Life Wellness Center in Santa Fe offers Trigger Point Injection Therapy as an effective modality for inactivating trigger points and providing relief of symptoms. Trigger points are painful areas of muscle that include knots of muscle, that form when muscles do not relax. Many times knots can be felt under the skin. An anesthetic effect is produced when the injectable natural solution or if you prefer injectable analgesic medicine is injected into the tissues relieving the pain. It can also promote healing as it penetrates deep into the tissues that help in the healing of damaged tissues. The injected areas are usually where the trigger points are commonly found such as in the neck, shoulders, upper and lower back.
