What Are Trigger Point Injections?

Trigger point injections are the injection of an anti-inflammatory compound and anesthetic to break up the small bits of scar tissue that build up in the muscles and cause chronic stiffness and pain. The injection of a small amount of fluid helps to relax the muscle and stimulate the body’s natural healing response.

Trigger point injections are helpful to people who suffer from chronically stiff and painful necks and backs. Often muscle knots are caused by poor posture from sitting at a desk all day or looking down at a phone or tablet all day.

The goal of trigger point injections is to help relieve not only aching muscles and pain but to help the body to heal the underlying condition causing the pain. Trigger point injections work well when combined with postural correction, chiropractic, massage and rehab.
