What Are Trigger Point Injections?
Trigger point injections are pain-relieving injections that are highly beneficial if you suffer from chronic pain.
These injections, which involve a very thin needle, are made up of anesthetic (numbing) solutions or other medications.
They are designed to provide instant and long-lasting relief.
We simply press on your muscle to determine exactly where you’re tender and inject the solution.
The entire trigger point injection process takes just about 15 minutes, depending on your specific treatment area.
This alternative pain-relieving treatment might be right for you if you have:
- Myofascial pain
- Tension headaches
- Shoulder/neck pain
- Upper/lower back pain
- Arm/leg pain
- Onset numbness/tingling
Trigger point injections are often recommended if other types of treatments, like pain medications, massage therapy, or physical therapy, just haven’t provided effective relief.
How long does it take for trigger point injections to work?
One of the many reasons trigger point injections are one of the top-requested services is because they’re long-lasting. You might be a little sore at the injection site, but you should notice that your pain is nearly non-existent after your trigger point injection treatment.
How often can I get trigger point injections?
Depending on the severity of your symptoms and your specific diagnosis, a couple of trigger point injection sessions can provide continuing relief for several weeks, several months, or even complete recovery.
Each injection is paired with stretching and/or strengthening to help get to the root cause of the condition.
With trigger point injection solutions that contain homeopathic non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, you can have your treatment repeated weekly until resolution.
We will let you know how often you can schedule your trigger point injection visits.
