Trigger point injections for Neck, Shoulder, Elbow and Back pain

Trigger point injection (TPI) is a procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, which are knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax. TPI can treat myofascial pain syndrome by relieving trigger points in muscles of the neck, shoulders, elbows, and lower back.

The goal of TPI is to relieve pain and tightness of muscles to relieve pain and help you increase activities such as stretching, exercises, physical therapy, function, activities of daily living, and work.

TPI involves a small needle that is used to inject a local anesthetic that can reduce the pain of trigger points. If you have any allergies or do not want to use a local anesthetic, TPI can be performed without the medication, in which case, a needle is used without the injection of any medications.
