Myofascial Syndrome: Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis, and Treatment

Description of the disease

Myofascial syndrome (or MFS) is a condition characterized by painful nodules in skeletal muscles, called trigger points. These nodules can cause pain, limited movement, and other unpleasant sensations.


  • MFS with widespread trigger points
  • MFS with localized trigger points


  • Painful nodules in muscles
  • Limited movement
  • Painful reaction to pressure on trigger points


Causes of MFS may include excessive physical exertion, injuries, stress, poor posture, and other factors.


The diagnosis of MFS is based on a patient examination, identification of trigger points, and checking the reaction to their pressure.


Treatment of MFS may include massage, physiotherapy, pain medications, botulinum toxin injections, and other methods.


  • Careful physical exertion
  • Maintaining good posture
  • Regular breaks when working on the computer


Treatment of myofascial syndrome may be provided by a neurologist, rheumatologist, or orthopedic traumatologist.
