Trigger Point Injection Therapy
Trigger Point Injections are used to break the cycle of muscle spasms that happen in the muscle fibers when they have been contracted or strained for a long period of time. Once the scar tissue (commonly known as 'knots') forms, it will take decreasing inflammation, stretching, and strengthening to help heal that muscle.
The goal of trigger point therapy is to allow the muscle to regain elasticity and become stretchy, contracting, and replacing fibers as it is meant to be. A numbing medicine (lidocaine) is used to decrease inflammation and allow the muscle to get the therapy it needs. We also offer a homeopathic injection therapy, during which a therapeutic solution comprised of several homeopathic remedies is introduced to the body. These injections differ from traditional therapies in that they do not treat the symptoms of a patient’s musculoskeletal condition directly. Instead, they revive the body’s natural healing processes so that it may fight off pain and inflammation naturally.
Trigger Point Injection Therapy may be used in place of, or in conjunction with, other traditional pain remedies. The procedure is minimally invasive and is generally performed using a very small needle, minimizing the patient’s discomfort.
