Find relief with trigger point injections

When muscle fibers are injured, whether through trauma or overuse, a knot-like scar known as a trigger point can form. Patients with arthritis are at an increased risk of developing trigger points. Trigger points can occur in a variety of areas and may be painful, tight, or become inflamed. At Seaside Rheumatology and Wellness Center in Encinitas, California, we offer trigger point injections as a cost-effective method for alleviating pain.

What you should know about trigger points

Trigger points can have many different causes, everything from conditions like fibromyalgia to injuries, trauma, or even chronic tension headaches. The knots that form at trigger points are often painful or tender and can be felt when touching the skin. Patients may even notice that the pain can radiate to other areas of the body. 

Trigger point injections

Trigger point injections can be a highly effective way to relax the affected muscle and alleviate pain. Different medications can be used in the injections, but most commonly, they contain a combination of an anesthetic and a corticosteroid. 

There can be some discomfort or swelling immediately following your injections, but this will wear off. Over-the-counter pain medications and ice packs can help with any pain. In the weeks following the trigger point injections, you will notice a relaxing of the muscles, and the knotted muscle will begin to go away.
