You will be positioned so the muscle(s) carrying a trigger point, which is located via ultrasound, may be accessible to the doctor. The skin above this area is then cleaned and the needle delivering the medication is inserted. Initial reactions such as sudden pain or spasm in the muscle(s) being treated are common and temporary.
Optimal trigger point injections may require multiple injections of the same area. This ensures complete coverage of the affected muscle(s) by the medications, and thorough deactivation of the trigger point.
The average trigger point injection procedure lasts several minutes.
