Myofascial Pain

Myofascial pain is a chronic condition that affects the fascia, or connective tissue that covers the muscles. Myofascial pain typically presents as a deep aching pain due to inflammation in the body's soft tissues. It can involve either a single muscle, or a muscle group. It is presumed that an injury or overuse to a muscle/muscle group may lead to the development of a trigger point, which in turn can cause pain in other areas. This is known as referred pain. Myofascial pain can be made worse with activity or stress.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, our goal at Pacific Pain Medicine Consultants is to provide patient’s with quality pain management treatment while still optimizing the health and safety of our patients, providers, and staff.

We are providing telemedicine visits for new and established patients. Patients with severe pain that warrant more urgent treatment with injections will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We will need to evaluate the patient’s age, medical comorbidities, and risk factors as well as potential symptoms of respiratory infection in making a determination. Elective pain procedures and injections are deferred at this time in order to minimize the potential spread of the coronavirus and to ration personal protect equipment so it may be available where it is most critically needed.
