Current Issue

Current issue is that Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) is not known even in doctor, medical field. In many cases, pain from MPS may be diagnosed as neuromusculoskeletal condition such as spinal disc herniation, spinal canal stenosis and spondylolisthesis, or as uncertain disease. Also even if we ask doctor to treat for MPS such as trigger point block injection to muscle (that is totally different from epidural block injection , nerve root block injection), doctor may refuse, because they don’t know MPS.

Also since patients don’t know Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS), they cannot know treatment for Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS). So they keep pain long time. When they know Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS), it’s too late for easy recovery from pain.


I am not sure that all patients with similar pain to me can release pain. At lease there is a person who has pain due to Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) like me.

There is doctor such as Dr.Kamo who is trying to spread understating about MPS. I think there is what patients can do to spread understating about MPS.

I would like to propose followings to spread understanding about MPS.

  • (Although It’s little bit difficult,) please ask your doctor about opinion of Dr.Kamo’s home page, his book , MPS information on link page and/or this website. Also please ask opinion relationship between Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) and skeletal system disease such as sciatica, disc syndrome, spondylolysis, osteoarthritis (OA), spondylosis deformans, piriformis muscle syndrome, tendovaginitis, meniscus problem and so on
    (After I asked my doctor, I felt basically doctor never care medical information form patient, even that is based on facts. But I believe there is doctor who considers patients information, let’s do our best.)
  • To exchange MPS information at forum on this web site to be shown for many people including medical field.
    (For that, important thing is that people stop on this website in many kinds of information for pain in internet. In order to that, your powerful opinion is need for this website. Please leave your message (even short comment) at our forum).

Best way to treat for Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) is to visit to doctors who know Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) well such as Dr.Kamo. But even if you visit these doctors, we cannot change current situation. Before your visit to these doctors, let’s ask your current doctor about Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS). After you could release from pain, let’s leave your experience at forum in this website.

What one person can do is very small. However when many people cooperate, it will be big power to change current situation. In order for release of pain on people as much as possible, your cooperation will be really appreciated.

For prevention to be big issue

I must feel if nobody continues not to consider current situation about Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS), finally it may be big issue such as HIV-tainted blood scandal in Japan. If it come again, everybody will be unhappy.

Of course, all of science and engineering are progressing always. There is no goal. Therefore always it may include incomplete information. But when new logic , information come , the most important thing is to feed back after evaluation as soon as possible. In case of “HIV-tainted blood scandal”, I don’t know why but in some conties, nobody did that. So small thing became big issue.

Not to repeat this kind of thing, now important thing is to consider Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) by everybody including doctor, patients and so on.

To people all over the world

Now Japan is on turning point for Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS). I would like to people all over the world to know this situation. Also I would like to exchange and share information about Myfascial Pain Syndrome (MPS), spinal disc herniation, spinal canal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and so on with people all over the world. We’d really appreciated, if you could leave message on forum.
