Myofascial Pain

Myofascial pain is one of the many chronic pain conditions treated at the Indianapolis Center for Pain Management. Our pain management physicians, clinical pain specialists and medical staff have extensive experience treating this serious pain disorder.

Learn About Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Myofascial pain (sometimes called myofascial pain syndrome) is the presence of trigger points (“knots”) or tender, dense, hyper-irritable areas within the muscles. Trigger points can cause pain in the immediate area or can cause referred pain. For example pain from trigger points in the buttock muscles can be felt down into the legs. Trigger points can develop as a result of chronic stress to the tissues, poor posture and body mechanics, poor nutrition or sleep, or trauma. Trigger points also form in the spinal musculature secondary to disc or degenerative spinal pathology.
