About Trigger Points
A trigger point is a “knot” in the muscle or a spot of sensitivity in the tissue surrounding the muscle. These areas can cause significant muscle cramps, which can lead to pain in the neck, back, and other areas of the body. At Lewis Pain & Physical Medicine, Dr. Jerry Lewis provides trigger point injection therapy for patients who are experiencing pain related to tight muscles. A trigger point injection involves injecting a combination of an anesthetic and a cortisone steroid into the trigger point. This works to diminish pain and make the trigger point inactive. Contact our Frisco, TX office to learn more about trigger point injections and how they can relieve muscle pain.
What Are The Benefits?
Suffering from ongoing pain due to knots in your muscle at your trigger points does not have to dictate your life. At Lewis Pain & Physical Medicine, trigger point injections help give our patients a number of 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
Ideal Candidates for Trigger Point Injections
Trigger points can be caused by overuse of the muscle, injury, and trauma. They can also be 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, tinnitus, temporomandibular joint pain, decreased range of motion, and low back pain. Dr. Lewis may first suggest physical therapy or other forms of less invasive treatment for minor trigger points or as an initial treatment option before suggesting trigger point injections.
Dr. Lewis performs trigger point injections as an in-office procedure. The entire procedure only takes a few minutes and several areas can be treated in one visit. Dr. Lewis may mark the area being treated before injecting the anesthetic and cortisone steroid medication into the affected areas. Patients should be able to leave the office directly following their treatment.
What to Expect after Trigger Point Injections
Patients can expect to feel pain relief shortly after the injections because of the anesthetic. In many cases, only a one-time injection procedure can help resolve a trigger point. However, if the trigger point was caused by a chronic condition, regular injections may be required to maintain results. Dr. Lewis will work with you to create an appropriate treatment plan that can be the most effective for your specific condition.

I had my first steroid injection in my back since last March. So far so good. The best part of this experience today, by far, was the nurse anesthetist. Her bedside manner and attention to detail were top notch.
