What is Trigger Point Injection Therapy?

Trigger points are “knots” or points of tension in a muscle that cause pain and discomfort. TPs can be a chronic issue or simply due to recent injuries or strains or simply posture and
positioning during our work day. These points tend to be painful and sensitive to pressure.
Sometimes they cause referred pain and can be misdiagnosed as a result.

A trigger point injection can help release or soothe a spastic muscle.
