What is Muscle Pain?
Have you ever worked out or been extremely active for a few hours only to wake up the next day with sore, tired, and achy muscles? Everyone experiences this type of muscle pain at some point, and it does not necessarily mean that you need treatment. The body heals itself given time.
Some types of muscle pain, though, do require medical treatments, and SOAR is proud to offer our patients conservative, non-surgical options. If you suffer from any of the following conditions, we can help.
- Golfer’s Elbow Treatment
- Tendonitis Treatment
- Tennis Elbow Treatment
- Piriformis Syndrome Treatment
- Fibromyalgia Treatment
- Myofascial Pain Syndrome
- Rotator Cuff Injury
- Rotator Cuff Strain
- Rotator Cuff Tear
Golfer’s Elbow Treatment
Golfer’s elbow is an overuse injury that causes muscle pain and other types of discomfort in the elbow area. Treatment for the condition is intended to alleviate inflammation and promote self-healing of the area.
The tendons of the body connect muscles to bones. The fibrous tissue is made of collagen and is not designed to stretch. You may develop tendonitis (an inflammation of the tendons) if you overextend the tendon.
Tennis Elbow Treatment
Due to the nature of the sport, tennis players place a great deal of stress on their arms, especially the dominant arm. Over time, the tendons may develop small micro-tears that cause pain in the elbow area.
Piriformis Syndrome Treatment
The piriformis muscle is located in the buttocks and is susceptible to spasms that lead to discomfort. Piriformis syndrome may affect the sciatic nerve which causes aching in the buttocks, shooting pains down the affected leg, and sharp pains in the foot.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition in which a person experiences general muscle pain and stiffness. The condition is not well documented and few treatments exist. At SOAR, we offer diagnostic measures and non-surgical treatment options to alleviate the symptoms of your fibromyalgia.
Myofascial Pain Syndrome
Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic condition in which pressure is placed on points in the body that results in localized and referred pain. It usually develops in areas where the muscles are used repetitively.
Most cases of arthritis are categorized as osteoarthritis. It is a joint disorder in which the cartilage in the affected joint breaks down, allowing the bones to grind together. People with osteoarthritis experience a range of symptoms, such as immobility of the joint, stiffness, and aching.
Rotator Cuff Injury
The rotator cuff is the part of your shoulder where tendons and muscles work together to keep the should joint in place and stable. A rotator cuff injury describes a condition in which the tendon and/or muscle is damaged, thus allowing the shoulder joint to slip.
Rotator Cuff Strain
A rotator cuff strain is an overextension of the muscles and/or tendons of the rotator cuff in the shoulder.
Rotator Cuff Tear
The muscles and tendons of the rotator cuff can be torn in severe cases of overextension and over use.

What Should I Expect from My Muscle Pain Treatment?
Chronic muscle pain can be challenging to diagnose. We use physical examination and diagnostic testing to accurately diagnose the reason that you have chronic muscle pain. Based on our findings, we recommend a tiered treatment approach that begins with the most conservative option.

Muscle pain treatment may be covered under your insurance. We can provide details of your out-of-pocket costs at the time of your consultation. Should you need financial assistance, please speak with our patient coordinator to learn about payment plans, discounted rates, and our other programs.
