Trigger Point Injections

- Thursday, September 20, 2018
Comprehensive Pain Management in Attleboro, MA

A trigger point injection is an outpatient procedure designed to reduce or relieve the back pain caused by trigger points. These small knots can form in muscles or in the fascia tissue leading to myofascial pain.

This outpatient procedure is designed to reduce or relieve the pain of trigger points. These small tender knots can form in muscles or fascia, which is the soft stretchy connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs.

The trigger point injection procedure takes only a few minutes to complete. The physician squeezes and presses the skin to find the trigger point. Once identified a topical anesthetic may be used. The physician inserts a needle through the skin and into the trigger point.

An anesthetic mix is injected into the trigger point. This causes it to relax. If the trigger point doesn't relax completely after the first injection, the physician may reposition the needle for one or more injections. A small bandage is placed over the injection site and the patient is encouraged to stretch and move afterwards.
