Myofascial Pain Syndrome

The definition of myofascial = muscle + fascia (the connective tissue sheath that lies between the skin and muscle and that also planes between muscles). Myofascial Pain Syndrome is commonly known as chronically tight and painful muscles in a specific area with characteristic “trigger points” (knots) in the muscle. These trigger points can either cause localized pain or referred pain to other areas i.e. leg, shoulder, arm, hand etc..
