Muscle Pain Relief
Trigger point injections are a medical treatment for muscle pain or knots in the body. These knots, called trigger points, can be very painful and cause stiffness or weakness.
During the procedure, a doctor will use a small needle to inject medicine directly into the trigger point. The medicine can help relieve pain and relax the muscle.
The procedure usually takes only a few minutes and can be done in a doctor’s office. Most people feel some relief right away, but it may take a few days to feel the full effects of the medicine.
It’s important to talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of trigger point injections before deciding if they’re right for you. Some possible side effects may include pain or bruising at the injection site, but these are usually temporary.
