Trigger point injections

What are trigger point injections?

  • These injections are performed to target musculoskeletal pain and can provide quick relief of pain stemming from small areas of muscle that are irritated or contain “knots.”
  • A trigger point is a point in a muscle that, when pressed upon, causes pain to radiate to another area in a characteristic fashion.
  • The injections may contain a local anesthetic or corticosteroid.
  • These injections can be used on many different muscle groups and can be an effective treatment for a variety of conditions including myofascial pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, and tension headaches.
