Arthritis injection therapies provide a safe and non-invasive alternative to surgery. With a proper and prompt diagnosis, the treatment of the affected area will typically allow most patients to resume normal activities and return to work in a relatively short period of time.
Muscle areas that are extremely painful and characterized by the presence of the trigger points, are treated through the use of Trigger point injections. A traumatized area in the muscle, which can feel like a knot or a tight, taut band of the muscle, and is tender to deep pressure or palpation, is called a trigger point. While the most common areas they develop in are, the neck, shoulders, and low back, trigger points may occur in any area of the body. For a consultation, please contact the Pain Clinic NYC today if you think that you may be a candidate for Trigger Point Injections.
