Trigger Point Injections For Muscle Pain
An Innovative Wellness Solutions physician will insert a small needle directly into the muscle group causing discomfort. This injection will make the trigger point inactive, alleviating the pain. Often, a brief course of treatment will eliminate the pain. Multiple muscle groups may be injected during the same visit.
Trigger Point Injections are administered on site at one of our clinics. Pain is subjective, however the vast majority of patients who have received injections have noted the experience is relatively painless. The injection will be placed directly into the troublesome muscle. Stretching and exercising the area after treatment is strongly recommended.
