Myofascial Damage

Myofascial Damage

Myofascial pain is a chronic pain disorder, which is caused by damage or injury to the fascia, the tough connective tissue layer that covers the muscles. If this tissue is injured, it may tighten and contract thereby exerting painful pressure on the muscles, nerves, bones or organs. An established multispecialty center in Brooklyn, New York, HealthQuest offers effective treatment for this painful condition. Our pain management experts diagnose the condition accurately and provide the appropriate treatment.

In myofascial pain syndrome, the “trigger point” or the area where the injury occurs becomes very sensitive and generates pain not only at the injury site, but also in other parts of the body. This condition is typically brought on by repetitive motions used in jobs/hobbies or by muscle tension associated with stress.

Some of the common symptoms are:

  • Numbness
  • Headache
  • Low back pain
  • Jaw pain
  • Arm and leg pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Disturbed sleep
  • General fatigue, anxiety or mood disturbances
  • Depression

The pain you experience may worsen if not addressed at the right time.
