Muscle & Joint Injections
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections are done to reduce or relieve muscle pain induced by trigger points . These small, tender knots can form in muscles or in the fascia (the soft, stretchy connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs). They are often done when manual or massage therapy do not provide sufficient relief. Trigger point injections can be done within minutes and are very safe.
