WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
WHAT ARE TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS?
Trigger point injections are a pain relieving treatment based on trigger point therapy. It involves the injection of an anti-inflammatory compound to break up small bits of scar tissue that cause chronic stiffness and pain. The injection of a small amount of fluid helps relax the muscle and stimulate the body’s natural healing response. This procedure is helpful to people who suffer from chronically stiff and painful necks and backs.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
A trigger point injection can help soothe pain throughout the body. It also can be used to treat other conditions.. Many patients show signs of improvement within the first or second treatment!
- Reduces Pain In Entire Body
- Treats Migraine Headaches
- Improved Functioning
- Relieves Myofascial Pain
- It’s A Quick Procedure
IS IT PAINFUL?
The injections are made with a very thin needle and include a small amount of lidocaine. This needle and lidocaine provides relief to the minor pinch associated with injections. Most patients at Arizona Pain Relief report very little discomfort during treatment. However, since the purpose of the injection is to break down scar tissue and tightness within the muscle, some patients experience tenderness in the days following treatment as the achy muscles heal and the knots break up.
WILL ADDITIONAL TREATMENT BE REQUIRED?
In most cases, patients who have trigger point injections also benefit from postural correction and physical therapy. A combination of treatments help address the pain, and allows the muscles to heal. The healing of the muscle retrains the body to stay in correct postural alignment. Muscle knots are often caused by poor posture from sitting at a desk all day or looking down at a phone all day. If you suffer from a chronically stiff and sore neck or back, make an appointment with the clinicians at Arizona Pain Relief.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes. The main side effects are soreness and tenderness in the following few days.
