Trigger Point Injections

BackTrigger points are hyperirritable nodules located within skeletal muscles. They are often associated with taught muscle bands. Palpation of trigger points will create discomfort or pain. Trigger Point Injections have been shown to be an effective treatment modality in addition to physical therapy, heat, stretching and massage therapy. The procedure takes place during your regular office visit. Your Physician will insert a small needle into the trigger point and inject saline, lidocaine, or steroids into the muscle. The procedure causes only mild discomfort and takes just a few minutes.
