What Is a Trigger Point Injection?
Trigger points (TrP) are tight areas in your muscles, also known as muscle knots, which are usually quite painful. Sometimes doctors use lidocaine to help take away the pain, which wears off in only an hour or so. Lidocaine also generally doesn’t get rid of the knot, treating only the symptom of pain.
As an alternative treatment, we provide trigger point injection therapy, commonly known as TrP injections. Our trigger point injection treatment uses a small solution of vitamins and electrolytes, carefully injected directly into the muscle to hydrate the damaged tissue and promote a speedy recovery. This treats the cause of the pain as opposed to just the pain itself, offering a complete treatment plan that eliminates pain for good.

Benefits of Trigger Point Injections
- Locally hydrate – We all know we need to hydrate with activity. Sometimes that doesn’t always work. Trigger point injection gets the water and electrolytes to the muscles that need it.
- Release knots – While we offer dry needling to release knots as well, TrP injection treatment takes needling to the next level. We release the muscle knot and give your muscle the nutrients and electrolytes it needs to repair itself. It’s perfect for chronic muscle knots that you haven’t been able to find treatment for or new injuries that require attention.
- Speed recovery – Our body needs specific nutrients to perform at its best. Exercise can deplete the body and especially the muscles of the nutrients it needs. TrP injections get the nutrients where they’re needed.
Our TrP Injection Treatment Program
Trigger points can be tricky to treat properly with lasting results, but that’s where trigger point injection comes in. These hydrating electrolyte solutions have been the best way our lead doctor has found to treat them, leading to our office to focus on TrP treatments as the preferred recommendation for muscle knots and pain.
Number of Treatments Needed
The number of treatments required can vary. Our office will provide a personalized plan for your injury, including a timetable for expected required number of treatments. (Adjustable based on results.) If you have an acute injury, ranging from a few days to a couple weeks old, the injury will generally be resolved with one to three trigger point injection treatments. For chronic cases (knots that have been present for years), we generally recommend a series of five treatments.
