Myofascial Pain Syndrome
Fascia is the network of connective soft tissue that runs throughout the body. Due to its nature, fascia can sustain various types of damage such as tears and restrictions from impact or overuse.
Please see myofascial release for a fuller explanation of fascia.
Myofascial pain is a collective term given to the common pain symptoms resulting from damage to the fascia. These symptoms may include chronic pain, especially at night, sharp and shooting nerve pains, inflammation, burning pain, tingling, numbness, pins and needles and a general loss of function, eg inability to pick up a coffee cup or pen.
