Trigger Point Injections

Trigger point injections (TPI) are a viable choice for pain relief when trigger points form.

Trigger point areas are where multiple strands of muscle remain contracted and do not relax. As a result, these trigger points agitate nearby nerves who then send pain signals to the brain. 

 

Healthcare specialists deliver TPIs by inserting a small needle directly into the trigger point and injecting an anesthetic to revert the muscle back to its normal state of relaxation.

These injections last only a few minutes and are administered at a healthcare professional's office. TPIs can be performed at multiple trigger point areas in one visit.
