Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS), a syndrome involving local and referred pain caused by active Trigger Points (TrPs), is a primary diagnosis in the majority of patients evaluated in regional pain centers. Delay in the diagnosis of MPS is often accompanied by a delay in the initiation of evidence based treatments. An integrative multidisciplinary treatment approach that also incorporates patient self-management is often successful at reducing chronic pain from MPS.
