Trigger point injections are a specialized medical procedure designed to alleviate localized pain and muscle tension. They are particularly effective for individuals dealing with muscle knots or “trigger points,” which can also affect local joints and be a source of persistent discomfort. One of our skilled medical providers will conduct a thorough examination to pinpoint specific areas of muscle tightness and tenderness, known as trigger points. These trigger points are often the culprits behind the pain. Using a fine needle, the healthcare provider injects a solution directly into the identified trigger point. This solution contains a combination of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, and vitamin B12 to help the muscle relax. The injected solution serves two key purposes. First, it provides rapid pain relief by numbing the trigger point. Second, it promotes muscle relaxation, allowing the tight muscle fibers to release their grip.
