About Myofascial Pain Syndrome
Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels and Seguin, TX specializes in treating a wide variety of pain disorders, including myofascial pain syndrome (MPS). This condition causes severe pain in the trigger points of the muscles when pressure is placed on these sensitive areas. It can also produce pain in unrelated areas of the body, resulting in limited mobility and muscle function. MPS is believed to be caused by repetitive movements that strain the muscles and repeated injuries. This condition generally occurs in patients over the age of 35 or those who have occupations that are labor-intensive. Common symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome include tender muscle knots, stiffness, constant fatigue, and muscle spasms. If you are experiencing persistent muscle pain, it may be time to schedule an appointment with a medical professional to discuss your treatment options.

"I cannot begin to explain how much Dr. V as helped me over the last year. I came to him at the recommendation of my rheumatologist due to an undiagnosed pain in my lower back. The pain was so intense I was unable to find any comfortable position much less sleep. From my first visit, I realized Dr. V was different. He spent time with me, listened to me, and was genuinely concerned about the ulceration (later diagnosed as lupus panniculitis) on my lower back and the immense pain it was causing. He was able to provide me with immediate relief. After my surgery, his office worked to get me in as soon as possible to adjust my medication. When Dr. V saw me hunched over, barely able to move, and walking with a walker, he told me he would take care of me, and he did. He adjusted my medication, and I was able to return to work when the surgeon released me. Besides his medical knowledge, Dr. V always made me feel that he cared about me as a person not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. V to anyone who is living with pain and wants their life back."- M.H. / Google / Dec 26, 2020
