Trigger point injections involve the injection of pain relievers and anti-inflammatories into muscular spasms, knots, and adhesions in the neck, back, or extremities. The injections include lidocaine (numbing medicine) and Traumeel, an all-natural anti-inflammatory that also promotes healing within the soft tissues.
Trigger point Injections involve the use of a fine-gauge needle (not much larger than an acupuncture needle) which is injected directly into the involved muscle, providing instant and long-lasting results. This procedure does not involve the injections of corticosteroids (such as cortisone). Studies have shown this to be an effective therapy in relieving chronic pain.
