Do you ever get sore from your nape all the way down to the top of your shoulders following strenuous days of desk works? If this has gone on for too long, and you’re starting to notice some knots within ropey bands of muscle, then you may be suffering from myofascial pain syndrome or MPS.
MPS is a medical term used to describe chronic muscle pain, due to inflamed fascia or the protective covering of the muscle - thus, the term myofascial. If you’re frequently accustomed to stooped posture like in desk jobs, your neck and upper back can become really painful and tender because your muscle is continuously tensed and so gets very tight in the long run. Later on, this feeling of pain and tenderness become associated with one or more “trigger points,” and you’ll start to feel a bump or nodule in your muscle. This is where everything gets worse and really be annoying.
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 develop within the taut bands of the muscles after injuries or overuse. Compression of these hyperirritable spots results in jump sign, local tenderness, local twitch response and referred pain.
One of the best ways to deal with muscle knots is through deep tissue massage. With massage tools like the Recovapro massage gun, you can relax the taut bands and break up the tension that builds up in the muscle and fascia, so you can treat MPS even before trigger points start to develop.
