@louiza Hello, Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder. In this condition, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles causes pain in the muscle and sometimes in seemingly unrelated parts of your body. This syndrome typically occurs after a muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions. Sensitive areas of tight muscle fibers can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse. These sensitive areas are called trigger points. A trigger point in a muscle can cause strain and pain throughout the muscle. When the pain persists it is called myofascial pain syndrome. MPS is a chronic condition that affects the fascia, the connective tissue that covers the muscles. It may involve either a single muscle or a muscle group. Myofascial pain syndrome is caused by a stimulus, such as muscle tightness, that sets off trigger points in your muscles.
