Trigger Point Injections
If you have suffered a sports injury or other physical injury, resulting in painful spasms, it could be time for treatment with trigger point injections at Spinal Diagnostics & Regenerative Medicine. Trigger points are an area of muscle injury that is in continual spasm. This causes localized pain, as well as referred pain. Once a trigger point is identified, the pain management physicians at Spinal Diagnostics & Regenerative Medicine can inject it under ultrasound guidance and achieve quick relief.
The Trigger Point Injection Process
The area is sterilely prepped and confirmed with palpation and ultrasound. A small needle is gently advanced into the focal area of spasm and gently injected with local anesthetic and steroid, thereby breaking up the spasm and allowing blood flow and healing. Patients usually feel very good the first day, due to the local anesthetic. They often feel a bit sore on day two from the mild trauma of the injection. After this blood flow can reach the injured area, healing commences. The procedure is low risk and well tolerated. Trigger point injections require no sedation and can be done in the Colorado Springs office at Spinal Diagnostics & Regenerative Medicine.
