Trigger Point Injections

Trigger Point Injections

Trigger point injections are used to treat pain at the source, specifically at the knots of muscles that form when the muscles don’t relax properly. These trigger points can radiate pain from the knotted area. 

Trigger Point Injection Procedures

The trigger point injection is a simple process that can take place in the doctor’s office. A needle containing a local anesthetic is inserted into the trigger point. The anesthetic eliminates the activity at the trigger point and alleviates the pain. The procedure only takes a few minutes and is considered safe with minimal side effects. 

Trigger point injections can also be used to loosen muscles to make rehabilitation easier. The injections are used to relieve pain and allow for more movement during rehabilitation.
