Are Trigger Point Injections right for you?

Trigger points can play a major role in back pain. Trigger points are painful “knots” of muscle that form when a muscle can’t relax. Sometimes you can feel these knots under your skin when you rub your muscle.

A trigger point injection is a procedure used to help soothe muscle pain, especially in the following muscle groups: arms, legs, lower back and neck. It also can be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches and myofascial pain. A needle is inserted into the trigger point and is injected with a local anesthetic that sometimes includes a corticosteroid to reduce inflammation.
