Muscle Knots & Pains
A trigger point is a “knot” in the muscle or a spot of sensitivity in the tissue surrounding the muscle. These areas can cause significant muscle cramps, which can lead to pain in the neck, back, and other areas of the body. At Lewis Physical & Pain Medicine, our doctors provides trigger point injection therapy for patients who are experiencing muscle pain due to trigger points. A trigger point injection involves injecting a combination of an anesthetic and a cortisone steroid into the trigger point and works to diminish pain and make the trigger point inactive.
Contact our Frisco, TX office by calling (214) 613-0960 to learn more about trigger point injections and how they can relieve muscle pain.
Am I An Ideal Candidate?
Trigger points can be caused by overuse of the muscle, injury, and trauma. They can also be due to a chronic condition, such as fibromyalgia or myofascial pain syndrome. In some cases, trigger points may occur in the form of tension headaches, tinnitus, temporomandibular joint pain, decreased range of motion, and low back pain. Dr. Lewis may first suggest physical therapy or other forms of less invasive treatment for minor trigger points or as an initial treatment option before suggesting trigger point injections.
Our team performs trigger point injections as an in-office procedure. The entire procedure only takes a few minutes and several areas can be treated in just one visit. Dr. Lewis may mark the area being treated before injecting the anesthetic and cortisone steroid medication into the affected areas. Patients should be able to leave the office directly following their treatment
Patients can expect to feel pain relief shortly after the injections because of the anesthetic. In many cases, only a one-time injection procedure can help resolve a trigger point. However, if the trigger point was caused by a chronic condition, regular injections may be required to maintain results. We will work with you to create an appropriate treatment plan most effective for your unique condition.
