What are Trigger Points?

A trigger point is an area of tightened muscle. These areas usually create a nodule that can be felt under the skin. When pushed on, these nodules (known as trigger points) can cause pain that radiates. Trigger points are most commonly located in the neck, shoulder, and back.

Trigger point symptoms may include:

  • Headache
  • Tinnitus
  • Temporomandibular Joint Pain (TMJ)
  • Knot or a firm nodule you can feel within the muscle
  • Radiating pain that travels when pressed on
  • Inflammation
  • Spasm
  • A tender area in the muscle

When Do Patients Need a Trigger Point Injection?

Trigger Points Sugar Land TX

Patients can benefit from a trigger point injection when a trigger point is identified as the culprit for causing pain. Our Sugar Land doctors often suggest these injections when the trigger point causes pain to radiate and travel to other parts of the body.

Those who seek this treatment often suffer from painful trigger points for a long time and cannot find other relief methods. Patients with conditions such as fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome can also find relief after the injections.

In addition, to receive optimal primary care, pain relief, trigger point injections require maintenance. Our doctors will provide you with the recommended maintenance schedule best for your unique needs.

"I saw Dr. Rimal for neck pain that I have been suffering with on and off for years. Rather than push pharmaceuticals, she recommended platelet rich plasma PRP injections. I can honestly say I have more range of motion with out pain than I have had in a very long time. Now, after doing some of my own reading on PRP and regenerative medicine I am looking forward to learning about other treatments she offers at her office. I did not even know treatments like this were an option, so do yourself a favor and do some research. I would recommend Dr. Rimal and her staff to anyone looking for an honest and knowledgeable healthcare provider that is up to speed on the latest medical treatments."
