Trigger Point Injections

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

Trigger Point Injections in Austin

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 temporarily inactive, providing immediate relief in most cases. Furthermore, this modality effectively treats pain in many common muscle groups including the neck, back, shoulders, and arms, among others. This procedure takes just a matter of minutes and can produce sustained results after just one injection.  Injections can be repeated as needed.
