Tailored Solutions for Myofascial Pain Relief in Atlanta, GA

Trigger Point Injections

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.

Trigger point injections (TPI) are a therapeutic procedure for managing musculoskeletal pain. Trigger points are sensitive spots in the muscle, often described as 'knots', that can cause pain, discomfort, and even limit movement. These trigger points can develop due to various factors, including muscle overuse, trauma, or stress.

TPI is recognized as a safe and effective method for managing various forms of musculoskeletal pain. It is typically part of a larger, comprehensive pain management plan customized to meet each patient's needs.

Delivering Specialized Myofascial Pain Treatment in Atlanta

Alleviating Persistent Myofascial Pain with Trigger Point Injections

Trigger point injections (TPI) are a therapeutic procedure designed to treat pain and discomfort arising from "trigger points," or muscle knots. These trigger points often form due to physical stress, trauma, or muscle overuse, leading to restricted movement and chronic pain. At our clinic, we specialize in providing comprehensive TPI treatment plans tailored to each patient's specific needs.

Trigger points manifest through various symptoms, including:

  • Persistent, localized muscle pain
  • Decreased range of motion in the affected area
  • Muscle stiffness and weakness
  • Referred pain – pain that spreads to nearby areas

The TPI treatment process involves:

  • Identifying the trigger point through physical examination.
  • Injecting a small needle into the trigger point containing a local anesthetic, saline, or corticosteroid.
  • The injection works to numb the area, alleviate pain, and reduce inflammation.

Patients who undergo TPI therapy can experience multiple benefits, such as:

  • Immediate relief from pain and discomfort.
  • Improved mobility and flexibility.
  • Reduced reliance on pain medication.
  • Enhanced overall quality of life.

It's important to note that while TPI can provide significant relief, it's often most effective when incorporated into a broader pain management plan. This plan may include physiotherapy, massage, lifestyle changes, and other treatments depending on the individual case.

At The Physicians Spine & Rehabilitation Center of Atlanta, GA, we are committed to helping you navigate your health journey. Our team of experienced healthcare professionals is here to provide safe, effective, and personalized care to improve your well-being.
