Are your back and neck muscles constantly tight from working on the computer, exercise or an old injury? Through trigger point injections, you may find relief. This procedure targets tight muscle bands and causes them to relax through a series of injections.
In this video, Point Performance’s Dr. Mark Klaiman demonstrates trigger point injections to relieve neck myofascial pain. Trigger point injections are done with a thin needle which is inserted into tight muscle bands. A doctor will then use a pecking technique that makes the muscles twitch. After the muscle twitches, it typically relaxes. Then the technician injects a lidocaine solution to help break the pain cycle.
