Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS)

The danger of not treating muscle pain until it becomes chronic.

Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) refers to a condition where muscles experience prolonged or long-lasting pain and inflammation due to extended periods of muscle use without proper recovery or appropriate treatment. The primary cause often involves ongoing stress on the muscles or overuse of muscles for an extended period. Chronic inflammation can result from these prolonged conditions and may lead to recurring issues that need consistent management.

Common symptoms of chronic muscle strain can include:

  • Intense and persistent pain and inflammation in the affected muscle area.
  • Stiffness and abnormalities in the way the muscle functions.
  • Sensitivity or discomfort when using the affected muscle.

If you are experiencing chronic muscle strain, it's important to consult a medical professional or specialist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. Treating chronic muscle strain may require a systematic and time-consuming approach to ensure proper and effective recovery and resolution of the issue in the long term.
