Trigger Point Injections

What are Trigger Point Injections?

As a pain management specialist, Dr. Abdallah may use trigger point injections (TPI) to help relieve pain in patients who have chronic muscle pain, tension headaches, or fibromyalgia. Trigger points are areas of tight muscle fibers that can cause pain and discomfort. These points can develop due to injury, overuse, or stress. TPI involves injecting a small amount of local anesthetic or a combination of anesthetic and steroid medication into the trigger point to help alleviate the pain.

The injection works by interrupting the cycle of pain signals that are being sent from the trigger point to the brain. By reducing the inflammation and tension in the muscle, the trigger point injection can help provide significant relief from pain. The injection itself is typically quick and minimally invasive. In addition to providing pain relief, TPI can also help improve mobility and reduce muscle spasms. It is often used in conjunction with other pain management therapies, such as physical therapy, massage, and medications, to provide comprehensive pain management care.

It’s important to note that TPI is not suitable for everyone, and patients should discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with Dr. Abdallah.
