Trigger Point Injections

Trigger points are one of the most common causes of myofascial pain. Trigger points often stem from knots that develop when muscle tension lingers, which affects the surrounding nerves. This can arise from stress, muscle injuries or repetitive strain and can cause referred pain at sites throughout the body. Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine offers Trigger Point Injections as a direct approach treating muscle pain. These pain relieving injections serve as a useful complement to Physical Therapy, Chiropractic and Manual Therapy treatment.

Trigger Point Injections

Trigger Point Injections are a relatively easy procedure. The medical provider simply inserts a small needle into the trigger point, injecting a plant-based solution to dull the pain. The solution renders the trigger point inactive, providing straightaway relief in most cases. This procedure takes just a matter of minutes and can produce sustained results after just one injection. Furthermore, this modality effectively treats pain in common muscle groups including the neck, back, shoulders and arms, among others.

Trigger Point Injections are covered by most health insurance and are also available at our self pay prices.
