MUSCLE AND MYOFASCIAL PAIN FaceCenterLA - Muscle Pain, Myofascial Pain
Myofascial pain is a chronic and sometimes severe form of pain, affecting the muscles in the face, neck, and back. It may cause stiffness, tightness, tenderness, popping or clicking, limited movement, difficulty chewing, muscle twitches, spasms, weakness, and/or headaches - often severe enough to significantly interfere with everyday life. Bruxism, or grinding of the teeth, and temporomandibular joint disorders may be causes of the pain. However, chronic myofascial pain is a complex problem that requires accurate diagnosis and treatment.
You may be suffering from myofascial pain if you feel pain with trigger or tender points, although those points may not actually be the cause of pain. FCLA uses a multidisciplinary approach with several different medical specialists to precisely diagnose the causes unique to your case and prescribe the most effective treatment.
