Trigger points are tiny knots in the myofascial tissue that covers your muscles. Active trigger points can cause a substantial amount of pain and discomfort. They may be tender and painful to the touch, or they may cause referred pain, a type of pain that’s felt far from the trigger point itself. Trigger point pain is often described as a kind of regional, persistent pain that spreads or radiates. Myofascial trigger points may develop after acute muscle trauma or a series of repeated traumas. They also develop if you don’t get enough exercise or if you’ve been inactive for a long time. Sleep disorders, poor posture, and nutritional deficiencies also lead to the formation of painful trigger points.

This quick, in-office procedure starts with a comprehensive examination to determine the locations and magnitude of your trigger points. During the procedure, you can expect the following:
Most patients experience immediate pain relief following trigger point injection therapy. Afterward, it’s important to keep your muscles active by performing the recommended exercises and stretches.
