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. If you would like to learn more about our trigger point injections and other pain management interventions at UpCare Clinics, please reach out to our Olathe, KS office today.
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. At UpCare Clinics, trigger point injections help give our patients many benefits, including:
- Long, sought-after pain relief
- Targeted treatment for small, hard-to-access pain points
- Allow you to return to activity and lifestyle that you may have avoided
- Freedom from chronic pain and discomfort
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.
UpCare Clinics Reviews
I had another great experience at UpCare Primary clinic. They are thorough, patient, caring and answered every question. Completely happy with my visit there.
Moved back to KC a year ago and it’s been so difficult establishing primary care. Finding an appointment is hard because it’s 4+ months out, but finding a primary care doctor that cares, is personable, and loves what they do is nearly impossible. I was lucky and fortunate enough to find an appointment with Dr. Priya Gujarati relatively quick. Not only that, but she is the unicorn I mentioned above. She’s friendly, listens intently, and truly cares about what you’re going through. I haven’t felt this comfortable at a doctors office in many years. Glad I found Dr. Priya and the amazing staff at UpCare Clinic!
Great Experience. Very friendly
Doctor G is very very easy to speak with. It was obvious that she was listening to everything I had to say. I will continue to go to UpCare clinic. I also see the dentist at this office as well. It's very convenient having both in the same office.
professional and knowledgeable. clean office and rooms.
