Myofascial Pain Causes


Myofascial pain might develop from a muscle injury or from excessive strain on a particular muscle or muscle group, ligament, or tendon. Other causes include:1

  • Injury to spinal disks
  • General tiredness
  • Repetitive movements
  • Medical conditions (including heart attackstomach irritation)
  • Lack of activity (such as a broken arm)

According to Ayurveda, there are many factors that can be involved in the chronic pain and tenderness associated with muscular pain (fibromyalgia/myofascial) conditions. These factors are not always the same for each individual. However, in general, Ayurveda views the condition resulting from two major causes:3

1) Disturbance in nervous system function (Vata dosha imbalance in ayurveda) and,

2) An accumulation of toxins and blockages (ama) in the body.

As the nervous system become less stable, toxins accumulate forming the ground for fibromyalgia. Once these imbalances reach a critical level, often a further stressful experience or event in a person’s life triggers the onset of fibromyalgia symptoms. When the individual becomes more balanced and rested, the symptoms subside but when the individual has stressful events, poor sleep, poor diet etc., the symptoms flare up again.3
