Myofascial pain syndrome is a medical term used to describe chronic muscle pain and inflammation to the body's soft tissues. Specifically, it affects the fascia or the protective covering of the muscles. It can develop in a single muscle or may involve an entire muscle group.
MPS can develop in the muscles due to injuries, overuse, or even psychological stress.
Myofascial pain presents as muscle pain with specific "trigger points." Although the local or regional muscle pain is the primary symptoms, patients with MPS also can experience fatigue, depression, and behavioral disturbances.
Muscle knots, also known as trigger points, are hard, sensitive areas of tight muscles that form after injuries or overuse. It’s a small patch of tightly contracted muscles, described as micro-cramps. It tightens and contracts even when the muscle is at rest and causes strain and pain throughout the muscle. The persistence of symptoms and its widespread nature lead to myofascial pain syndrome.
In people with MPS, “trigger points” develop in the taut bands of any muscles - the fascia. Direct application of pressure on these hypersensitive spots results in jump sign, local tenderness, local twitch response and referred pain, or the pain which occur in other, more distant parts of the body.
Muscle knots or trigger points result from three muscle overload: acute, sustained and repetitive. These overload cause abnormal release of chemical substances called acetylcholine, which causes localized muscle contraction. The whole process creates tension resulting in muscle knots and evolving to trigger points.
It all starts with a modern recovery tool, like theRecovapro massage gun.
One of the best ways to deal with muscle knots is through deep tissue massage. With trigger point massage tools like the Recovapromassage guns, you can essentially break up the tension that builds up in the muscle and fascia using therapeutic vibration. The power massager changes the way people massage knots due to the incredible power of self-application. With the ability to reach deep into muscles, the Recovapro massage gun can help relieve triggerpoint pain quickly, efficiently, and at a fraction of the price of ongoing treatment with a massage therapist.
