What Are Trigger Point Injections?
You may struggle with muscle pain daily with "knots" or areas that are highly sensitive to touch (called trigger points). The agonizing pain you feel from aching trigger points and pain from nearby irritated nerves can be addressed with functional medicine. To treat this pain, our skilled team offers trigger point injections to patients who need them most. Our trigger point therapies are medical-grade injections made of special solutions that may include vitamins, minerals, local anesthetics, small amounts of steroids, or homeopathic remedies.

How Are Trigger Point Injections Performed?
Trigger points can be caused by muscle overuse, injury, or trauma. They can also occur due to a chronic condition, such as fibromyalgia or myofascial pain syndrome. In some cases, trigger points may occur in the form of tension headaches, decreased range of motion, and low back pain.
Trigger point injections can be beneficial for your condition. During your appointment, one of our experienced healthcare professionals will insert a small needle into your painful trigger point to make it inactive and alleviate pain. Injections are given in the office and usually take a few minutes to complete. Several sites may be injected in one visit as well.
What Should I Expect After Trigger Point Injections?
Following trigger point injections at UpCare Clinics, you may experience some temporary numbness or discomfort, which may be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relievers or ice packs. In the days following your injection, you should refrain from vigorous activities. Pain relief at the treated area typically begins within 1 – 3 days following the injection and may last about a month. If pain returns after that point, you may wish to discuss subsequent injections at our Olathe, KS facility.
