Trigger Point Injections

Trigger Point Injections

A trigger point forms when a muscle becomes tight and fails to relax. The knot can often be felt under the skin and may twitch involuntarily when touched. A trigger point can irritate surrounding nerves as well as cause referred pain (pain felt in another part of the body). A small needle is inserted into the trigger point and a local anesthetic (e.g., lidocaine, bupivacaine) with or without a corticosteroid is injected. Injection of medication inactivates the trigger point and thus alleviates pain. Sustained relief usually is achieved with a brief course of treatment. The injection may cause a twitch or pain that lasts a few seconds to a few minutes.
