Muscle aches and pains can follow you throughout your life. These aches can occur after exercising, during jobs that require strenuous lifting or repetitive movement, and holding one position for too long. It can even occur from myofascial or craniofacial pain. To tend to this discomfort, many people turn to self-care, which might include over-the-counter pain relievers, ice and heat compresses or even massage.
However, if the pain is persistent it can lead to continual discomfort from a trigger point, which is a sensitive, knotted area of muscle. One treatment option is trigger point injections, which can help to relieve pain quickly while also restoring muscle function.
To help to better understand trigger point injections, we have listed some of the benefits in the infographic below.
