Trigger Point Injections- Woodstock, Georgia
Trigger Points are the tight bands of muscles that may be felt as a knot. Trigger points can restrict movement and cause muscle weakness and may cause referred and/or radiating pain.
Our patients get excellent results with our Trigger Point Injection Treatments. Trigger Point Therapy takes just a few minutes, and is performed by our Medical Doctor.
The medicine we use in Trigger Point Therapy is a plant based, non-toxic, biological anti-inflammatory medicine called SARAPIN. SARAPIN is an alternative to corticosteroids and cortisone injections, in that it does not damage or weaken cartilage, bones or tendons.
Patients receiving this therapy are amazed at the results. If you suffer with Trigger Points, call us today at 770-926-9495 to see if you are a candidate for this treatment
Request An Appointment
This outpatient procedure is designed to reduce or relieve the pain of trigger points. These small, tender knots can form in muscles or in the fascia (the soft, stretchy connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs). The trigger point injection procedure takes only a few minutes to complete.
In preparation for the procedure, the patient is positioned comfortably. The physician presses and pinches the skin to locate the trigger point. Once it has been identified, the physician cleanses the overlying skin. A topical
anesthetic may be used to temporarily numb the skin.
The physician carefully inserts a needle through the skin and into the trigger point. The physician injects an anesthetic mixture into the trigger point. This causes the trigger point to relax. If the trigger point does not relax
completely after the first injection, the physician may adjust the needle’s position and give additional injections.
End of Procedure
When the injection is complete, the physician removes the needle. A small bandage may be placed over the injection site. The patient may be encouraged to stretch and move the muscle after the injection.
