Trigger Point Injections

Muscle spasms is often responsible for pain and patients may have a long term connection from sports injuries, abnormal positions, postures at work activities or related to diseases like fibromyalgia. The involved muscles often feel hard, tight, and knotty—usually having a decreased motion. The pain physician will inject the tender areas with pain medication (and possibly steroids) to reduce spasms, help relax the muscles and decrease pain.
