Break the Pain Cycle with Trigger Point Injection Therapy

Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles, often caused by injury or overuse of the muscle. A trigger point injection (TPI) can help soothe muscle pain, especially in your upper back and neck. It also can be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches, and myofascial pain.

Injecting small amounts of anesthetic into the trigger point can help alleviate the pain and is an effective alternative to prescription medicines. As the medication does its work, blood flow will improve and the body will start to heal itself. Often, sustained relief can be achieved with just a few visits.

How Is a Trigger Point Injection Done?

While either seated or lying down, your doctor presses on the muscle to locate the trigger point. Then, they insert a small needle into the area and inject anesthetic. The injections feel like little bee stings that are over and done with quickly. Several trigger points can be treated during one visit, and the procedure only takes a few minutes.

What Happens After the Procedure?

After a trigger point injection, you can actively use your muscle, although you should avoid strenuous activity for the rest of the day. The anesthetic itself breaks down into B vitamins and antioxidants that nourish the tissues and nerves. Chronic muscle pain can have a significant impact on a person’s ability to function and their quality of life. Suffering is optional!
