Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) is characterized by muscle spasm and pain. The most common location is in the neck or upper back. MPS can also be located in the region of the hip and buttocks. Pain often radiates from the problem point down an arm or a leg. Pain from MPS generally worsens as the day progresses.  This condition is treated with various modalities that include stretching, exercise, muscle strengthening, massage and certain types of medication.

Choosing Your San Antonio Myofascial Pain Syndrome Specialist

It's not easy selecting the right doctor who will take the time to understand your particular needs so that they can better help you understand your condition and its treatment. So it is imperative that you ask the right questions:

  • Does your specialist have first-hand experience at serving those most affected by Myofascial Pain Syndrome?
  • Is your specialist recognized and respected by her peers as an active patient advocate?
  • Is your specialist board certified in both Rheumatology and Internal Medicine?

Dr. Chelsea Clinton has a positive answer for each of these questions. Dr. Clinton's biography attests to her dedication. Inspired by the world-class rheumatologists she worked with at The University of Texas Medical School, Dr. Clinton has dedicated her career to patients who suffer from rheumatologic conditions.
