Myofascial syndrome (fibromyalgia, muscle pain)
Myofascial pain syndrome (fibromyalgia, muscle pain, myositis) - is the most frequent source of pain occurring in patients during disease related spinal structures in humans. Perhaps no one person who would not come across with muscle pain (fibromyalgia) in their lives.
The most massive and important element of the propulsion systems - skeletal muscles can be in four different states. This is the norm, contracture, weakness, muscle hypertonicity local myofacial (painful muscle sealing equation, myositis).
Manifestation of fibromyalgia (muscle pain) are very diverse in terms of localization and irradiation in one or another part of the body.
Myofascial syndrome (fibromyalgia, muscle pain) diagnosis
Myofascial syndrome or fibromyalgia (muscle pain, myositis) is usually the result of any consumer injury, monotonously repetitive motion or awkward body positions for a long period of time (sedentary work). This is manifested in the form of a painful muscle spasm, is most often cited by patients in the neck or between the shoulder blades, with the transition of unpleasant sensations in the neck or shoulders.
Patients with myofascial syndrome or fibromyalgia (muscle pain, myositis) will complain about the increased pain in the neck and between the shoulder blades with a hand or by turning the head to the side of pain, heaviness in the shoulders, poor sleep, and sometimes headaches.
Investigation of normal muscle is to assess the strength, tone, trophic and range of motion in the joint, with the participation of one muscle or muscle group.
Localization and frequency of fibromyalgia (muscle pain, myositis) can also provide:
- pain (myositis) in the gastrocnemius muscles
- pain (myositis) in other leg muscles (gluteal, pear)
- pain (myositis) in the muscles around the joint
- pain (myositis) in the back muscles
- pain (myositis) in the muscles of the neck
- pain (myositis) in the muscle belly
- pain (myositis) in tension and muscle injury
- pain (myositis) in the muscles of the shoulder
- pain (myositis) in the muscles of the forearm
On palpation revealed pain trigger points (TP) - seals of some fibers of any of the muscles. Hotbed of local painful tightening with inflammation (myositis) in the muscle is acute or chronic.
Myofascial syndrome (fibromyalgia, muscle pain) treatment
Therapeutic effects of a myofascial syndrome or fibromyalgia (muscle pain, myositis) consists of:
- mild muscle manipulation techniques
- moderate doses of drugs (muscle relaxants)
- physiotherapy in the projection of painful and tight muscles (UHF, infrared radiation, SMT)
- local apposition of ice or cryotherapy refrigerants
- injection of anesthetics - lidocaine therapeutic injections or novocaine in painful (trigger) point in the interior of tense muscles
- stretching exercises (hold the patient on their own after finishing the treatment in the outpatient setting)
Infrared radiation is effectively applied in our clinic for a local heated therapy for myofascial syndrome or fibromyalgia (muscle pain, myositis). Infrared lamp emits infrared rays that penetrate deep into the skin over the sore muscles. As a result, heating the skin is warmed, dilates blood vessels, stimulates blood flow to sore muscles in myositis.
Blood brings with it a matter for the recovery and power muscle tissue and removes metabolic products more quickly. This means that the session is using a system of infrared therapy can reduce muscle spasm and muscle pain in myositis.
Soreness in the muscle tissues in myositis may persist for some time, but over time will gradually decrease to background untreated. Since this process involving the soft muscle tissue, usually affects the bones or joints, the required treatment is a conservative method, without the use of surgical intervention on an outpatient basis.
