Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles. They form when a muscle can’t relax. Sometimes you can actually feel these knots under your skin when pressure is applied to a painful area. Common reasons why a trigger point can form is traumatic injuries, overexertion, muscle tension, muscle spasms, pinched nerves, and even hormonal imbalances are common causes of trigger points.
A trigger point injection can help soothe and relax muscle pain, promote circulation, and decrease pain. Areas that benefit most from these types of injections are arms, legs, lower back, and neck. Trigger point injections are also successful in treating fibromyalgia, tension headaches, and/or myofascial pain.
