Publications - MYOPAIN, a journal of myofascial pain and fibromyalgia

Learn about new approaches and healing techniques for treating your pain-afflicted patients!

Acute and chronic muscle pain affects one of every seven Americans—more than 36 million people who are unable to work, play, or even rest with little relief from crippling pain. The Journal of Musculoskeletal Pain [printed in 8.25” x 10.75” format] is the professional resource you need to treat, comfort, and reassure your patients as they struggle with the every day torment caused by physical and psychological factors that accompany chronic pain. For 14 years, this peer-reviewed journal has presented research findings, case reports, literature and book reviews, and professional announcements on fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, and other types of chronic soft-tissue pain.

The Journal of Musculoskeletal Pain is an essential source of the latest information on:

  • chronic fatigue syndrome 
  • whiplash associated disorders 
  • fibromyalgia syndrome 
  • piriformis muscle syndrome 
  • soft tissue pain syndromes 
  • tetraplegia and paraplegia 
  • inflammatory muscle pain 
  • temporomandibular disorders 
  • Sjögren’s syndrome 
  • myofascial pain syndrome 
  • chronic plantar fasciitis 
  • osteoarthritis 
  • unilateral shoulder myalgia 
  • carpal tunnel syndrome 
  • whiplash injury 
  • chronic neck, shoulder, or back pain 
  • repetitive strain injury 
  • exercise-induced muscle injury

Edited by Michael Sorrell, MD a neurologist and IMS Board Member, MYOPAIN examines the critical issues surrounding treatment options, interventions, and diagnosis, evaluation and assessment methods for your patients. The Journal addresses all aspects related to chronic soft-tissue pain, including the psychological dimensions of pain; trigger point therapy; muscle pain and aging; central sensitization; pain coping strategies; clinical physiotherapy; clinical neurology; muscle pain, sleep variables, and depression; and the development of widespread pain after injuries.
