What are Trigger Point Injections?

Trigger Point Injections are a type of medical procedure used to treat painful muscle knots or "trigger points". These knots can cause discomfort, stiffness, and even referred pain in other parts of the body. During the procedure, a healthcare provider injects a small amount of medication directly into the trigger point, which can help alleviate pain and muscle tension.

Trigger Point Injections may be beneficial for individuals who suffer from chronic muscle pain or stiffness, as well as those who experience acute muscle spasms. They may be particularly useful for individuals with conditions such as fibromyalgia, tension headaches, or myofascial pain syndrome. However, not everyone is a good candidate for Trigger Point Injections, and it is important to consult with a healthcare provider to determine whether this type of treatment is appropriate for your particular condition.

What to expect during a Trigger Point Injection procedure
  • We will identify the trigger point(s) that need to be treated.
  • The area around the trigger point(s) will be cleaned with an antiseptic solution.
  • A small needle will be inserted into the trigger point, and a small amount of medication (such as a local anesthetic or corticosteroid) will be injected.
  • The needle will be removed, and a bandage may be applied to the injection site.

    The entire procedure typically takes only a few minutes to complete, and most people are able to resume normal activities immediately afterward.
  • Intravenous therapy

    Which areas of the body respond best to Trigger Point Injections?

    When it comes to trigger point injections, some areas of the body tend to respond better than others. These areas are known as "trigger point hotspots," and they are often the source of chronic pain and muscle tension for many people. By targeting these hotspots with trigger point injections, healthcare providers can help alleviate pain and improve overall mobility.

    • Neck and shoulders: Trigger points in the neck and shoulders are often the result of poor posture, stress, or repetitive motions. They can cause headaches, neck pain, and restricted range of motion in the shoulders.
    • Lower back: Trigger points in the lower back are a common cause of chronic low back pain. They can also cause referred pain in the hips and legs.
    • Hips and glutes: Trigger points in the hips and glutes can cause pain and stiffness in the hips, lower back, and thighs. They may be caused by prolonged sitting, muscle imbalances, or overuse.
    • Legs and feet: Trigger points in the legs and feet can cause pain, tingling, and numbness. They may be the result of overuse, injury, or conditions such as plantar fasciitis or sciatica.
