Trigger Point Injections

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

Treatment Protocol:

Trigger Point Injections involve insertion of a small needle into the trigger point which contains 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 after just one injection. Furthermore, this modality effectively treats pain in common muscle groups including the neck, back, arms and legs, among others.
