Trigger Point Injections

What are Trigger Point Injections?

Trigger Point Injections (TPIs) have been widely used to facilitate this process and are the gold standard for the treatment of MPS. They are relatively safe when performed by clinicians with appropriate training.

What should I expect during Trigger Point Injections?

During the Trigger Point Injection procedure, the doctor will identify the trigger points by feeling them. After cleaning the area with an alcohol swab, the doctor will place a thin needle into the trigger point and move it around to break up the knot. As the doctor is moving the needle around, he or she will inject numbing medicine into the area.

What should I do after the Trigger Point Injections?

Post-injection stretching, kneading, and movement are an important part of the procedure. The patient should plan to go home or to physical therapy in order to get the maximum benefit from the procedure.
