Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a treatment used to treat chronic muscular pain. Triggers points are focal areas of spasm and inflammation, often a palpable nodule in the muscle, more commonly known as a “muscle knot”. The Prolo solution of 10-15% Dextrose plus Procaine/Lidocaine an anesthetic is injected into the trigger point of the muscle. The aggravation of the injection solution causes the muscle to relax, reducing the symptoms of muscle pain and tightness. What to expect for the treatment is similar to Prolo injections of the joints, in that it requires 3-6 procedures for optimal results, but number of sessions may varies depending on the body’s ability to heal.
What to expect…
- Minimal pain at the injection site
- Muscle soreness or tenderness after the injection
- Minimal bruising is possible at the injection site
