Trigger point injections are minimally invasive pain treatments that involve injecting local anesthetics and anti-inflammatory medications into the painful knots of tight muscles in the body, also known as trigger points. If you’re experiencing chronic pain because of fibromyalgia or other muscle-related conditions, trigger point injections can offer instant relief. Brand Surgical Institute provides highly personalized trigger point injections to alleviate chronic pain caused by inflamed trigger points.

How do trigger point injections alleviate pain?
The overuse of certain muscles can lead to the excessive tightening of muscles, leading to dense knots of muscles that can’t relax — these are known as trigger points. You may also develop sensitive trigger points because of fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, and numerous other muscle-related conditions. Since these dense knots of muscles can’t relax, they may cause inflammation and considerable muscle pain. You can feel the trigger points through your skin when you rub your muscles.
Trigger point injections are made of a combination of local anesthetics and anti-inflammatory medications, such as steroids and corticosteroids. When injected into the trigger points, the local anesthetics provide instant relief by numbing the tightened muscles. Meanwhile, corticosteroids help the muscles relax, alleviating inflammation and swelling. Over time, as the muscles relax and the inflammation goes away, you won’t experience muscle pains.
Benefits of trigger point injections:
- Minimally invasive pain treatment for muscular conditions
- Relaxes the dense knots of contracted muscles
- Alleviates inflammation and swelling
- Provides instant pain relief
- No harsh side effects or complications
