Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain condition affecting the musculoskeletal system.

Most people experience muscle pain at some time that typically resolves on its own after a few weeks. But for some people, muscle pain persists.

In people with myofascial pain syndrome, sensitive spots are known as trigger points. These areas develop in the taut, ropey bands of the muscles (the fascia). When pressure is applied to these trigger points there is pain (called referred pain) in a different part of the body.

Symptoms
Common symptoms of MPS include:

🔸deep pain in localized areas of muscles
🔹pain that gets worse when the affected muscle is stretched or strained
🔸muscle pain that gets worse or fails to improve with time
🔹presence of painful knots in muscles that when pressed produce intense localized or referred pain
🔸muscles that are weak, stiff, inflexible, or have reduced range of motion
mood or sleep disturbances
How Can Myofascial Release Help?
Most myofascial release treatments take place during a massage therapy session.

Your therapist will gently massage the myofascia and feel for stiff or tightened areas. Normal myofascia should feel pliable and elastic. The therapist will begin massaging and stretching the areas that feel rigid with light manual pressure. The therapist then aids the tissue and supportive sheath in releasing pressure and tightness. The process is repeated multiple times on the same trigger point and on other trigger points until the therapist feels the tension is fully released.

These areas where the massage therapist is working may not be near where the pain originates or where you feel the pain most prominently. Myofascial release works the broader network of muscles that might be causing your pain. It tries to reduce tension throughout your body by releasing trigger points across a broad section of your muscular system.
