TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS

At Scott Medical Center, we provide trigger point injections to help patients who are experiencing pain in muscles that are tense of that have developed “knots”. Often, muscles can lose the ability to relax after certain strenuous activities, creating pain for the individual in the form of “trigger points”.

Trigger points are sensitive and often very painful, and cause immobility and inflexibility. These trigger points can get worse over time, so its important to try and relax the muscles as soon as possible. Trigger point injections contain a natural fluid, and the therapy is a safe, effective alternative to other steroid injections. The injection is administered directly to the tight muscle, forcing it to relax and release. Once relaxation is obtained, circulation of blood and other nutrients will increase making the individual fee much better.
