Abstract

Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a musculoskeletal pain disorder with a high prevalence in low back pain complaints. However, because of its complex and confusing nature, MPS is commonly misdiagnosed and overlooked by clinicians who are unfamiliar with this pain syndrome. However, with proper knowledge, MPS can be identified and effectively treated. This article discusses the current diagnostic and treatment modalities regarding MPS in the low back.
