Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Piedmont Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is pleased to offer specialized myofascial pain treatment for our Greenville, Spartanburg & Anderson area patients.

Myofascial pain syndrome (also called myofascitis) refers to pain originating from muscles that are in spasm. If you put your hand on the skin overlying the spasm, you can feel a ropy band underneath. The muscles are in the shortened position, but no work is being done. It is like a car engine that is on, but is seized. The lack of any real work being done by the muscle is what distinguishes it from a cramp. Myofascial pain is often a cause of neck and low back sprains.

When is it More Than a Pain in the Neck?

Each year, patients in the Greenville, Spartanburg & Anderson areas suffer from episodes of acute or persistent neck and shoulder pain as a result of injury, strain, overuse, or aging. While it is usually self-limited, in order to prevent possible permanent damage, if it persists for more than a couple of days it should not be ignored.

Two Types of Neck Pain

There are two distinct types of cervical neck pain. The first type often involves a dull, achy pain in the neck that may radiate down into the shoulders and arms. There can be burning sensations as well. Sometimes this kind of pain presents in only the arm or hand. Because this type of “pain” is not felt in the neck itself, it is easily misdiagnosed. While this first type of neck pain is the most common and can require concentrated effort to fix it is rarely an emergency.
