Trigger Point Injections: Relief for Chronic Pain

Are you living with chronic pain that is affecting your quality of life? If so, you may be a candidate for trigger point injections, a safe and effective treatment that can help relieve pain and improve your overall well-being.

 

What are Trigger Point Injections?

Trigger point injections are a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a small amount of anesthetic and/or steroid medication into specific points in the muscle. These points, known as trigger points, are areas of tight muscle fibers that can cause pain and discomfort. By injecting medication into these points, the muscles can relax, reducing pain and improving mobility.

Trigger Point Injections Q & A

The purpose of trigger point injections is to relax tight muscles and reduce pain. They may be used to treat a variety of conditions, including tension headaches, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, and muscle strains or sprains.

What conditions can trigger point injections treat?

Dr. Price and his team use trigger point injections to heal trigger points throughout the body. Trigger points are muscle areas that become inflamed and form knots. They can cause pain around the trigger point, but can also refer to muscle fibers tightening then shortening, pulling on bones, tendons, and ligaments. Trigger points can happen to anyone, but they’re often associated with certain conditions. Trigger point injections can, therefore, reduce the symptoms associated with:

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Myofascial pain syndrome

  • Injuries

  • Sciatica

  • Migraines and headaches

Trigger points are often found in the shoulders and upper back, and lead to neck and shoulder pain, as well as headaches. If you manipulate the area, you can sometimes feel a palpable nodule at the trigger point.

How do trigger point injections work?

How long do trigger point injections take?

Trigger point injections are typically quick, taking just a few minutes to administer.

Trigger point injections are given directly to your trigger point area, affecting certain nerves and interfering with the transmission of pain signals. Although Sarapin is an analgesic, it doesn’t impact other body systems like over-the-counter pain relievers and opiates.

Instead, these injections mostly impact your C-type nerve fibers, reducing pain and inflammation, resulting in relaxed trigger points and less pain. If you think your pain might be the result of trigger points, contact the team at Cornerstone Integrated Healthcare to learn more about trigger point injections.
