Trigger Point Therapy in O’Fallon

Man in plaid holding elbowIf you’ve been struggling with chronic pain, muscular spasms or tendinitis, you may have come across the term “trigger point therapy” during your search for relief. Trigger point injections are a popular treatment option for individuals experiencing pain and discomfort caused by overworked muscles.

These injections involve the injection of a local anesthetic agent into single or multiple muscle groups that have been compensating for an area of injury.

What is Trigger Point Therapy?

This type of appointment is a form of physical therapy that helps reduce injuries and chronic spasms. It is done by using a very small needle to inject lidocaine and Marcaine, which are local anesthetic agents, into the muscles at different intervals. This type of therapy works in conjunction with other treatments such as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and cellular therapy.

Trigger point therapy is an ultrasound guided procedure that helps reduce spasm and pain in the muscles. It can help rehab injuries much more efficiently by reducing pain and chronic spasm. It’s a simple, non-invasive, outpatient treatment that can be done to help increase mobility and improve quality of life for many patients experiencing chronic pain and discomfort. The injections are usually administered in a series and based on the patient’s response, making them completely unique to your specific needs.
