What is muscle pain?

 

Muscles in our body, represent approximately 50% of the body weight and has been long recognized by clinicians as a source of common pain problems.

 

Generally reflecting the prevailing concepts of muscle pain, mechanism or clinical observations of painful muscles, various terms have been applied to muscles and soft tissue pain.

 

The changing concepts and thoughts about the nature of muscle pain make it difficult to collect data on the impact and incidence of muscle-related pain.

 

The palpable changes in the muscles, revealing increased ropiness, modularity and resilience, led to the terms Myogelosen (muscle gelling), Muskelhärten (hardened muscle) and Muskelschwiele (muscle callus). The term myofascial pain, suggesting pain originating in muscle and connective tissue.

 

The term “Regionalised musculoskeletal disorders” can be used for muscle pain when the causes appear to be inflammation, sprain, strain, or degeneration of muscles and tendons. When no obvious aetiology is present to account for muscle pain, tenderness, stiffness, and often associated nonanatomic dysesthesias and autonomic disturbances, four overlapping and confusing diagnoses are often used:

 

  • Regional pain syndrome,
  • complex regional pain syndrome, and when muscle pain is widespread
  • chronic widespread pain (CWP)
  • fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS).

The most common causes of muscle pains are :

  • Injury or trauma, including sprains and strains
  • Overuse including using a muscle too much, too soon before warming up, or too often
  • Tension or stress

Muscle pain may also be due to:

  • Drugs like ACE inhibitors used for lowering blood pressure, cocaine, and statins for lowering cholesterol
  • Dermatomyositis
  • Electrolyte imbalance, such as too little potassium or calcium
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Infections, including the flu, Lyme disease, Lupus
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica
  • Polymyositis
  • Rhabdomyolysis

Various infections like malaria, muscle abscess, polio, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, trichinosis (roundworm)

Muscle aches and pains that do not resolve and are severe, requires medical assessment, treatment and physiotherapy for muscle pain.

Home remedies for muscle aches

Home remedies are often enough to relieve aches resulted from minor injuries, too much exercise, or stress.

Many people can treat their symptoms using the R.I.C.E method, which is like the following:

Rest: Rest the affected area and stop the straining activity for that area.
Ice: Use an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to help relieve pain and reduce swelling. Apply ice to the area for 15–20 minutes three times a day.
Compression: Compression bandage helps to reduce swelling.
Elevation: Elevate the feet to minimize inflammation, if possible.

 

Other helpful home remedies include:

• using OTC pain relievers
• carefully stretching out the affected muscles
• Indulging in relaxation activities that reduce stress, such as yoga and meditation

 

Medications

Doctors sometimes prescribe various medications to treat the underlying problem:  • Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatories (NSAIDs)  NSAIDs, like Aleve or Ibuprofen etc. are preferred in the treatment of some particular muscle pain conditions, like myofascial pain syndrome and muscle strains/injury.

 

  • Muscle Relaxants Muscle relaxers like Flexeril and Zanaflex etc. to are used to ease the pain of an acute muscle injury. • Antidepressants  Tricyclic antidepressants, such as Elavil (amitriptyline), too, are used to treat muscle pain in conditions of fibromyalgia etc.
  • Corticosteroids Corticosteroids are used to treat many inflammatory conditions, which relieves the symptoms of muscle pain. • Steroid-Sparing Agents  For inflammatory medical conditions, your doctor may have you take a steroid-sparing drug.


Vitamin D deficiency

 

Reversal of the underlying problem is required as a treatment of osteomalacia—for example, a reversal of vitamin D deficiency with prescription vitamin D supplementation.Fluids and Dialysis
Hydration and electrolyte repletion is vital to the treatment of rhabdomyolysis.


Complementary and Alternative Therapies

Complementary therapies are commonly used to ease the symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.  Some of these therapies include:  Tai chi Massage Mindfulness meditation Lastly, another alternative therapy called trigger-point injection too is used sometimes to treat myofascial pain syndrome.Physiotherapy for Muscle Pain

Special kind of therapy called spray-and-stretch and massage is commonly used to treat myofascial pain syndrome.


Surgery

Surgery is not a common treatment for muscle pain, except maybe for certain serious diagnoses, like, pyomyositis.

Upon your first visit, the physiotherapy treatment for muscle cramps will begin with an assessment by gaining background knowledge on why, how and when your injury occurred.  Afterwards, a physical examination will take place which will evaluate the extent of the muscle injury.  Muscle strains are classified as 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree which defines the severity and establishes guidelines for the treatment plan and anticipated recovery time.  The presence of bruising will indicate that there has been some tearing of muscle fibres – and the location and extent of the bruising help the physiotherapist determine the degree of injury.  After a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will create a treatment plan that will address the acute stage of your specific injury as well as long-term recovery goals. The rehabilitation process also includes education and suggestions to prevent recurrent and future injuries.

 

One must get different physiotherapy depending on where the pain is. For example:

 

  • Physiotherapy for throat muscles.
  • Physiotherapy for leg muscles.
  • Physiotherapy for stomach muscles.

    How to find the right balance?

 

Physiotherapists choose, as indicated by the specific injury,  from a variety of different methods of treatment to treat the injured muscle.


  • Therapeutic Modalities
    Electrotherapeutic devices such as ultrasound, interferential current, and TENs can aid in the healing process and with pain control in the acute stage.

 

  • Heat & Ice Heat and ice are known to be successful for pain control although the jury is out as to whether or not it helps to decrease inflammation and swelling.

 

  • Strengthening Exercises
    Perhaps one of the most important and beneficial parts of Physiotherapy, injury-related strengthening exercises ensure that you maintain strength in areas surrounding the injury and regain the strength in the involved muscle safely.

  • Manual or Self-Stretching By assisting you in stretches proven to be beneficial for your specific injury, the stretches will help lengthen and loosen the muscles, ultimately increasing your flexibility and range of motion. Home exercises and self-stretching are an important part of the treatment program!
  • Therapeutic Taping Sometimes we need a little help from therapeutic tape to help the patient get back to full speed. A tape can provide compression and support and can also be used to relax or facilitate the injured muscle.

How We Made A Difference

  • physiotherapy for muscle pain, Physiotherapy Muscle Pain  Unqualified office staff, when you call to clarify something. Many times they don't understand the question. They are not trained well. The customer care staff needs an upgraded system, where notes are fed into the system. So you don't need someone else calling up and giving you the same info. The caretaker is not trained well. If they are looking after an elderly person, they should know that they have to be in the best of health to look after my mother. She ended not making a meal for my mother and my neighbour had to provide it. If the caretaker is not well she should have asked for a replacement asap and not waited. It is shocking, we have paid a huge amount of money for this service and I am absolutely unhappy. Please do not call for caretaker's from Care24. As long as they are getting their money. They care a damn!!! Worst service providers.

  • physiotherapy for muscle pain, Physiotherapy Muscle Pain  The worst experience I've had of my life. I normally never really write reviews, but I had to write this because this agency is the worst company I've dealt with till now. Their customer service is terrible, most of their attendants are not competent for taking care of elderly patients. Please do not use their service.

  • physiotherapy for muscle pain, Physiotherapy Muscle Pain  My father had a hip bone surgery in January. I have been using Care24 services ever since. The attendants that cane were good in the beginning. However their services have become good to bad to worse to worst in the last 15 days. They changed the night attendant without informing me personally just 6 hours before the time. My father had just settled down with the last attendant and now they were sending a replacement tonight. To add to my frustration the guy didn’t turn up and did not answer the calls. When I called their call centre - they said they can’t help me at this hour. Well- I can’t help but call them CARELESS CARE24.
