February 19, 2018 16:53
Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a condition in which a person experiences chronic muscle pain in a certain area of the body. The pain usually starts (or gets worse) when trigger points are stimulated. The exact cause of MPS is unclear, but there are some factors that are thought to be involved. They include repetitive strain of the affected muscle, prolonged periods of inactivity, mental stress, and anxiety.
Treatment of myofascial pain syndrome may involve pain relievers, physical therapy, massage therapy, relaxation techniques, and other approaches. Symptoms usually improve with treatment, but if the condition is left untreated, it may get worse.
