Trigger Point Injections

Myofascial trigger points are one of the more common causes of muscle pain in many patients. Trigger points stem from knots that develop when muscles don’t relax, often affecting the surrounding nerves. This can cause referred pain at remote sites throughout the body. Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine offers Trigger Point Injections as a more direct approach treating muscle pain, when Chiropractic Care and Physical Therapy don’t have the desired effects.

Treatment Protocol:

Trigger Point Injections involve insertion of a small needle into the trigger point, typically containing an anesthetic or corticosteroid. 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. Furthermore, this modality is effective in treating common muscle groups including the neck, back, arms and legs.

Patients interested in trigger point injections should first schedule an evaluation with one of the medical providers at Austin Preferred. The Nurse Practitioner will readily administer the injection if it’s recommended as part of your treatment.
