Pain Relief in a Single Shot

Trigger point injections are a specialized pain management technique that involves the injection of medication directly into trigger points, which are tight knots or bands of muscle fibers. By targeting these specific points, trigger point injections help to relieve muscle tension, reduce pain, and improve range of motion, providing effective relief for individuals suffering from chronic muscle pain and related conditions.

What are Trigger Point Injections?

Trigger Point Injections are a specialized pain management treatment that involves the precise injection of medication into trigger points within muscles. Trigger points are tight knots or bands of muscle fibers that can cause localized or referred pain. By directly targeting these trigger points with a combination of anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medications, trigger point injections work to alleviate muscle tension, reduce pain, and restore normal muscle function.

How Do Trigger Point Injections Work?

During a trigger point injection procedure, our pain management specialist will identify the specific trigger points through a thorough examination and palpation of the affected muscles. Once located, a small needle is inserted directly into the trigger point, and the medication is delivered precisely to the affected area. The medication works to relax the muscle fibers, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain, allowing for improved mobility and function.

Benefits of Trigger Point Injections:

  1. Targeted Pain Relief: Trigger Point Injections provide targeted relief by directly addressing the source of your muscle pain. By releasing tension in the trigger points, these injections can effectively alleviate muscle pain and discomfort.

  2. Improved Range of Motion: Chronic muscle pain can significantly restrict your range of motion. Trigger Point Injections can help to relax tight muscles, increase flexibility, and improve your ability to perform daily activities and engage in physical exercise.

  3. Non-Surgical and Minimally Invasive: Trigger Point Injections offer a non-surgical and minimally invasive approach to pain management. The procedure is performed in our office setting, and most patients experience minimal discomfort during and after the injections.

  4. Personalized Treatment Approach: At Still Well Pain Management, we take a personalized approach to trigger point injections. Our pain management specialists will carefully evaluate your condition, medical history, and pain management goals to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs.

Trigger Point Injections Frequently Asked Questions

Trigger point injections are commonly used to treat various conditions, including muscle pain, myofascial pain syndrome, tension headaches, fibromyalgia, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Our pain management specialists will evaluate your specific condition to determine if trigger point injections are an appropriate treatment option for you.

The procedure itself is relatively quick and well-tolerated by most patients. While you may experience some mild discomfort during the injection, our specialists use local anesthesia to numb the area, minimizing any pain or discomfort. Many patients report feeling relief and a decrease in pain immediately following the injection.

The effectiveness and timing of pain relief can vary among individuals. Some patients experience immediate relief after the injection, while for others, it may take a few days for the full effects to be felt. It’s important to note that trigger point injections are often performed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, which may include additional therapies or lifestyle modifications to maximize the benefits.

The number of trigger point injection sessions required will depend on your specific condition and response to treatment. While some patients experience significant relief after a single session, others may require multiple injections over several weeks or months to achieve optimal results. Our pain management specialists will work closely with you to determine the appropriate treatment plan based on your individual needs.

After the injection, you may experience some soreness or mild bruising at the injection site, but this typically resolves within a few days.
