What are Trigger Point Injections?

A trigger point injection can help soothe muscle pain, especially in your arms, legs, lower back, and neck. It also can be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches and myofascial pain. Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles. They form when a muscle cannot relax.

In a trigger point injection procedure, a local anesthetic (sometimes with a steroid) is injected into the trigger point to relieve the pain. It usually takes only a few treatments to relieve trigger point pain. It is a relatively simple, safe procedure. It gives patients enough relief to participate in physical therapy. The use of physical therapy is important in preventing a re-injury.

Joint Injections may decrease the accumulation of fluid and cells in the joint and may temporarily decrease pain and stiffness. Many of the major joints (i.e. shoulder, knee, hip, etc.) of the body are susceptible to arthritic pain due to aging, repetitive use or injury. Joint Injections may be given to treat inflammatory joint conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, tendonitis, bursitis and occasionally osteoarthritis.

Injections and Nerve Blocks are more effective for treating acute pain. When a group of nerves are causing pain to a specific organ or body region, the pain can be blocked with injections of a local anesthetic. The Ramos Center for interventional & functional pain medicine uses Nerve Blocks effectively in conditions such as RSD, nerve entrapments, pudendal pain, ilioinguinal groin pain, intercostal pain, supraescapular nerve, neuromas, occipital neuralgia, etc.
