Trigger Point Release Treatment
Trigger point release treatment is an advanced interventional therapy that can be used to treat painful areas of muscle that form when muscles do not relax (trigger points). When trigger points form, it can irritate the nerves around them and cause referred pain (pain that is felt in another part of the body). Injecting a steroid and anesthetic into trigger points can serve to relax the muscle and alleviate the pain. This interventional therapy is currently being used to treat a variety of chronic pain disorders including Fibromyalgia, tension headaches and Myofascial Pain Syndrome.
The pain specialists from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly experienced in administering trigger point injections. Using this minimally invasive technique, we are able to help many patients with chronic pain find relief from their symptoms and an improved quality of life.
