Myofascial Pain

Everyone has experienced acute muscle pain from normal strain, injury or overuse. Most muscle pain dissipates on its own with rest and normal healing within a few days. When muscle pain persists, becoming chronic, it may be a symptom of myofascial pain syndrome. At Medici Medical Arts, we can diagnose myofascial pain and find the right treatment to give patients long-term relief.

Myofascial pain usually occurs in muscles near the spine or joints. The muscles develop trigger points, which are small knots in the muscle that are tender and painful to the touch. These trigger points can cause localized pain in the muscle and referred pain to other areas in the body. Myofascial pain can be difficult to diagnose and treat, as there may be no specific evidence of trauma to the muscles. It is often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia. These two conditions are similar and commonly mistaken for each other. Symptoms may include:

  • Constant or chronic muscle pain
  • Weakness in the muscle
  • Tingling sensation
  • Sleeping issues due to discomfort
  • Tender spots or knots in the muscle (trigger points)

The causes of myofascial pain can vary. Overuse, poor posture, lifestyle and other factors can all contribute to myofascial pain syndrome, but the exact cause is often unknown.

Treating Myofascial Pain Syndrome

If you are diagnosed with myofascial pain syndrome, our pain physicians can create a personalized treatment plan to give you relief. Each case of myofascial pain syndrome is different, but there are treatments that help reduce or stop muscle pain. Some treatment modalities that may be included in your treatment plan are physical therapy, trigger point injections, myofascial release, psychotherapy and medication management.

If you have chronic or ongoing muscle pain that does not seem to respond to rest or OTC medications, come see us at Medici Medical Arts. We will help diagnose your condition and offer a treatment plan to give you relief. Contact one of our locations in the Atlanta area to schedule your initial consultation.

We can help you!

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
