Trigger Point Injections

Muscle Injections Get Right to the Point

Trigger Point Injections, which are strategically inserted into areas of muscle by one of our doctors, are effective at relieving pain, muscle spasms and inflammation. A trigger point can be best described as a muscle “knot” that is painful because of muscle tightness and tension. Trigger points form when muscles cannot relax. They can also restrict blood flow and nerve signals, causing referred pain, including headaches and chronic pain conditions.

Corticosteroid vs. Traumeel Injections

Both corticosteroids and Traumeel are effective trigger point injection formulas. Corticosteroids are a class of steroid hormones, while Traumeel is a natural, homeopathic botanical/mineral remedy. Our doctor can discuss which one best suits your individual needs. Trigger point injections help soothe muscle pain, with results lasting for several months. 

PRP Therapy Stimulates Regeneration

PRP therapy is a regenerative treatment that uses a patient’s own blood to repair damaged tissue. After a patient’s blood is drawn, it is placed in a centrifuge to separate the protein-rich plasma, which is plentiful in proteins called growth factors. The platelet-rich plasma gets injected into the problem area, prompting the body to begin the regenerative healing process. The effects are long-lasting and often permanent.
