Trigger Point Injection is one of the most common pain management treatments for various kinds of muscle pain. This kind of treatment is used to target the trigger points or painful knots that form when muscles do not relax.
Trigger points are muscle spasms that can be found throughout the body, but these painful knots are usually located in the back and shoulders. In a trigger point injection procedure, a healthcare professional such as a physiatrist will inject anesthetics, or sometimes corticosteroid, into the trigger point using a small needle.
A Trigger Point Injection is a very safe procedure that effectively provides relief to muscle pain. Complications are very uncommon for this kind of pain treatment. While patients may feel pain post-injection, this will subside after a few days.
Trigger Point Injections are commonly considered as outpatient care are not done only by the bigger hospitals but also independent pain management clinics. When you visit a doctor in an office or hospital that he or she doesn’t own, you will be paying for the facility fees. This will add additional cost on your medical bill, making the procedure considerably more expensive. We offer affordable Trigger Point Injections because the procedure will be done in a private office. You will get the same effective treatment for pain management at Wellness First Medical Center that hospitals and bigger medical practices provide by paying less.
If you believe you could benefit from high-quality care, consider getting treatment from the staff at Wellness First Medical Center. Our dedicated staff will be pleased to answer your questions today. We can also help you schedule a time to visit our Dickinson, TX office.
