Hyperirritable spots in tight bands of muscles, trigger points can often be felt as a knot. They are problematic because they can restrict movement and cause muscle weakness, as well as causing referred or radiating pain. Trigger points can also manifest in a variety of ailments, including tension headache, tinnitus, temporomandibular joint pain, low back pain, decreased range of motion in the legs, and often accompany chronic musculoskeletal disorders.
By using trigger point injections, doctors at Integrated Wellness are able to target these spots directly, delivering medications that can contain all natural ingredients, or more traditional injections like lidocaine, steroids, or anti-inflammatory medications. Through a thorough examination and diagnostic assessment, they are able to design a treatment plan for each patient, to address individual medical concerns and provide chronic pain management.
