Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS)

This is a chronic pain condition affecting the muscles. Pressure on sensitive points in the muscles, named trigger points, cause pain in unconnected parts of the body, known as referred pain.

Symptoms of MPS include:

  • Pain that persists or worsens
  • Deep, aching muscle pain
  • Difficulty moving the affected area of the body
  • Sensitive knots in muscles
  • Insomnia due to the pain

The pain level varies from patient to patient. Some merely feel discomfort while others feel intolerable pain.

MPS typically emerges after an individual muscle or a group of muscles have been contracted repeatedly. This may be caused by repetitive movements in the workplace or by muscle tension related to stress.

Although MPS may arise through no fault of another party, it may develop when a person suffers physical trauma due to another party’s negligence in an accident, subsequent to which they develop MPS.

If the condition is not an immediate result of an accident, it may still be attributed to that accident if the development of the disorder can be traced directly back to the accident and the effects of it.
