Have you ever experienced a small “knot” that was painful? A trigger point is a “knot” you can usually feel in tissue surrounding the muscle or the muscle itself. These trigger point “knots” can lead to pain in areas of the body such as the neck or back. A trigger point injection in Frisco simply injects both anesthetic and cortisone steroid into the trigger point. The result is wonderful – diminished pain and inactivates the trigger point. Dr Adeel Haq has the experience and expertise to successfully alleviate trigger points using trigger point injections.
Are You a Trigger Point Injection Candidate IN Frisco
Trigger points are usually caused by muscle overuse, trauma or injury. It can also be caused by chronic conditions such as myofascial pain or fibromyalgia. If you are experiencing pain caused from “knots”, you might be a candidate for trigger point injections. Dr Haq will want to look at the source of your trigger points before recommending trigger point injections.
Trigger point injections take just a few minutes to perform. Several sites may be injected in one visit. Because of the anesthetic, patients may feel pain relief shortly after the injections. The frequency of the trigger point injections will be determined by Dr Haq.
