How Trigger Point Injections Treat Chronic Stress-Related Pain

Trigger Point Injections Help Relieve Chronic Pain

Chronic muscle pain can affect your quality of life to the point you can't easily move in a specific motion. At Advanced Medical Solutions in Myrtle Beach, we understand how this pain happens and we can help you regain functionality and provide muscle tension relief. Trigger point injections are a form of regenerative medicine that helps the body heal itself and prevent further episodes of pain. Here's a look at how it works.

Understanding Myofascial Pain Syndrome

If you've ever experienced a painful muscle knot that won't resolve no matter what you try, you have a case of myofascial pain syndrome. It's a type of chronic pain that occurs when performing a repetitive motion or it is caused by stress-induced muscle tension. Therapies such as massages, hot/cold compresses, topical analgesics, and resting the affected area aren’t usually effective. The pain comes back, sometimes worsens, and it can spread to other parts of your body. You need tension relief, but you've discovered that traditional treatments don't seem to work, much less stick.

How to Trigger Point Injections Work

Trigger point injections contain either an anesthetic, corticosteroid, or botulinum toxin A (Botox). Once the injection is ready, the medical professional locate the trigger point that causes the pain and inserts the needle directly into the targeted location. You may feel a burning or crunching sensation as the medication flows into the affected area, but the sensation fades as the muscle tension relief that is delivered by the medication begins to take hold. The chemicals within the body that cause the pain and tension are released from the affected area and swept away by the body. The result is long-term relief from the pain and regaining the ability to move your body without the fear of pain.
