Trigger Point Injections

If you have been suffering with pain for more than three months and painkillers haven’t worked then these injections could significantly ease pain and allow a more fluid and pain-free movement. Your doctor can easily identify the trigger points by touching them; this then informs the suitability of the treatment.

The Procedure

The trigger point is identified by your doctor who will press the skin with a thumb and finger which can be a little uncomfortable. He or she will then clean the skin with a sterile wipe.

The injection is then put directly into the trigger point and usually contains a local anaesthetic, sometimes together with a steroid or another medicine. In some cases, the local anaesthetic may be injected into the skin over the trigger point. An ultrasound will often be used to guide the injection.

After the injection/side effects

You may feel some discomfort as the local anaesthetic wears off. You will also be given some exercises to do to encourage you to move and stretch t Setting the standard for private healthcare he affected muscle.
