Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections can help soothe myofascial pain, especially in your neck, shoulder, arms, legs and lower back.
When a muscle becomes stiff, torn, or bruised, the point of origin for the injury is known as the “trigger point”. A trigger point injection contains a mixture of medications that helps the muscle relax and reduce inflammation. As the medication does its work, blood flow will improve and the body will start to heal itself.
What are the benefits of trigger point injections?
Trigger point injections are generally safe and can provide pain relief to people who have been experiencing pain associated with trigger points and have not found relief using more conservative treatments, like over-the-counter pain medication or physical therapy.
Trigger point injections can also provide significant improvement in range of motion and overall muscle functionality, depending on which muscle is affected.
Steroid injections are a type of treatment that delivers a high dose of medication directly to a problem spot in the body. Corticosteroids can help reduce inflammation. Injections can be helpful in treating conditions like tendinitis, bursitis and carpal tunnel.
What are the benefits of steroid injections?
The main benefits to the patient are to decrease pain and increase function. Steroid injections often reduce joint inflammation, helping preserve joint structure and function.
Steroid injections may help avoid the need for oral steroids or increased doses of oral steroids, which could have greater side effects. Local injections are generally well-tolerated and are less likely to produce serious side effects than other forms of steroid medications.
