What are Trigger Point Injections?

A Trigger Point Injection (TPI) is an outpatient procedure that is designed to reduce or relieve the pain of trigger points. Trigger points are small, tender knots that can form in muscles or the fascia (the soft, stretchy connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs). A Trigger Point Injection is a non-surgical procedure for pain that only takes a few minutes to complete in the office.

What can I expect when having a Trigger Point Injection?

In preparation for a Trigger Point Injection for pain, the patient is positioned comfortably. The physician will then press and pinch the skin to locate the targeted trigger point. Once identified, the physician cleanses the skin. A topical anesthetic may be used to temporarily numb the area.

The physician will carefully insert a needle into the trigger point, injecting an anesthetic mixture. This mixture causes the trigger point to relax. While it is common to feel relief after one trigger point injection, each patient is different and your physician may recommend additional injections.
