Managing and treating your pain is an essential part of active rehabilitation. One of the specialty services that our providers at Pain Rehabilitation Associates offer to help treat pain is trigger point injections. Trigger point injections can be an effective treatment for pain relief.
A trigger point injection is a procedure which can be performed by one of our physicians at Pain Rehabilitation Associates. A small needle is inserted into your muscle trigger point. Unlike dry needling, a physician performing a trigger point injection procedure will inject an anesthetic, or even a steroid into the involved muscle to deactivate the trigger point.
Trigger point injections are a pain relief option for both chronic and acute muscle pain. Similar to dry needling, the needle inserted into the trigger point is intended to provide pain relief from muscle tension or knots in your muscles. This procedure will also provide your doctor with important diagnostic information about your pain and will help in the further development of your comprehensive personalized treatment plan.
Trigger point injections can help with:
- Chronic and acute pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Back pain
- Neck pain
At Pain Rehabilitation Associates, it is our goal to provide you with the best and most effective treatment plan for you and your pain to help you achieve all of your wellness goals. Your provider may prescribe trigger point injections as a part of your personalized treatment plan to help manage and relieve your pain.
