Trigger points are adhesions in soft tissue that cause undue tension in our bodies. This results in a disruption in our structure causing the body to come out of alignment.
Trigger points decrease blood flow, creating toxins and increasing nerve sensitivity that can range from an ache to extremely sharp pain.
Trigger point injections are an effective treatment option for these symptoms. Using clinically proven solutions with known healing properties that reduce inflammation and swelling, the solution is injected locally into the site of pain to flush toxins out of your system. You and your doctor can determine if and how many injections you need.
Common Symptoms of a Trigger Point
- Muscle aches and pain
- Headaches that seem to pull from the neck up to the head
- Severe unrelenting pain
- Limited range of motion in joints
- Shoulder pain
- Low back pain
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
For up to 48 hours following your trigger point injection, you may need to avoid strenuous physical activities to give your muscles time to react to the injection. Most of our patients return to work the same day with little to no downtime.
