What is Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS)?  Do you suffer from MPS?

The myofascial pain syndrome, or MPS, is a musculoskeletal pain characterized by a local pain and that is defined as a functional disorder, painful and reversible of the musculoskeletal. Sometimes it is referred as local fibromyalgia.

To determine whether you suffer from myofascial pain syndrome, you must have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • headache
  • pain behind the eyes
  • neck, shoulder and/or back pain
  • numbness in the fingers and/or arms
  • facial pain
  • swallowing difficulties
  • inexplicably mobile teeth
  • limitations in the opening of your jaw or locking jaw
  • ear pain, buzzing sound in your ears
  • clicking jaw or crepitation in the mandibulary joint
  • pain or sensitivity in the joint area

Who suffers from myofascial pain syndrome?

Anyone can suffer from MPS.
However, this syndrome is more likely to affect women between the ages of 19 and 40.

What happens if the MPS is not treated?

It’s difficult to predict:  The symptoms can get worse, or simply disappear.

What causes MPS?

In the same manner as a degenerative chronic disease, many factors can contribute to MPS while being affected by it:  emotional, structural, and biochemical factors.

Finally, certain living habits can worsen MPS, e.g. poor posture, stress, fatigue, foods and beverages, and even chewing gum.
