Trigger Point Injections

Trigger Point Injections

Very often, you can’t manage or relieve continuing pain with at-home methods, over-the-counter pain relievers or other alternative methods. When you visit a top-rated pain doctor in Manhattan, you first receive a diagnosis so you know where your pain originates, and then you’re provided the latest pain treatment options available, such as trigger point injections. At New York pain management, your pain doctor listens to your concerns and works diligently to help you live pain-free.

Triggers aren’t just psychological. Trigger points are small knots that form in your skeletal muscles or in the tissue surrounding muscles called fascia. Trigger points can lead to chronic pain, headaches and other muscle pain.

Trigger points are sensitive, so any pressure on them causes localized pain or referred pain. You feel referred pain in another part of your body, away from the trigger point or injury. Trigger points may occur due to a number of factors, such as:

  • Micro-traumas from repetitive motion
  • Acute injury
  • Muscle tension from stress
  • Inflammation

Triggered Chain of Events

Trigger points form when a normal muscle, one that relaxes and contracts, is strained or stressed and can’t relax. This causes a focal spot or knot in the affected muscle. In turn, these spots can be the reason for many painful conditions, including:

How Trigger Point Injections Work

Trigger point injections give you relief. The process puts an injectable substance into a contracted muscle, causing it to relax and lengthen. The procedure itself and the chemical reactions of the injectable ease muscle pain.

If you have symptomatic trigger points, which means trigger points that give you pain at rest, are tender when touched and have a specific referred pain pattern, then myofascial trigger point injections may help. Other criteria include:

  • Having a trigger point that produces a twitch response
  • Not being able to get relief from other treatments

Diagnosing Your Triggers

If you have persistent or worsening deep muscle aches, tender knots in your muscles, or difficulty sleeping due to pain, trigger point injections from your top-rated pain management doctor at injury clinic New York may provide relief. Your doctor takes a brief medical history and gives you an examination. Both tell your pain doctor if you have a trigger point.

Diagnosis is based mostly on your pain pattern, but it also includes the most advanced diagnostic equipment and fast, accurate lab testing, when needed. Trigger point injections may be recommended based on your history, particularly when other at-home treatment methods have failed.
