About Trigger Point Injections
A trigger point is an irritable, painful, taut muscle band or palpable knot in a muscle that can cause localized pain or referred pain. Referred pain from trigger points can mimic pinched nerves in the neck or lower back. They can occur from direct muscle injuries, poor posture, repetitive strain or secondarily from spine conditions such as a herniated disc.
What are Trigger point Injections? Trigger point injections are injections of local anesthetic (numbing) medication, saline and may involve very low dose cortisone. The basis for a trigger point injection is to relax the area of an intense muscle spasm. By relaxing the muscle spasm, blood flow to the area is improved, thus allowing the washout of irritating metabolites.
