Myofascial Injury Lawyer

Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) is caused by trigger points in fascial tissue, causing pain, tenderness, and limited range of motion. Depending on location and cause, the pain can range from mild discomfort to severe sharp pain.

The cervical muscles are known to cause head and neck pain. Trigger points in the area are a source of referred pain to the head and face.

This is often described as tension headache, post-whiplash syndrome or even mistakenly attributed to psychological causes.

The muscles of the cervical region that refer pain to head and face include:

  • The upper trapezius - refers pain up the side of the neck across the occipital temporal and frontal regions to settle behind the eye. There may also be some referral over the jaw. Trigger points in this muscle may not greatly limit cervical movement, however, palpation identifies tension.
  • The sternocleidomastoid muscle - is complex in function, referred pain pattern and involvement in non-pain symptoms such as postural dizziness and imbalance. It also can be the cause of satellite trigger points in nearby muscles, which result in impairment of craniomandibular function; or TMJ syndrome. Two distinct pain patterns are observed from active trigger points.
