TRIGGER POINT INJECTION
A treatment used for the purpose of alleviating pain and improving posture and movement. It uses fine syringe needles with the injection of an anesthetic such as Marcaine. This office uses sterile, disposable needles and maintains a clean and safe environment. The needles are inserted through the skin into the underlying tissues and muscles at specific points known as myofascial trigger points. When a twitch response is obtained the trigger point is released. Manual therapy techniques are often incorporated into treatment.
