What Are Trigger Point Injections?

Trigger point injections (TPI) are an effective method to reduce pain in some patients. The treatment targets trigger points, which are knots in the muscles that don’t relax properly. When these trigger points are inflamed, they can create pain in the surrounding areas, or send incorrect nerve signals to other parts of the body, leading to widespread pain.  

Utilizing trigger point injections is a matter of carefully injecting the areas of tension using a sterile needle. This therapy is often painless and provides instant relief, the benefits of which grow the more treatments you receive. Healing substances are injected into the trigger point, including: 

  • Sterile water or saline
  • Traumeel, arnica and other homeopathic injectables
  • Anesthetics like procaine and lidocaine
  • Nutrients such as magnesium and vitamin B12

Each offers unique health benefits. We’ll help you select the ideal remedy depending on your symptoms, health condition and other factors.   

Here’s a glimpse at what a typical appointment looks like:

  • First, you’ll visit one of our team members at a private consultation where we’ll gather basic information about your health. We’ll ask you questions regarding your health condition, such as when it began and the pain’s intensity. 
  • After confirming that TPI is a good option for you, we’ll schedule a date for the injections, and you’ll arrive at your appointment.  
  • We’ll have you sit or lie down, and we’ll figure out the exact location in the muscle where the pain is coming from. 
  • Next, we’ll insert a sterile needle directly into the trigger point. There is minimal pain involved. 
  • Complications are uncommon, although you may have slight discomfort at the injection site following the treatment. 

After the injection, you can use your muscles right away, so there is no downtime. However, avoid any strenuous physical activity for a few days. Our chiropractors will provide the information specific to your situation to ensure your procedure is a success. 

Who Benefits From Trigger Point Injections?

TPI is a highly versatile treatment that is effective on numerous health conditions that cause pain and associated symptoms. It can be applied to your back, neck, legs and arms, as well as other areas. Health conditions that affect the muscles and nerves are most commonly treated using trigger point injections since the procedure directly targets the source of the pain. For instance, patients with migraines or those who have fibromyalgia can benefit from TPI since it has a high success rate and is very safe. This treatment is also a great option for those with painful conditions that do not react to other methods, such as myofascial pain syndrome.
