A chronic condition that causes pain of the musculoskeletal system is known as myofascial pain syndrome, or MPS.
Individuals suffering from MPS may experience deep pain in localized areas, which can get worse if the muscle is stretched or strained. Painful knots, weakness, stiffness and a reduced range of motion are also associated with myofascial pain syndrome.
There are several causes and risk factors, such as muscle overuse, injury or even stress. Trigger points usually come about after repetitive activities like heavy lifting or computer work.
Poor posture, unhealthy diets, lack of exercise and lack of sleep are just some of the contributing factors. Some patients may even experience throbbing pain at night and during meals, making it difficult to open the mouth.
Our team of professionals can provide treatment to address overworked muscles of the face and jaw. Physical therapy, bite guards, relaxation techniques and medication are some approaches to our therapy protocol.
