Trigger Point Injections
This is a minimally-invasive procedure that helps to reduce painful "knots" in your muscles. These knots, or trigger points, can form after trauma or with fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, and tension headaches. They often irritate the nerves in that area and can create referred pain to other parts of your body as well.
We will often recommend trigger point injections if we find muscle trigger points during your examination and if we feel that the injections are likely to help you feel better quickly. We often use these trigger point injections for painful muscles near the elbows, the upper back, the neck, and the hips.
