Therapeutic injections are a conservative form of pain management. There are a few different types of therapeutic injections, including nerve blocks, epidural steroid injections, and radiofrequency nerve ablation. During a nerve block, medication – which may be a local anesthetic, steroid, or narcotic – is injected into or around damaged or problematic nerves.
Trigger Point Injections
A trigger point injection is a pain management treatment that involves injecting a local anesthetic, sometimes combined with a steroid medication, into a trigger point to relax muscles and relieve pain. A trigger point is a tender area of muscle that develops when the tissue surrounding the muscle, called fascia (or myofascia) contracts. A trigger point is often identified as a “knot,” that can cause pain in the area where it has developed. In some cases, a trigger point can even cause pain in another area of the body when it affects a nearby nerve; this is called referred pain.
