Trigger Point Injections in Overland Park & Kansas City
Reduced Muscle Pain for a Better You
If you’re dealing with muscle tension and knots, trigger point injections might be the right therapy for you. At Peak Health in Overland Park, we know that different injuries require different types of therapy. That’s why trigger point injections are one of the tools our medical staff use to help relieve painful knots and muscle tension.
We understand that constant pain in your back, neck, and shoulders can greatly reduce your comfort and even disrupt your sleep. By injecting into certain trigger points, or places where the muscle tension is greatest, we can immediately relax the tense muscles and give you instant relief. Trigger point injections are a particularly effective treatment for cases of fibromyalgia. Don’t hesitate to schedule a visit to our Overland Park wellness center to receive the pain relief you have been waiting for.
Relieving Muscle Pain and Tension
Trigger point injections focus on alleviating muscle pain and muscle tension, typically in your back, neck or shoulders. By targeting knots in the muscle or trigger points, the injection aims to make the trigger point inactive and help alleviate the pain. The procedure consists of inserting a small needle into a patient’s trigger point, injecting a local anesthetic. The process only takes a few minutes and can usually lead to sustained pain relief after just a few injections.
Our Overland Park nurse practitioners use trigger point injections to treat several ailments, such as:
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Lower back pain
- Upper back pain
In addition to treating muscle pain, trigger point injections are useful for treating tension headaches and fibromyalgia, helping alleviate muscle tension and reduce pain. Our team will work with you to determine whether trigger point injections are right for you or if a different form of therapy would be more suited to your pain.
