Another service we offer is trigger point injection Springfield. Our trigger point injection service is yet another possible option to help your injuries and treat your pain. Trigger point injection is a pain treatment in which muscle areas that have trigger points are treated. There are often times knots that form that you can feel when the muscles are not able to relax. Since knots can usually be felt underneath the skin, the trigger points can seriously irritate the nerves around the knots. This causes pain in that area, or even another area in the body.
During a trigger point injection, our medical doctor inserts a tiny needle into your trigger point. The needle has local anesthetic or saline in it. This injection allows the trigger point to become completely inactive, which in result lessens the pain. This procedure does not take long to do, and will result in relief, so it is a win win situation. Injections are given in our practice and will only take a couple minutes. Along with this, a few different sites could be injected in one visit. If you have an allergy to a drug, do not worry. We can use a dry needle technique that can be used that involve no medication.
There are many different muscle groups that can be treated with trigger point injection. These are the arms, legs, low back, and neck. Fibromyalgia, tension headaches, and myofascial pain syndrome (chronic pain that involves tissue that surrounds muscle) that doesn’t have outcomes with other treatments are able to be.
Trigger point injection are continually being researched and studies carried out to investigate further positive outcomes from the therapy. It can be used as an alternative to other treatments or even alongside other treatments while the trigger points are under control and in far less pain. This will help other therapies to be able to be applied to help resolve the issue.
