TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS

Unlocking Relief: Understanding Trigger Point Injections for Pain Management

Living with chronic pain can greatly impact your quality of life, making everyday activities a challenge. If you're seeking effective pain relief, trigger point injections could be the solution you've been looking for. At Accelerate Medical, we specialize in providing relief through trigger point injections, helping you regain control and comfort.

What Are Trigger Points?

Trigger points are tight knots of muscle fibers that form when muscles are overworked, injured, or stressed. These knots can cause pain, discomfort, and referred pain to other areas of the body. They are commonly found in muscles that are frequently used or strained, leading to pain that can be debilitating.

 

The Trigger Point Injection Procedure

Trigger point injections are a minimally invasive procedure aimed at reducing pain and muscle tension. Here's what you can expect during the process:

  1. Diagnosis: Our medical professionals identify trigger points through a physical examination and discussion of your symptoms.

  2. Preparation: The skin above the trigger point is cleaned and sterilized to prevent infection.

  3. Injection: A local anesthetic or a combination of anesthetic and corticosteroid is injected directly into the trigger point. This helps relax the muscle and alleviate pain.

  4. Observation: You will be monitored for a short period after the injection to ensure there are no adverse reactions.

Benefits of Trigger Point Injections

Quick Relief
Many individuals experience immediate pain relief due to the numbing effect of the anesthetic.
Muscle Relaxation
The injection helps release tension in the muscle, promoting relaxation.
Improved Range of Motion
Reduced muscle tightness leads to increased mobility and flexibility.
Non-Surgical Solution
Trigger point injections are a non surgical option, minimizing risks and downtime.

Conditions Treated with Trigger Point Injections

Trigger point injections are effective for various conditions, including:
Myofascial Pain Syndrome
Chronic muscle pain caused by trigger points.
Fibromyalgia
Widespread pain and tenderness often associated with trigger points.
Tension Headaches

    Dr. Stauss has been the best. He always makes me feel like a person and not a patient. He knows what he is doing and is always willing to listen to issues and answer questions I have. I have seen many doctors for my pain and none of them have been as helpful as him and his staff.

    The thought of never being able to work again let alone participate in physical activity was depressing. Dr. Stauss went over the available options. I can tell you it changed my life. It enabled me to continue working and participate in some physical activities! I can't thank Dr. Stauss and his physician assistant P.A. Greg Cavanaugh enough. They have bought me 10 yrs. of relative normalcy. I would highly recommend both of them. Thank you.
