Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain condition that can cause extreme discomfort and limit mobility. Myofascial refers to the muscles and fascia (connective tissue) in a muscle group that can be affected by injury or inflammation. Those with myofascial pain syndrome, or MPS, can experience localized pain in the muscle group and referred pain in other areas, usually caused by trigger points. The medical team at Hanowell Spine Clinic offers comprehensive myofascial pain syndrome treatment plans for patients at our clinic in Covington, GA.

Myofascial pain syndrome can be caused by a wide variety of factors. Most commonly, an injury, surgery or repetitive strain on a muscle group can cause tightened muscles and inflammation. Those with fibromyalgia often experience MPS, and it can also be caused by inactivity, spinal disc injuries or fatigue conditions. Medical conditions that affect the stomach or heart can trigger MPS. Whatever the cause, myofascial pain syndrome treatment may offer relief for those with this chronic pain condition.

Treatments Options for MPS

With MPS, it is important to create a treatment plan that is personalized to the patient’s symptoms. Each patient experiences different symptoms with their condition and needs a personalized approach to find relief. Physical therapy, myofascial release therapy and massage are common treatments that can help with pain management. Another effective option is trigger point injections that relax knotted muscles and relieve referred nerve pain. Treating the source of the problem, like a herniated spinal disc, can also relieve MPS. Finding the right combination of myofascial pain syndrome treatments helps those with this condition manage pain and restore their quality of life.

Patient Reviews

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Mike D.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
