This article highlights chronic pain syndrome and myofascial pain.

It is part of the chapter on pain rehabilitation in the

Self-Directed Medical Knowledge Program for practitioners and

trainees in physical medicine and rehabilitation. This article

discusses behavioral maladaptations to chronic pain which lead

to global physical, psychologic, social, and vocational

impairments–the chronic pain syndrome. The spectrum of

myofascial pain syndromes, contributing factors, and

interventions are detailed. New advances that are covered in

this section include controversies in long-term use of opioids

and muscle relaxants; differentiating fibromyalgia, myofascial

pain syndromes, and chronic fatigue syndrome; pathophysiology

of myofascial pain; and beneficial treatments.
