About the disease
Myofascial pain (muscle pain, muscle pain) – pain syndrome in any muscle. Abbreviations or Rest – Two states of any muscle in the body. When your muscles are OK – they are balanced – have time to rest after the work done. You will eventually experience pain in the muscle that performed an unusually large amount of work in a short time or performed routine movements, but unusually long. Such type of muscle pain is associated with increased physical activity, overload of muscles – unusual for a period of human life.
The next type of muscle pain is related to the human nervous system – when the pulse of muscle contraction, referring from the regulatory brain, works unstable – the balance of the contraction-resting cycle is violated. The muscle does not have time to rest, to recover, the voltage increases. Increasingly muscle fibers are involved in a convulsive condition (muscle spasms). This condition is also called hypertonic muscle. The reason for the appearance of muscle pain is the active point in the muscle – a trigger – which causes pathologically rapid contraction of muscle beams, resulting in the whole muscle strain and pain. Myofascial pain is acute and chronic. Acute pain appears situationally – often provoked by inflammation, excessive physical activity or overcooling. And chronic pain reminds of constantly overload of muscles.
- The pain increases gradually or suddenly
- Pain in the muscles limits mobility of the limb or part of the body (due to pain)
- You change the usual pose to the forced (compensatory posture); for example, with neck muscle pain, the neck rotation amplitude or shoulder mobility may be limited.
- The muscle that is sore – when palpated, it is usually abbreviated and pattered even under the layer of other muscles as a solid harness (knot).
- Within the critical point, sensitivity is significantly increased.
The muscles of the back of a modern person rarely perform a sufficient amount of motion, so that prolonged sitting or standing in daily work remained comfortable for years to come. The muscles of the back (deep muscles) are designed to sustain the support of the spine and the mobility of the upper body. Such work requires training, endurance. Sometimes one movement is sufficient (in the process of window washing or transfer of furniture), so that the unprepared muscle of the spasms of the spasm. The movement of spasmodic muscle can be very painful, because of the pain of pain sometimes it is almost impossible. Leaning, turning, twisting or performing other back activity for spasmodic muscles can be very uncomfortable.
Diagnosis of myofascial pain
With age, even the usual office static load can be the cause of back muscle pain. The metabolic processes that provide the muscle of the spine with food work only when the muscles work. The less muscle activity – the less the rate of metabolism in the muscles and adjacent tissues. Residual products stagnate in the muscle tissue, cause inflammation, edema – exacerbations of back pain, may contribute to radiculitis, osteochondrosis or intervertebral hernias. The appearance of muscle pain after an insignificant load signals the general weakness of the muscles of the body and may manifest itself in any person (except in a sedentary way of life, pain may be the result of malnutrition when there is a lack of vitamins). Muscle pain is considered to be one of the strongest and most acute – it helps the specialists to correctly diagnose myofascial pain and to find the necessary treatment.
Treatment of pains in the muscles of the back
To get started, you must register for a doctor’s consultation with a neurologist or a kinezoterapeut. The physician will be required to report the duration of muscle pain, the nature of the pain, the reasons for which you think there may be muscular back pain. For the treatment of muscle pain, a program is created that includes techniques for:
- Relaxation muscle back
- natural stretching of back muscles
- deep muscle training
- workout strength and endurance at the final stage of the course
In order to prevent manifestations of myofascial pain, it is necessary to periodically visit the gym, engage in physical activity, in which all major groups of muscles of the human body are processed in the course of studies. Complex therapeutic back massage is an effective method of relaxing muscles, especially effective in back pain. With the correct technique, you can remove not only the fatigue of the muscles, but also return them to normal (only if the cause was insignificant situational load). If muscle back pain disturbs for a long time – in addition to massage, it is necessary to restore the muscles of the back with the help of optimal motor activity – kinesiotherapy, physiotherapy, parterium gymnastics.
Restorative kinesiotherapy (VKT) is the best way to forget about muscle aches and feel good. The course of individual classes completely processes all groups of muscles, including deep muscles of the spine. Takes into account individual features. If you do not imagine that this is a gym class, and the word “fitness” does not tell you anything, then after our course you will not need a coach. You will be able to navigate yourself at any gym and create a program of personal networks.
