Trigger point injections help you get relief from your pain in several ways. They relieve pain by targeting the source of your discomfort, which is often right at the site of the trigger point. They reduce inflammation and swelling around the area where you experience pain or discomfort. And they help to relax tense muscles so that they’re less likely to cause problems in the future.
Trigger points are painful knots that can occur anywhere along the This can result in chronic pain that doesn’t always respond to traditional treatments like physical therapy or medication. But trigger point injections shed light on the source of your pain so that you can start treating it effectively before more serious problems develop – including arthritis!
If you have existing conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia, trigger point injections may help alleviate symptoms without causing additional flare-ups or worsening existing conditions.

Trigger point injections are an effective treatment for a variety of pain issues, including back and neck pain. The injections help to reduce the pain and inflammation that can make it difficult to move or engage in daily activities.
The injections are administered by a medical professional at our office. We will evaluate your pain level as well as your current health history before we can give you an idea of how long the treatment will take.
The Pain Behind the Pain
When your body faces a problem, internally or externally, one of its first reactions is a tightening in your muscles. This action is part of your body’s flight-or-fight response and it’s designed to help you in stressful situations. But if this tightening in your muscles doesn’t subside, you’re left with chronic pain.
What causes this? The answer is simple: if the stress isn’t resolved, then your body will go into fight-or-flight mode and tighten up even more. And this can happen over and over again—and it doesn’t take much for that to happen!
So how do you stop this from happening?
Well, if we could just stop stress from causing muscle tension in the first place… we could totally solve this problem! But we can’t just wish away physical pain by wishing away stress—it’s not possible! So instead of wishing away physical pain, let’s learn how to manage our own stress levels so that we don’t need to worry about our muscles getting tight when faced with stress!
Your muscles are made up of many smaller fibers that run throughout the length of your body, from head to toe. These muscles are able to contract and relax in order to move your joints and body parts.
The way that these muscles function is controlled by the nervous system, which consists of nerves coming from all over your body. The nerves send messages through these small fibers to tell them what to do. When you want one part of your muscle to contract, it sends a message to another part of the same muscle, which tells it to contract as well.
Trigger point therapy is a method of treating pain that works by temporarily relieving the pain while you work on changing the root cause of it.
It can be used to treat many different kinds of pain—including back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and headaches—but it’s most commonly used to treat chronic lower-back pain.
The theory behind trigger point therapy is that there are certain muscles in your body that are always tense and that when they’re tense, they send signals through your nervous system telling you to feel pain. The idea is to find these “knots” and release them so that they don’t send those signals anymore.
Trigger point therapy involves applying pressure on specific areas of muscle called “trigger points.” You can use a rolling pin or golf ball on these spots for about five minutes at a time until the knot becomes less painful or goes away completely.
The goal is not necessarily to relieve all pain immediately; instead, the goal is to reduce how often you feel discomfort from these knots over time as you continue to work through them and make changes in your life that will prevent them from occurring in the first place!
Trigger Point Injections: What They Are and How They Work
Trigger point therapy is a form of massage therapy that targets the areas of tension in your muscles, which we call trigger points. The technique works by targeting these areas with injections that typically contain lidocaine, a corticosteroid, and saline.
The lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic, goes to work immediately to quiet the irritated nerves in the area. At the same time, the steroid tackles the inflammation.
Injections of anesthetic and corticosteroid-based drugs can relax your muscles and help your surrounding tissues, nerves, and blood vessels function freely again. If you’d prefer not to have an anesthetic or corticosteroid injection, even dry needle injections may help relax your muscle knots.
We know that having a strained back can be incredibly painful and make it hard to do the things you love. That’s why we offer this treatment, which can help give you back your mobility and freedom. This therapy is very effective at providing our patients with much-needed relief, as well as invaluable time to address the underlying issue. Your body uses this break from the tension to regenerate and repair damaged tissue, and you can do your part by strengthening the muscles in the affected area so they’re less prone to stress and strain.
