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 just finished lower back pain treatments. For the first time, in a long time, I can sleep in any position without pain or discomfort. Three injection sessions in L4. Very happy with my Pain Doc (how he is listed in my contacts). Side note, the young lady that checked me in each time was super nice."- D.Z. / Healthgrades / Jul 09, 2022
"I was truly impress with the treatment that was received from Dr. Sridhar Vasireddy. I had issues with my hip for over 6 months and was referred to Dr. Vasireddy. My treatment was a hip injection with sedation. Dr. V., was very detailed in explaining the procedure and the steps he would take. He concentrated on giving me the injection to an area was called “the ring”. I highly recommend Dr. Vasireddy. He is an awesome doctor!"- S.B. / Google / Apr 12, 2022

"I was referred to Dr. Vasireddy by the VA. I could walk only with a walker. After reviewing my MRI, he provided a plan of action with a series of injections and radio ablations. I can now walk nearly as well as prior to my incident. He also was able to provide relief for my popping, painful tailbone. I have had this condition for many years and no one has found the cause until I asked Dr. Vasireddy about it. He knew the problem, did some diagnostic test shots, and then radio ablation that really provided me with instant relief! My pain is now at least 90 % relieved! Thank You Dr. Vasireddy and also your very polite and courteous team."- C.M. / Google / Nov 18, 2021
