What Is Fascia?
Fascia is a type of connective tissue located throughout your body. This tissue provides support and stability to your muscles and organs. It also reduces friction between these structures.
The fascia surrounding your muscles is called myofascial tissue. This tissue can become tight and restricted due to injury, repetitive motions, or poor posture. When the myofascial tissue is closed, it can cause muscle and joint pain.
What Causes Myofascial Pain Syndrome?
Trigger points in the myofascial tissue cause myofascial pain syndrome. Trigger points are tiny knots that form when the muscle fibers become entangled. These knots can cause pain in the muscles and joints. Multiple different factors can cause specific trigger points, including:
- Repetitive motions
- Poor posture
If you experience tender or aching muscles anywhere in your body, the specific cause can be challenging to diagnose. Our chiropractor can help.
Symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome
The symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome vary depending on the location of the trigger points. However, common symptoms include:
- Muscle pain
- Tender or aching joints
- Sleep problems
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you must see our chiropractor for an evaluation. Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic condition that can worsen over time if left untreated.
Combine Chiropractic Care with Myofascial Release
At DePietro Chiropractic and Wellness, we provide chiropractic care and myofascial release to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Chiropractic care is a hands-on approach to healthcare that focuses on treating the musculoskeletal system.
Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy that uses gentle pressure to release the trigger points in the myofascial tissue. This therapy can help relieve muscle pain, restore range of motion, and improve overall function.
