What are Trigger Point Injections?
A Trigger Point Injection (TPI) is an outpatient procedure that is designed to reduce or relieve the pain of trigger points. Trigger points are small, tender knots that can form in muscles or the fascia (the soft, stretchy connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs). A Trigger Point Injection is an effective, non-surgical procedure for pain that only takes a few minutes to complete right in our office.
Trigger Point Injections are used to treat several different groups of muscles and conditions that cause pain. Some of the most common include:
- Lower back pain
- Neck Pain
- Tension headaches
- Myofascial Pain Syndrome
- Other chronic pain conditions
