wHAT aRE tRIGGER pOINT iNJECTIONS?
Trigger Point Injections are injections of a local anesthetic into areas of a muscle that are contracted and/or tense, such as from myofascial pain (muscular pain). Trigger Point Injections are administered in the paravertebral muscles in the cervical, thoracic, and/or lumbar regions.
wHAT iS tHE pURPOSE OF tRIGGER pOINT iNJECTIONS?
Trigger Point Injections are indicated to relieve pain and tightness caused by trigger points in a muscle. A trigger point is a sensitive area of tight muscle fibers that can form after injury or overuse/misuse. These injections are helpful in relaxing muscle spasms that a patient experiences in their cervical, thoracic, or lumbar regions. The local anesthetic causes the muscle to relax, allowing blood flow to increase to the area and remove lactic acid and other by-products that have built up. Once the trigger point area relaxes, the patient will find it easier to stretch the surrounding muscle areas, which can prolong the positive effect of the injections given.
wHAT aRE tHE mEDICATIONS iNJECTED?
The injection consists of saline and Lidocaine (local anesthetic agent).
