How Trigger Point Injections Improve Back Pain

Back pain and muscle stiffness can put a damper on your day, from making it difficult to get up in the morning to difficulty concentrating at work. Woywood Integrated Medicine helps you get out of pain with trigger point injection therapy.

What Are Trigger Point Injections?

When you experience muscle pain, you may have a specific “knot” or part of the body that causes your discomfort. You may be able to feel this knot under the skin in the form of a tender bump, making your local muscle groups stiff and painful to move in certain ways. That knot is called a trigger point.

Trigger point injections help your muscles release these knots, reduce pain and inflammation, and help you get moving again. Injections only take a few minutes and are shown to successfully treat numerous conditions.

A Natural Way to Treat Back Pain

An excellent alternative to surgery and prescription drugs for many, trigger point injections provide fast, lasting back pain relief. Injections contain numbing agents so you experience little to no discomfort during the outpatient procedure, and studies show that trigger point injections have a very high success rate for providing pain relief.

While trigger point therapy is most commonly used to treat back pain, it can be used on several muscle groups. Patients can relieve pain points in the neck, legs, arms, and even use injections to treat tension headaches. We are excited to offer our patients this innovative pain relief treatment at an affordable price.
