Trigger Point Injection
Trigger Point Injection Therapy for Muscle Pain and More
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.
Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles, often caused by injury or overuse of the muscle. Injecting small amounts of anesthetic into the trigger point can help alleviate the pain and is an effective alternative to prescription medicines. Often, sustained relief can be achieved with just a few visits.
TPI is effective on
Lower & Mid Back Pain
Upper Back Pain
Surgical & Injury Scars
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 TPI does:
- Break down fibrous scar tissue
- Relax sore & stiff muscles
- Rehabilitate the nervous system
- Reset the cycle of chronic pain
- Restore function to damaged nerves
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!
