscle group, tendon, or ligament. In addition, repetitive motion, lack of motion, and injury to muscle fibers can also be causes of Myofascial Pain Syndrome. At times, a person may experience pain in an area that isn’t the generator of the pain. When injured, fascia may tighten and contract putting painful pressure on nerves, muscles, bones, or organs.
