Muscles are a common source of pain especially when they develop little knots, we call trigger points. These can be a great source of chronic pain and nerve irritation. Often this can be relieved with physical therapy, heat treatments, massage and changing postural factors. When it persists, we can perform painless trigger point injections with an anesthetic into the muscle to break up the spasm.
Trigger Point Injections
We describe the injection as an internal massage of the knot to tease it apart and release the spasm. Since there are over 600 muscles in the body this technique requires a keen knowledge of the anatomy and a skilled pair of hands to find the painful trigger points. Dr. Magaziner was trained in this technique by the pioneer in the trigger point release field, Dr. Janet Travell who was President Kennedy’s personal physician, who treated his chronic back pain when he was in office.
Individual results may vary from patient to patient. For more information on trigger point injections, please contact our North Brunswick office.
