TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS

A Trigger Point Injection is an outpatient procedure designed to reduce or relieve pain caused by trigger points in the body. Small to large knots can form in thee muscle fibers or in the fascia tissue leading to mild to extreme pain.

 

Trigger points are discreet, focal, hyper-irritable spots located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. The spots are painful on compression and can produce referred pain, tenderness, muscle weakness and autonomic dysfunction. Many patients refer to a trigger point as a “knot” in their muscles. Trigger points can be located almost anywhere in the body and can cause a variety of painful symptoms and can be described as active or latent.

At Health4life, our Trigger Point Injections include Cortisone Injections, Intra-articular Joint Injections and  Sacroiliac Joint Injections.
