Cost and Advantages of Trigger Point Injections in Encinitas Area

Chronic muscle pain and discomfort is a common complaint of patients who have knots and tight muscles that cannot be relaxed through manual methods such as massage or exercise. In situations such as this, patients experience chronic discomfort caused by irritated nerves, which can send referred pain throughout the body. Patients in the Encinitas, CA area who are interested in learning more about trigger point injections available at Seaside Rheumatology and Wellness Center can find out more about the benefits and cost of this treatment to manage their pain.

What are trigger point injections?

Trigger point injections, or TPIs, are a treatment option for patients who have painful muscles and knots that send referred pain throughout the body. If muscle relaxers, massage therapy, or other manual methods of treatment fail to work, trigger point injections may be recommended by Dr. Peter Lloyd. Trigger point injections are injections of steroid medications that are administered by our doctor into specific trigger points on the body. The injection will reduce the activity in the trigger point and, in turn, reduce pain. In just a few minutes, patients can undergo trigger point injections and pinpoint their referred pain for relief.

How much do trigger point injections cost?

The cost of trigger point injections varies for several reasons. First, the type of injectable used will vary in cost. Second, the number of injections will also raise the expense of undergoing these treatments. Third, patients with health insurance may have a reduced or eliminated cost depending on their benefits. Our front office team can help determine any benefits that can be used to address any remaining out-of-pocket costs.
