Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS), is a surprisingly common chronic pain condition affecting either a single muscle or group of muscles.
It is caused by damage to the fascia, which are the layers of connective tissue that surround and protect our muscles. This damage may be caused by an injury or trauma to muscles, tendons or ligaments or by an injury to discs in the spine.
The condition is characterised by the presence of ‘trigger points’ which can often be felt or even seen like a knot beneath the skin. These trigger points are tender to touch and cause pain. People suffering MPS often feel pain in other parts of the body, which is called ‘referred pain’. The level of pain can vary considerably from modest discomfort to totally unbearable.
“Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. What I really appreciated was that from the outset you believed me, which I don’t think many people did. You were so caring. Thank you again.” JR (£145,000 received), November 2017
Why do you need a specialist Myofascial Pain Syndrome Solicitor?
Over many years, we have worked with hundreds of clients suffering MPS and other chronic pain conditions. Accordingly, not only do we have an unrivalled understanding of MPS, but also excellent working relationships with many of the country’s leading medical experts in the condition. As Myofascial Pain Syndrome Solicitors, this is knowledge and expertise we use daily for our clients’ benefit.
We understand the fundamental importance of seeking early specialist treatment and are regularly able to arrange funding for the complete range of treatment options.
Most of our clients begin their claims with other law firms before becoming disillusioned with their lack of understanding of their condition.
In summary, what you can expect when you instruct us is:
- access to the leading experts in the field to get you the specialist medical help you so desperately need;
- regular requests for early interim payments to fund the cost of treatment and rehabilitation as recommended by the medical experts;
- consideration as to whether you would benefit from a medically qualified case manager to co-ordinate your treatment, rehabilitation, purchase of specialist equipment and adaptations to your home.
“Andrew, I feel so lucky to have found you. What a difference you made! Let’s face it, with [previous solicitors] the claim was heading for the rocks. Thank you so much.” TR (£265,000 received), October 2018
