Trigger Point Injection
Pain Management & Spine Specialist in Las Vegas, Nevada
A trigger point injection helps relieve muscle pain in the arms, legs, back and neck.
Trigger points are painful “knots” in the muscles that form when a muscle remains tense. These knots may be felt when rubbing the muscle.
Trigger points can be caused by injury, strain from everyday activities, and body mechanics. Patients can develop trigger points in the buttocks, upper back, lower back, and neck.
Injecting small amounts of anesthetic and a steroid into a trigger point can provide pain relief.
