Trigger Point Injections for Pain Relief
Some types of chronic pain can be relieved with trigger point injections, followed by a specific set of physical exercises. This is an appropriate treatment for muscle-related pain, associated with points in the muscles and connective tissue that have tighter muscle bands causing chronic pain. Breaking the cycle of pain with trigger point injections is just one of the options offered at our clinic and works to reduce the inflammation in knotted or tight muscles in the arms, legs, back or neck.
The treatment involves injections made up of a mixture of medications that serve to reduce the inflammation causing pain. It relaxes the tight muscles to help increase blood flow to the treatment zone and promote healing. Prior to the injections, local anesthetic is applied to make the treatment comfortable to experience.
BOTOX Injections for Pain Relief
While BOTOX is generally known as a cosmetic treatment, the product can be highly effective in treating certain types of chronic pain. Physical issues such as chronic back pain, headaches, and muscle spasms can frequently be alleviated with targeted injections of this neurotoxin. BOTOX injections may be the treatment that will help you achieve relief from arthritis pain, stiff neck, lower back pain from various physical conditions, nerve pain, muscle spasms, or myofascial pain (related to muscles and connective tissues).
BOTOX treatments for chronic pain are both fast and effective. It requires a few days for the neurotoxin to take effect, with results that can last for three to six months, or longer. This treatment should be followed with physical therapy exercises to strengthen the affected area.
