Trigger Point Injections
Why get Trigger Point Injections? Have you ever felt those tight bands of muscles in your low back or base of your neck? Well, those are active Trigger Points. Trigger Points are tight bands of muscles that may be feel like knots or pressure points in your muscles. Trigger points restrict movement and cause muscle weakness and even cause referred and or radiating pain into the arms, head, neck or low back.
Common causes of trigger points include:
Lack of exercise
Improperly functioning body mechanics
Mental or emotional stress
Ultimately, your body adapts to avoid pain by limiting muscle movement, causing trigger points to occur. You may experience short-term relief as your body tries to heal on its own, but if your pain is ongoing, and you ignore it, you may suffer permanent muscle damage.
Often times trigger points that become chronic cannot be removed with massage or chiropractic care. That’s why our patients get amazing results with our Trigger Point Injection Therapy. This therapy, breaks up any adhesions or tension in the muscles. In addition, it immediately relieves patients of tight, and tender muscle spasm.
