Trigger point injection therapy is a treatment used to relieve the pain and stiffness caused by small tense points in your muscle structure. These are called “trigger points” and are often sensitive to the touch.
Trigger points are like small knots in your muscles that keep an area of the body tense and unable to relax. This prolonged stress can cause injury and damage. Because of the tension, these areas are also slow to heal.
Trigger point injection therapy targets these tense knots and relaxes them with a small injection. Most patients report immediate relief.
