Myofascial Pain Relief Treatments Milwaukee

Myofaical Pain Relief Treatment with Prolotheraphy and Botox InjectionsMyofascial pain syndrome is a regional pain disorder characterized by localized hypersensitive muscles that radiate pain, tenderness and spasm. The affected muscles can cause neck pain, upper back pain and lower back pain and typically only affect one side of the body or one side significantly more than the other.  Pressure on sensitive points in your muscles causes pain in seemingly unrelated parts of your body, a phenomenon known as referred pain. Myofascial pain is very common and is often associated with anxiety, poor posture, repetitive strain injuries, sleep deprivation and traumatic injuries.

Symptoms

    • Acute or chronic onset
    • Local or radiating pain
    • Decreased joint range of motion
    • Sensitivity to stretch
    • Tenderness

Other conditions that can be mistaken for myofascial pain:

  • Chronic pain syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Joint osteoarthritis
  • Psychological disorders
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica
  • Polymyositis
  • Radiculopathy

Dr. Pollack will conduct a thorough clinical evaluation to determine if your pain is generated from myofascial pain syndrome or from other conditions that share similar symptoms. We begin our evaluation of your problem with a complete medical history using detailed information gathering tools followed by a focused physical examination. When a diagnosis is confirmed with specialized tests including blood tests, x-rays, CT, electrodiagnostic (EMG) studies, ultrasonography, or MRI an individualized treatment plan can be given.

Myofascial Pain Syndrome Treatments

Myofascial pain can be treated with combination therapy, which includes medications, physical modalities and prolotherapy and Botox injections. Dr. Pollack specializes particularly in prolotherapy, which is a non-invasive injection therapy treatment option that injects a non-cortisone solution into the area causing pain. This trigger point injection therapy can help manage your myofascial pain and help you get your life back on track.
