Myofascial Pain Treatment
If you are looking for expert Myofascial pain treatment, you can turn to the experienced physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. We offer myofascial injections, also known as “trigger point injections” as well as a variety of other proven and effective treatments for Myofascial Pain Disorder. A myofascial injection is an advanced interventional treatment that involves injecting an anesthetic and sometimes a corticosteroid into the trigger points in the muscle, under the guidance of Fluoroscopy. This procedure can be effective in releasing the knots in muscles that are causing chronic and referred pain.
The physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are experts when it comes to administering trigger point injections. Using this minimally invasive technique, we are able to help athletes who suffer from Myofascial Pain Syndrome find long-term pain relief and improved function so they can return to an active and healthy lifestyle and once again participate in the sports and other activities they enjoy.
