Chronic Pain FAQs

  1. What are other symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome?

    In addition to muscle pain and trigger points, there may be decreased local mobility and muscle weakness (motor phenomena), numbness and tingling (sensory phenomena). Limited range of motion, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and anxiety or depression, may be present in chronic myofascial pain.

  2. How to identify muscle pain or myofascial pain syndrome?

    Myofascial pain syndrome can be evaluated by the presence of a painful point on manual palpation over an area of tense muscle, which also causes pain perceived from a distance (referred pain). The perception of a muscle contraction on local palpation is common, as well as an involuntary jump reaction to the pain provoked.
