Do you suffer from muscle pain that gets worse upon touch? You are likely a candidate for trigger point injections. As a very effective treatment for pain relief, the injection may provide immediate relief.
Trigger Point Injections
A trigger point is a tight band or knot in the muscle. The knot forms when the muscle cannot relax and causes the muscle to twitch involuntarily. This irritates the nerves causing a referred pain. Referred pain is pain that is felt in a part of the body that may be away from the source of the pain. These injections are used for patients dealing with chronic headaches, fibromyalgia or myofascial syndrome.
