Trigger Point Injections is a procedure used to treat painful areas in a muscle. The procedure is carried out in the doctor’s office in just a few minutes. In the procedure, a small needle is inserted into the patient’s trigger point. The injection contains a local anesthetic or saline, and may include a corticosteroid. The trigger point is made inactive and the pain is alleviated. A course of treatment will help to alleviate the pain long term.
