If you suffer from painful knots in your muscles, a trigger point injection can help relieve your pain. Trigger points are sore spots in the soft tissue of muscles, often referred to as knots or myofascial pain, though not much is known about the exact mechanisms of this condition. They can be caused by any number of reasons, including muscle strain, stress, underlying inflammation, bad posture, or an injury.
Your doctor can perform a trigger point injection during a regular visit. Once they determine where the trigger points are located, the skin is prepared, then a solution of anesthetic medication is injected into each trigger point to relax the muscle and alleviate the related pain. There is no observation period afterwards and you may drive yourself home. The injection may be repeated as needed to reduce the severity and frequency of your pain.
This procedure is considered to be very low risk, with the only risks being bleeding and infection. Our providers have vast experience performing this and other procedures to alleviate your pain. If you have a painful knot, contact us today and avoid suffering any longer from unnecessary pain.
