Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections (TPI) are typically used to treat painful areas of the body. A trigger point is a knot or tight, ropy band of muscle that forms when muscle fails to relax. The trigger point can often be felt under the skin and may twitch involuntarily when touched. Also, trigger points can cause pain in other areas of the body while not directly making the person aware of their presence. As an example of this referred pain, we often see headaches that are caused by trigger points in muscles of the neck and shoulders. The doctors at Human Reconstruction can locate and treat your trigger points in order to get you out of pain fast.
