At one point in our lives, we all experience muscle pain. Usually, the pain subsides after a day or two. However, if the pain lingers, it may be a sign of unaddressed muscle tension. At Renew Health, we have experts who specialize in relieving muscle pain.
What are trigger point injections?
Trigger point injections can help to soothe muscle pain, especially in your neck, shoulders, and lower back. It also can be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches and myofascial pain. Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles. They form when a muscle cannot relax. Sometimes when you rub your muscles, you can feel these knots. By injecting small amounts of anesthetic into the trigger point, you can help alleviate the pain.
How often will I need trigger point injections?
Most patients receive an initial series of injections which are repeated 2-3 weeks later. Depending on your body’s response to the trigger point injections, our healthcare provider will determine whether additional injections are indicated.
