Myofascial pain is usually caused when a muscle in your body contracts repeatedly, causing it to resonate with other seemingly unrelated areas in your body. This chronic pain can manifest in several ways, though it mostly causes muscle tension, muscle knots, or muscle weakness in the body.
Because of the different possible causes and areas for myofascial pain, Metro Pain Centers uses laboratory tests and physical examinations to give you a rapid and accurate diagnosis, enabling you to be put on a treatment plan right away. Since this is a condition that can get significantly worse if left unattended, we strongly believe in a proactive approach to make sure that any symptoms don't get worse with time.
For treatment, Metro Pain Centers uses traditional treatments like dry needling, massage therapy, and medication to help relieve trigger point pain and relax your muscle fiber. While surgical procedures like trigger point excision can also be an option, we strongly believe in going through the different non-invasive and non-surgical options to relieve you of your pain before going through a drastic procedure.
Metro Pain Centers takes great pride in how we train our world-class specialists and doctors with managing conditions like myofascial pain. Combined with our proactive approach to your treatments, we ensure that your results from myofascial syndrome therapy last for a long time without any harm to your lifestyle or quality of life.

Metro Pain Centers works hard to ensure that we create a safe and welcoming environment for our patients, especially for those that need consistent treatment for myofascial pain.

A: There are at-home remedies like exercise, over-the-counter medications, and massages that you can use to relieve the symptoms of myofascial pain. However, keep in mind that these treatments should only be done with the approval of your doctor or specialist and that they should never be your primary method of treatment. For most cases of myofascial pain, in-clinic appointments are still the best management methods.
A: Because it's a chronic condition that can be caused by a variety of factors, no singular cure is possible for myofascial pain. However, with early detection and consistent treatment, patients can live normal and healthy lives. Even patients who get their treatments late are generally able to bounce back with an improved quality of life.
A: By avoiding repetitive motion and taking care of your muscles (especially if you participate in sports or physically demanding jobs), you can avoid developing myofascial pain. Given that the majority of cases often come from acute injuries or chronic injuries that pile up over time, simply taking care of yourself can help you reduce the risks of experiencing myofascial pain.
Myofascial pain can be caused by anything from an active muscle injury to chronic stress, and it takes expertise and a lifetime commitment to managing properly.
