Trigger Point Injections

Our trigger point injection service is a specialized medical procedure designed to alleviate pain and discomfort caused by trigger points in your muscles. Trigger points are tight, contracted areas within a muscle that can be sensitive and painful when pressed. This treatment is particularly effective for individuals experiencing myofascial pain syndrome or muscle spasms.

From $49

Service Description

During the trigger point injection procedure, you can expect the following:

  1. Identification of Trigger Points: Our healthcare provider will locate the specific trigger points in your muscles by conducting a physical examination and discussing your symptoms and medical history.

  2. Preparation: Before the injection, the skin around the trigger point will be cleaned and sterilized to reduce the risk of infection.

  3. Injection: A small needle will be inserted directly into the trigger point. The injection may contain a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, and/or a corticosteroid to reduce inflammation and provide pain relief.

  4. Targeted Treatment: The injection aims to release the tension in the trigger point, allowing the muscle to relax and relieving pain and discomfort.

  5. Multiple Injections: If you have multiple trigger points, our healthcare provider may administer injections in various areas during the same session.

  6. Post-Injection Care: You will be given instructions on how to care for the injection site and manage any potential side effects. It's common to experience temporary soreness at the injection site.

  7. Follow-Up: Depending on your response to the treatment, our healthcare team may recommend additional sessions or alternative therapies to further address your pain and improve your overall well-being.
     

Our trigger point injection service aims to provide targeted pain relief, increase muscle mobility, and enhance your overall quality of life. By effectively addressing trigger points, we aim to help you return to your daily activities with reduced discomfort and improved muscle function.
