What are Trigger Point Injections?

If you’re dealing with muscle pain, especially caused by myofascial pain, it can be difficult to function. The pain can occur in your neck, shoulder, arms, legs, and lower back and can feel like knots in your muscles that are sensitive to any touch or pressure. Often, this pain occurs after trauma to the muscles and you will want to find out how you can get relief from this pain. Dr. Enrique Umpierre-Schuck at Central Florida Pain and Rehab Clinic in Winter Park, FL, can explain how trigger point injections work and how they can help ease your pain.

What are Trigger Point Injections?

Trigger point injections from your doctor in Winter Park, FL, can help soothe myofascial pain and relieve some of the tension that you may experience because of this pain. Trigger-point injections involve injections of a local anesthetic that can be combined with a corticosteroid. This helps relieve some of your pain and other symptoms that could be caused by these trigger points.

If you find that you’re experiencing headaches from pain caused by these trigger points, trigger point injections could be helpful so that you can start getting relief from those headaches and continue with your normal life. Dealing with trigger point pain can make daily activities extremely difficult. You may find that it’s hard to function while you’re in severe pain and you might be missing out on work or on some of your favorite activities.

Trigger point injections are quick, and you’ll be able to go home right after the procedure. There is very little downtime associated with these injections, but you should avoid strenuous activity for a few days.
