Trigger Point Injections

Trigger-point injections are a minimally invasive procedure used to alleviate muscle pain and tension by targeting specific trigger points—areas of tight, knotted muscle fibers that can cause discomfort and restricted movement. The injections typically consist of a combination of local anesthetics and anti-inflammatory medications, which are precisely administered into the trigger points to reduce pain and promote relaxation of the affected muscles.

How Do They Work?

Our team of skilled specialists utilizes precise techniques and advanced imaging technology to administer trigger-point injections with accuracy and precision. By directly targeting the trigger points, the injected medication helps to disrupt the pain cycle, providing immediate relief and allowing for improved mobility and function.

Key Benefits of Trigger-Point Injections:

  1. Localized Pain Relief: Trigger-point injections deliver medication directly to the source of pain, providing targeted relief for muscle-related discomfort and tension.
  2. Improved Range of Motion: By relaxing tight muscles and reducing inflammation, trigger-point injections can help improve your range of motion and flexibility, allowing you to move more freely and comfortably.
  3. Minimally Invasive: Trigger-point injections are performed on an outpatient basis and involve minimal discomfort, making them a convenient and accessible option for managing muscle pain.
  4. Quick Results: Many patients experience immediate relief following trigger-point injections, with continued improvement in symptoms over the following days and weeks.

Is a Trigger-Point Injection Right for You?

Trigger-point injections are typically used to treat pain in the neck, lower back, arms and legs. They can also be effective for tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain or fibromyalgia, and for myofascial pain syndrome, a chronic pain condition in which trigger points develop in certain muscles, and cause pain when touched. Patients with this condition often experience deep, aching pain in the affected muscle that worsens over time, as well as muscle and joint stiffness, and difficulty sleeping. Symptoms can significantly affect a person’s quality of life, and should be addressed if they do not subside. Over time, patients with untreated myofascial pain syndrome can develop muscle weakness or fibromyalgia.

If you’re experiencing chronic muscle pain and tension that hasn’t responded to conservative treatments, trigger-point injections may be a beneficial option for you. Our team will evaluate your symptoms and medical history to determine if this procedure is appropriate for your condition.
