Trigger Point Injection

An evidence-based treatment for pain that targets muscular discomfort at its source

Precision Relief

Many of us know what it’s like to have a painful ‘knot’ in our muscles. Trigger points are small, painful spots on our muscles that form when a muscle is unable to relax. In some cases, these tiny knots can be felt beneath the skin and eventually become extremely painful and can sometimes radiate pain to other areas in the body.

Trigger Point Injection involves using a fine needle to inject small amounts of saline, sometimes mixed with mild anesthetic, into the trigger point. The action of the needle initiates a lengthening and relaxing response of the muscle. A growing body of research is confirming the effectiveness of this technique in relieving muscle pain, especially in the arms, legs, low back and neck. Trigger Point Injection can also be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches and myofascial pain.

The procedure only takes a few minutes and you can have several trigger points injected during one visit with your clinician.

Relieving Pain

  • Is it for me?

    Trigger Point Injection could be the right treatment for you if your muscle pain has not improved with other treatments, such as pain medication, massage and physical therapy.

  • What to Expect

    You can sit or lie down during the procedure, depending on the nature and location of your pain. Your healthcare practitioner with locate the trigger point causing the pain, then will insert a small needle into the area for the injection. Most patients find relief after just one treatment.

  • Aftercare

    After a trigger point injection, you can use your muscle as normal. However, you should avoid strenuous activity for a few days.

"While it’s important to find relief from pain, long-term relief depends on treating the source of the discomfort. This way, it does not return. Trigger Point Injection targets muscular pain at its source, bringing lasting relief for a variety of chronic aches, pains and tension."
