Trigger Point Injections Q&A

How do trigger point injections work?

Trigger point injections target muscle knots. These knots, known as trigger points, develop when your muscle can’t relax and is prone to spasms. Because trigger points are known for causing debilitating pain and discomfort, injections may help.

Trigger point injections involve inserting a small needle directly into the knots. The injection contains a mixture of steroid and anesthetic solutions. This combination of medications provides quick relief from pain, while also bringing long-lasting anti-inflammatory effects.

What can trigger point injections treat?

Trigger point injections from ReacTvate Vitality and Wellness Center are entirely tailored to you. Dr. Black examines you and talks with you about your symptoms, so he can determine the precise locations where he needs to inject the pain-relieving solution. 

Dr. Black finds that trigger point injections are beneficial for treating and minimizing effects from:

  • Tension headaches
  • Myofascial pain
  • Fibromyalgia 

Trigger point injections are even highly effective for resolving lower back and neck pain, especially if you’ve experienced injury or trauma. 

Not only are trigger point injections from ReacTvate Vitality and Wellness Center fast-acting, but treatments are also quick and take just a few minutes. 

When can I expect results with trigger point injections?

Trigger point injections themselves sometimes cause a very brief moment of stinging or burning. However, the numbing solution quickly sets in and discomfort resolves. 

You should notice an improvement in your symptoms immediately or shortly after getting your trigger point injections at ReacTvate Vitality and Wellness Center.

As the medicine continues to take effect, your pain and discomfort should keep improving over the course of several hours. Dr. Black typically recommends avoiding strenuous activities for at least a day or two after getting trigger point injections. 

Depending on the severity of your underlying condition, trigger point injections can provide relief for a few weeks or even several months. If pain returns, you can come back to ReacTvate Vitality and Wellness Center to see if another trigger point injection session may help.
