Trigger Point Steroid Treatment Bergen County

At Complete Pain & Spine Institute, we specialize in providing advanced pain relief solutions, including Trigger Point Steroid Injections. Under the expert care of Dr. Ali, our team is dedicated to offering this targeted treatment to patients suffering from painful muscle areas, known as trigger points, that commonly contribute to chronic musculoskeletal pain.
Trigger points are painful knots in muscles that can cause pain, tenderness, and even referral pain to other parts of the body. Trigger Point Steroid Injections are a minimally invasive procedure designed to alleviate these symptoms. The treatment involves injecting a corticosteroid and anesthetic directly into the trigger point, helping to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.

Trigger Point Steroids Q & A

Most of the time, your spine nerves are damaged or inflamed due to disc herniation or spinal stenosis. The inflamed spinal nerves can cause pain in your neck, arm, back, and leg.
Trigger Point Injections are typically used to treat headaches, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, and persistent discomfort in the tissues that encompass your muscles. The neck, shoulders, and back of the head are the most prevalent locations. If you experience trigger points in these regions you may suffer from headaches or debilitating pain. If your trigger points are in the lower back, your symptoms might include pain in the back, legs, and buttocks. Trigger Point Injections are a quick and minimally invasive procedure that can provide direct relief and improve your quality of life.
Trigger Point Injections are a quick and minimally invasive procedure, usually done without the need for sedation. The injection site will first be cleansed and sterilized so that a local anesthetic can be used to make the procedure as painless as possible. A numbing agent will then be directly administered into the muscles along with a small dose of steroid. The affected muscle group will spasm in response. Some individuals may require more than one injection, with each successive injection causing smaller and smaller spasms until the muscles have been calmed and the spasms are no longer happening. This is the optimal outcome, as it relieves pain and reduces the trigger point's effects almost entirely.

After the needles have been withdrawn, the injection site will be covered with a bandage. There isn't anything further that needs to be done. The use of the sore area is recommended, as it may aid in the distribution of the medicine throughout the muscle. Many patients will experience instant pain alleviation as well as better function. Some individuals may take a few days to feel a reduction in pain. The amount of time the pain relief will last can vary from a few weeks to a number of months. The procedure itself can be repeated every 2 – 3 months.
