Trigger point injections are a minimally invasive treatment option for pain relief, targeting specific trigger points within the muscles. At Tennessee Spine, our licensed healthcare professionals provide trigger point injections to help patients find lasting relief from pain. In this comprehensive guide, we'll discuss the benefits, process, and effectiveness of trigger point injections.
What are Trigger Point Injections?
Trigger point injections are a procedure in which a healthcare professional injects a local anesthetic, saline, or corticosteroid solution into a trigger point to provide immediate relief from pain and muscle tension. Trigger points are tight knots or bands within muscles that can cause localized or referred pain. Injections can help to alleviate pain, improve range of motion, and promote healing.
During a trigger point injection procedure, a licensed healthcare professional will:
Identify the trigger point
Prepare the injection site
Administer the injection
Apply pressure and massage
