Advanced MMC, Inc Explains What is Myofascial Pain Syndrome
MPS affects 85% of the general population. Majority may have at some point experienced the discomfort associated with muscle tension. However, Dr. Delzell explains that for some, it can become worse.
MPS is a very common condition, but for some, the effects can persist, becoming worse over time. Fortunately, according to Dr. Delzell, it is a condition that can be treated. There are a wide variety of treatment options that require an experienced doctor to start with diagnosing the issue accurately.
Dr. Delzell is one of the leading experts at Advanced MMC, Inc, and describes MPS as a chronic condition affecting the musculoskeletal system. Commonly called muscle pain, it mainly affects the fascia, which is the connective tissue covering the muscles. Generally, the cause is scar tissue from a micro-injury that forms ropey bands of taut muscle tissue, called trigger points.
When activated, either during strenuous activity or anything that directly targets this point, it results in irritation. The overlying fascia contains nerves that have neural pathways directly altered by anatomy and biomechanics because of the micro-injuries that exacerbate pain sensations. The pain can also radiate to other body parts via nerve pathways, called referred pain.

“Just about everyone has and will experience muscular pain throughout their lives. It is worth noting that not everyone with trigger points requires treatment for MPS. However, if you suspect MPS or the pain refuses to go away , despite massages and rest, then make an appointment to see your doctor.” Said Dr. Delzell, one of the leading specialists at Advanced MMC.
She added, “Seeing an experienced doctor is important because MPS can often be misdiagnosed as Fibromyalgia or vice versa. While these two are chronic conditions, MPS affects a particular part of the body, while Fibromyalgia causes tenderness throughout the body. Seeing an experienced doctor is the only way to avoid a misdiagnosis and receive effective treatment.”
