Trigger Point Injections
Chronic muscle pain can have a profound and debilitating impact on daily function and quality of life. With trigger point injections, we can help to alleviate your chronic muscle pain by injecting medication directly into the myofascial trigger points associated with your discomfort. Trigger point injections offer relief from chronic muscle pain to restore function and improve quality of life.
What are trigger points?
Trigger points are sensitive bundles of skeletal muscle that are focal areas of spasm and inflammation. These highly irritable spots can cause regional, persistent pain that may also result in a decreased range of motion. Trigger points are often implicated in the following chronic musculoskeletal disorders:
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Neck pain
- Low back pain
- TMJ pain
How trigger point injections can help
Trigger point injections involve injecting medication directly into the trigger point to provide pain relief. They work by blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain and reducing inflammation. Depending upon the unique requirements of your case, this minimally invasive approach to care may include the use of a single anesthetic, a combination of local anesthetics, corticosteroids, or a combination of an anesthetic along with a corticosteroid.
As a skilled and experienced Interventional Pain Management specialist, our doctor will identify the underlying source of your discomfort and determine the best strategies to address your needs.
