Understanding Work Injuries

Work injuries can result from various causes such as lifting heavy objects, repetitive motions, slips, trips, and falls. These injuries often lead to the development of trigger points, which are tight knots of muscle fibers that can cause localized pain and radiating discomfort.

 

What Are Trigger Point Injections?

What Are Trigger Point Injections? Trigger point injections are a minimally invasive treatment designed to alleviate pain and muscle tension associated with trigger points. During the procedure, a medical professional injects a small amount of anesthetic or a combination of anesthetic and corticosteroid directly into the trigger point. This helps relax the muscle and relieve pain by reducing inflammation and improving blood flow to the area.

Benefits of Trigger Point Injections: Trigger point injections offer several benefits for work injury-related pain:

  • Immediate Pain Relief: Many individuals experience pain relief shortly after the injection due to the numbing effect of the anesthetic.
  • Muscle Relaxation: The injection helps relax the tightened muscle fibers, reducing muscle tension and discomfort.
  • Improved Functionality: By addressing trigger points, trigger point injections can restore range of motion and improve overall mobility.
  • Non-Surgical: Trigger point injections are a non-surgical option for pain relief, minimizing the need for more invasive treatments.

Is Trigger Point Injection Right for You?

If you're experiencing persistent pain and discomfort due to work-related injuries, trigger point injections could be a suitable treatment option for you. Our experienced medical professionals will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the most appropriate treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

 

Types Of Treatment

Medications
Depending on the disorder, medications can include anti-inflammatory drugs, immunosuppressants, corticosteroids, and disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs).
Lifestyle Changes
Adopting a healthy lifestyle through balanced nutrition, regular exercise, stress management, and adequate sleep can support overall well-being.
Immunosuppressive Therapy
Some autoimmune disorders may require medications that suppress the immune system's activity to prevent further damage.

    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.

    Dr Stauss is the most compassionate doctor I have had in this 16 yr journey of chronic back pain . He takes the time to listen to you and helps you decide what treatment will help give you back your life with less pain. He is amazing. I have 75 % pain relief. I never thought I would have a life with minimal pain again.

    The thought of never being able to work again let alone participate in physical activity was depressing. Dr. Stauss went over the available options and with his help I selected an intrathecal pain pump. 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 to both and the team at Advanced Pain Management
