Muscle Pain Physical Therapy Treatment

Jay is the best physical therapist in town! I had a couple car accidents that messed up my neck and shoulder and gave me chronic migraines. He was able to get me back on track. I was able to lift heavy and do Crossfit pain free in a very short amount of time, as well as significantly reducing my migraines. I highly recommend him and send all of my clients to him. You will not be disappointed his team is great, very educated and everyone at the clinic knows what they are doing. Nikki makes scheduling easy, is always positive and very helpful with all the physical therapy movements. You will not be disappointed and will have a faster recovery when you see Jay!

I think you guys are terrific and would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for fixing my neck and shoulder problems!

Therapydia staff did a great job not only getting me back on track fast, but they explained the problems I was having and gave me the information and knowledge I needed to avoid issues in the future. I would highly reccomend their services especially to people participating in high intensity work outs like crossfit.

What Causes Muscle Pain?

Myofascial pain syndrome or muscle pain occurs when your body’s soft tissues become inflamed. When there is damage to your fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds your muscles, a trigger point is created. A trigger point is commonly described as “knot-like” and is made up of a small section of contracted muscle. This trigger point can lead to pain felt in other areas outside of the specific point, also known as referred pain.

Myofascial pain develops from an injury or strain to your muscle, ligament or tendons. Repetitive motions used at work or during an activity can lead to overuse injuries and myofascial pain. Myofascial pain can also occur due to inactivity of a muscle caused by a brace, sling or cast. To holistically address muscle pain, you need to understand what your current movement patterns are, identify weaknesses in your musculature and address any trigger points that may have been built up.

Signs & Symptoms

    Unlike muscle soreness after an activity, pain associated with trigger points continues for a longer period or can get worse.

    With myofascial muscle pain, you may feel the following:

    • Limitations in cervical range of motion with pain
    • A knot in the muscle
    • Deep, aching pain
    • Muscle tenderness
    • Muscle spasms

Why PT?

    Your physical therapist will help you pinpoint the source of your muscle pain and develop a custom treatment program based on your needs and goals. At Therapydia, we utilize hands-on techniques such as myofascial release to eliminate pain and restore motion. By applying gentle sustained pressure, your physical therapist can accurately detect fascial restrictions and facilitate release of the fascia. Your treatment could include a combination of methods that address muscular pain:

    • Manual therapy: Hands-on techniques to remove trigger point restrictions from those muscles to reduce pain and retrain your movement patterns. Unlike foam rolling, manual therapy can get deep inside the muscles to release trigger points.
    • Custom exercises: Strengthening and mobility exercises to develop more efficient movement patterns.
    • Modalities: Depending on how best to manage your specific levels of pain, ice, heat, electrical stimulation or ultrasound may be used to complement your treatment.
