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.
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."
