Trigger Point Injection

When pain is not in a joint but rather in a muscle that has “knotted up” and will not relax, a trigger point injection may be used as a treatment option. Trigger point injections direct small amounts of medication directly into the trigger point to help ease the pain. This treatment can be used in muscles in the neck, arms, lower back, and legs, and may also be considered for fibromyalgia and tension headaches.
