Trigger Point Injections
What is it?
A trigger point injection can help soothe myofascial pain, especially in your neck, shoulder, arms, legs and lower back.
Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles that can be very sensitive to touch/pressure. They may form after acute or chronic trauma leading to stress on muscle fibers, which can become tight and painful. Fibromyalgia and migraines are examples of conditions that can be treated with trigger point injections. Trigger point injections commonly involve injections of local anesthetic, either with or without corticosteroid.
